Labour pledges to ban high letting agent fees

Ahead of a party campaign for the European and local elections, Ed Miliband tweeted that a Labour government would aim to ban high agent fees.


A Labour government will make sure renters get a fair deal: we'll make long-term tenancies the norm and ban letting agents fees for tenants.


On average renters are made to pay £350 by letting agents just to move home. A Labour government will stop that.


Good to discuss Labour's plan to address challenges faced by generation rent with @rupahuq yesterday in West London



Miliband pledges cap on private rent rises

Labour would cap private sector rent rises, ban letting agents charging tenants fees and introduce three-year tenancies, Ed Miliband will promise as he launches the party's campaign for the European and local elections.
