Seize the Fees

Join our online survey compiling concrete evidence to build a picture showing the scale of illegal fees being charged in the city.

 

In 2012 the Housing Act Scotland of 1984 was amended to make it clear that landlords could only charge tenants for deposit and rent. Despite this, letting agents in Glasgow have knowingly continued to charge 'administration fees', 'holding fees', 'booking fees' and a variety of other exploitative and illegal fees.

Whilst the law has been in place for years it continues to go unenforced. If the authorities don't feel the need to reign in this greedy and criminal behaviour, we as tenants must organise and bring them to heel ourselves.

Living Rent, Scotland's Tenants Union have already been fighting back against these illegal fees and have won back thousands of pounds for our members.

Our members have had enough and will be launching a campaign to crack down on the exploitative practice of charging illegal fees in Glasgow. In order to do this we need to hear from you - if you have been charged illegal fees, get in touch, fill in the survey, join the Union and get your money back!
