Permitted payments and tenant protection information

Permitted payments
For properties in England, the Tenant Fees Act 2019 means that in addition to rent, lettings agents can only charge tenants (or anyone acting on the tenant's behalf) the following permitted payments:

  • Holding deposits (a maximum of 1 week's rent);

  • Deposits (a maximum deposit of 5 weeks' rent for annual rent below £50,000, or 6 weeks' rent for annual rental of £50,000 and above);

  • Payments to change a tenancy agreement eg. change of sharer (capped at £50 or, if higher, any reasonable costs);

  • Payments associated with early termination of a tenancy (capped at the landlord's loss or the agent's reasonably incurred costs);

  • Utilities, communication services (eg. telephone, broadband), TV licence and council tax;

  • Interest payments for the late payment of rent (up to 3% above Bank of England's annual percentage rate);

  • Reasonable costs for replacement of lost keys or other security devices;

  • Contractual damages in the event of the tenant's default of a tenancy agreement; and

  • Any other permitted payments under the Tenant Fees Act 2019.


For properties in Wales, the Renting Homes (Fees etc.) (Wales) Bill , once enacted, means that in addition to rent, lettings agents can only charge tenants (or anyone acting on the tenant's behalf) the following permitted payments:

  • Holding deposits (a maximum of 1 week's rent);

  • Security Deposits / BOND 

  • Utilities, communication services (eg. telephone, broadband), TV licence and council tax;

  • Payments for the late payment of rent;

  • A breach of a term of the contract;

  • Any other permitted payments under the Renting Homes (Fees etc.) (Wales) Bill and regulations once enacted.


Tenant protection
In addition to publishing relevant fees, lettings agents are also required to publish details of:

  • the redress scheme they are a member of; and

  • the name of the approved or designated Client Money Protection scheme they are a member of (if any).


Please note that lettings agents are required by law to publish on their websites information for potential tenants about relevant fees, redress schemes and client money protection schemes (including the names of those schemes). Relevant fees must also be published on third party websites, such as Rightmove. For properties to rent in England, details of the agent's membership of any redress scheme and client money protection scheme must also be published with their fees on Rightmove. It is the agent's responsibility to ensure that all relevant information is provided to Rightmove and is up to date and accurate. If the relevant information does not appear here, the agent may have included it within the property description.

Accepted tenants of a rental property are advised to complete the council tax form before or on the start date of the tenancy. There is one form of three a tenant must complete online at the Kirklees Council website, please see below.

CMP Certificate

"After having my house on the market previously with not many viewer I decided to take it off the market. After a while I decided to try the market again. I used ADM Residential as they were the best value and seemed to know the market very well. ADM managed to get many viewers and sold my house within 6 months. An efficient and outstanding service, will definitely use them when the time comes to sell again."
