October sees the Second Reading of the Tenant Fees Bill in The House of Lords. There will be a debate in Parliament, with the Government minister introducing the measure and further contributions from Lords.
During last month’s reading, MP's rejected an amendment for fees to be capped at £300 and they voted down another proposal for potential maximum fines to be increased from £5,000 to £30,000.
The Bill is expected to be made law by the early part of next year as there seems to be no significant opposition.

Staff across Mayfair Town and Country offices hosted their own coffee morning to raise money and awareness for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The teams dusted off their baking trays to make cakes for the event, they made a selection of sponges, brownies, muffins and cupcakes. They even brought out their best crockery to serve coffee, tea and a sneaky glass or two of fizz!
The Ilminster office sold raffle tickets for a number of prizes including chocolates, wine and the main prize being a luxury hamper. The teams raised £222 in total for this great cause.
Principal Harriet Stacy-Marks said: “We are always so overwhelmed by the generosity of the public in our local towns in supporting the charity events we put on throughout the year. It just goes to show that the West Country is a friendly and special place to live and work.
I am very proud of the amount of money that has been raised by our teams and want to thank everyone involved, particularly the local businesses who kindly donated raffle prizes for the event. Watch this space to see what we get up to next!”

The consultation on the government’s proposal of minimum-term tenancies came to an end last recently, with many landlords left wondering of the outcome.
The official consultation had been triggered by the government saying that 80% of tenants currently have contracts of 6 or 12 months, but many want longer tenancies, with Housing Secretary James Brokenshire claiming this to be unfair - particularly for families with schoolchildren who may be required to uproot due to the terms of their tenancy.
