London’s letting market is now more accessible and open than ever
This week the Tenant Fees Act came into effect, capping the amount renters can be charged for their deposits and waiving the majority of letting fees altogether.
The act is great news for tenants and those looking to rent in the capital, as it means they can take full advantage of using a knowledgeable and experienced letting agent at no extra cost.
All tenants looking to rent can be sure that ludlowthompson will provide them with expert advice, through offices staffed with agents that have real local knowledge and which all offer great customer service.
