There’s no going back: Tenant Fees Bill receives Royal Assent

first_imgHome » News » There’s no going back: Tenant Fees Bill receives Royal Assent previous nextRegulation & LawThere’s no going back: Tenant Fees Bill receives Royal AssentThe Queen has signed the bill, which will come into effect on June 1st this year, although guidance on how it is to be implemented is expected to be published before that.Nigel Lewis13th February 20192 Comments3,175 Views The Tenant Fees Bill has received Royal Assent and the new act of parliament will soon be followed by official guidance outlining how the new regulations are to be implemented.Due to come into effect on June 1st this year, the news of its final journey into law has been heralded by Secretary of State for Housing James Brokenshire. He said it would “help renters keep more of their hard-earned cash” and prevent tenants being “stung by unexpected costs from agents or landlords”.The government recently confirmed that the fees ban is likely to cost landlords £82.9 million during its first 12 months and lettings agents 157.1 million.David Cox, Chief Executive of ARLA, said: “We’ve known the tenant fees ban has been coming for a long time, but with only 109 days to go until it comes into force, the industry must start taking time to prepare.”Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Grender (left) took to social media to say: “It was something I started as a Private Members Bill in 2016 and it’s been a long hard struggle.“But not as much of a struggle as it is for everybody who rents and gets ripped off by these fees that are paid to lettings agents.“Some are good agents, but there has been an awful lot of overcharging and bad fees that sometimes tip people over into homelessness. That is why I’m absolutely delighted that we are changing that.”Not everyone applauded the bill. Personal finance specialist Becky O’Connor at Insurance giant Royal London said that although she welcomed its Royal Assent, she said it “does not address the “structural issues of increasingly unaffordable rents, a lack of supply of decent private rental accommodation or the problem of security of tenure for people who want to put down roots while renting”.ARLA Royal assent tenant fees ban Tenant Fees Bill David Cox February 13, 2019Nigel Lewis2 commentsscott danby, medlock estates lettings medlock estates lettings 13th February 2019 at 1:04 pmThere’s always going to be a simple response to this and that is, why didn’t they just cap the fees?As an agent, we’ve charged a fair fee for many years with no increases and nobody, and I mean nobody, complains. It’s for referencing and admin at the outset only. No mid year fees, re-sign fees, cleaning fees etc etc etc.Why didn’t they just attack the high fee chargers and cap it?Log in to ReplyJulian Blackmore, BNE BNE 13th February 2019 at 10:22 amThe more they mess, the more it backfires, which will equal less private rented houses and less homes. Notice they don’t ban FTB mortgage arrangement fees? Oh yeah, because their chums run the banks.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

Yes, the ‘Boris Bounce’ really is happening, says leading research firm

first_imgThe expected uplift in the property market following the General Election and the road to Brexit subsequently being cleared is happening, it has been claimed.But it is not just enthusiastic sales directors making the claim, but leading property industry research company TwentyCI, which has called the start of the ‘Boris bounce’.When the property sales market over the past five weeks (from late December until the third week of January) is compared to the same period last year, the number of sales agreed SSTC is up by 6% and exchanges have increased by 3%.In the prime market for homes for sale over £500,000, sales agreed SSTC are up by 10% and exchanges by 12%.And in the rarefied strata of the super-prime market for homes over £1 million, the number of sales agreed have increased by 11% and the number of homes coming to the market are up by 17%But the ‘Boris Bounce’ has yet to translate into new listings in other markets.”TwentyCI says the number of homes being listed for sale is down 7% year-on-year overall and static in the prime market.“Whilst we are not expressing a political opinion, government stability has been lacking for some time and this has not been good for the property market,” the company says.It also quotes leading consumer researcher Joe Staton of GfK, who says: “There is a clear sense of change in consumer sentiment this month.”“We haven’t seen such a robust increase in confidence about our economic future since the summer of 2016.”London agency Chestertons has also reported a January uplift in figures released yesterday.  It says that between the 2nd and 12th January, sales enquiries were up on last year by 76%, while new buyer registrations and the number of offers being made on properties were up 15.6% and 43.7% respectively.Read the TwentyCI report in full.twencyci Joe Staton GfK General Election Brexit January 30, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 2nd February 2020 at 12:18 pmSentiment, for sure is very positive, buyers are looking and agents are optimistic and are selling, though every January is positive after the Christmas slow down.I personally met over 50 industry figures in January, and communicated with around 150 more, and all of them felt that 2020 was going to a good year, some a great year.As a real estate analyst I spend half of my time pouring over figures, looking at the macro and micro and looking for trends and answers, whilst AI and ML may replace me soon, nothing beats meeting and speaking with many people in the property sector to get a sense of the mood and sense of travel.Stuart Ducker’s recent TwentyCi report – The future of the property market – and what this means for your brand or agency, is a very balanced analytical piece. Whilst it is cautiously optimistic it also focuses on the great potential of focusing on the rental sector, and the tenants who of course are a great revenue stream, 70% of first time buyers are renters.Personally, I think 2020 may be a game of two halves, the first part until after the Spring market will be very good, but lack of stock may be a problem. Sellers may get the whip-hand if they have good stock in good areas to sell, but stock levels may become depleted, with cautious vendors playing the wait and see game.But, the market hinges on buyer confidence, and come early Autumn though Brexit is done, to paraphrase the blonde bombshell, in many ways it has just begun.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

Food

first_imgI’m in Oxford’s stuffiest taxi shouting apologies into my mobile. The driver is plodding along smoking interminable cigarillos, insisting on the windows being up, and asking me for the third time the name of the restaurant. I am sweating in the heat, I have just bought a new jumper I don’t like, I don’t know anything about the essay on narratology I have to do, and to cap it all I have to go to Summertown just to get a bite of lunch. But it’s the slap-spanking kind of day that demands, once I finally sit down and apologise again to my blonde companion and her daughter, a Manhattan before the starters. This arrives in a brimming glass sloshing a lonesome shred of lemon peel about, and doesn’t taste of very much except dulled booze. Our waiter forgets to take our menus once we’ve ordered, brings sparkling instead of still, and doesn’t understand what ‘blue’ means as an order for steak, but at least we’re on the terrace and in the sunshine. “If you’re reviewing this place you and I should share their mixed specialty starter plate for two,” suggests Blonde (her daughter isn’t eating due to GCSE stress but enjoys a packet of millions as we do). When this comes it is at best forgettable: bit of humous, some kind of salsa dip, pitta bread that goes cardboardy too quickly, an over-spiced sauce with crumbly mince, and a shredded iceberg and onion salad in the middle. My tuna steak, which is not rare despite specifically being advertised as such in the menu, comes in a watery ratatouille which overcomes its own delicate flavour. Blonde’s steak is clearly not a sirloin as the menu promised. On inspection it is probably a fore rib or classic French entrecôte, but the kitchen failing to notice this difference, or worse, to fob us off with an inferior cut, simply won’t do. Still, nice to be in the sunshine. Oliver JP ThringARCHIVE: 3rd Week TT 2003last_img read more
