Question for Department for Communities and Local Government

UIN HL2046, tabled on 16 October 2017

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the answer by Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth on 28 March (HL Deb, col 466), when they expect to legislate to introduce compulsory client money protection for landlords and tenants.

It is essential that measures on Client Money Protection are considered in the round and implemented in a sensible and coherent way with other changes to the sector, notably the ban on letting agent fees paid by tenants, and regulation of letting agents.

We will provide more information on legislation and implementation shortly.
