The story so far
Generation Rent campaigned for the ban on letting fees which came into force on 1 June 2019, saving the average household £404 every time they move and ending the ludicrous annual renewal fee.
Our lobbying helped ensure that permitted fees are very strictly defined, deposits are capped, and you are protected from unfair practices when you put down a holding deposit.
What we are campaigning for now
Because finding a new deposit is still a huge barrier to moving home, we want the government to reform the deposit system so that you can transfer, or “passport”, some of the money to your next tenancy once you’ve paid your final month’s rent.
