Bonett writes to Local MP about proposed changes to Tenant Fees

To Cllr Lloyd Russell-Moyle

Friday 22 September 2017

Dear Lloyd,

I hope you are well.

You will know my firm Bonett's in Kemp Town. We have been servicing landlords and tenants for a long time now and have a great reputation locally for really caring about giving both parties real support and service.

Of course, we work for our landlords and they pay us a commission for that work. But, we also work very hard for our tenants to ensure they get a good let and a positive experience. Apart from Tenant Referencing, we carry out a whole host of other tenant-led activities before, during and after a let to ensure things run smoothly for all our tenants. This is not cheap and, if all Tenant Fees are banned, we will not be able to maintain this level of service.

We hope you will ensure a 'middle way' which is fair to all parties is found. Should you require any more detail of how this could be achieved, we would love to help in drafting this. Please feel free to call or write to me.

Yours sincerely,

Paul - You will see tenant reviews here too :)
