A group that has campaigned fervently in favour of a tenant fees ban in England will appear today to give evidence to MPs who are inquiring into the private rented sector.
Generation Rent, which in 2016 made a call for fees to be abolished in their entirety, will be joined by the two main landlord associations and the boss of a firm that designs, builds and rents homes.
Those appearing before the Communities and Local Government Committee which is inquiring into the private rented sector this afternoon include Adrian Jeakings, chairman of the National Landlords Association, and David Smith, policy director of the Residential Landlords Association.
They will be joined by Dan Wilson Craw, director of Generation Rent, and Mette Isaksen, policy researcher at Citizens Advice, which has called for ‘rip off’ letting agent fees to be abolished.
It’s the second set of such hearings by the Communities and Local Government Committee this year as the inquiry into the PRS continues.
