Time is running out to make our case against a ban on fees

Monday 22 May 2017

You only have until Friday this week to respond to the consultation and less two weeks until the General Election.

There is still just about time to meet MPs who are re-standing and candidates from all parties to tell them why a ban on fees would be a bad for tenants and bad for the industry.

The deadline for responses to the consultation is Friday 2 June and the General Election will take place on Thursday 8 June.


Independent analysis commissioned by ARLA Propertymark has found that if an outright ban is introduced tenants will not ultimately save money, property standards are likely to fall and 4,000 jobs within the sector are at risk.


Use the information in our campaign toolkit and contact your local candidates now to ensure that they understand all of the issues when the time comes to vote. 


The consultation is your opportunity to have your say on your jobs and your industry. The sector needs to respond in numbers to be heard in this process. Following my previous email we have collated members’ views in order to respond to the consultation on behalf of the organisation. Thank you to all those of you who have shared your views with us.


Think about how and why a ban on fees would affect you and your business. Reply to some or all parts of the consultation today to make your voice heard! so come on, lets give it one last push!
