Schedule  1,  page  23,  line  30,  leave out paragraph 4 and insert—

 

“Payment of Landlord or Agent expenses

 

4    (1)  

A payment that a tenant is required to make to cover a landlord’s or agent’s

 

reasonable loss arising from a breach of a fair condition of the tenancy

 

agreement by the tenant is a permitted payment.

 

      (2)  

In this paragraph a “fair condition” is one that relates to—

 

(a)    

the replacement cost of a lost key or security devise, or

 

(b)    

payment of the amount of late rent payments and interest relating to

 

those payments

 

            

arising under or in connection with the tenancy.

 

      (3)  

Paragraph 4(2)(a) does not apply if the payment required—

 

(a)    

pertains to rent that was paid within 14 days of the date due under the

 

tenancy agreement, or

 

(b)    

exceeds the interest at Bank of England base rate on the rent from the

 

day the rent was due to the day it was paid.

 

      (4)  

Paragraph 4(2)(b) does not apply if the condition in the tenancy agreement

 

prescribes a fixed fee to be paid for each breach of this term.”

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This amendment would remove default fees as a permitted payment and permit the payment of

 

landlord and agent expenses where there is a clear cost due to a tenant fault.
