Charging to vary a tenancy: When a tenant has requested it, landlords and agents can charge to vary, assign or replace a tenancy. Such fees are capped at £50 unless the landlord can demonstrate that greater costs were incurred.

Payment on termination of a tenancy: Agents and landlords can require a tenant to make a payment for an early termination of the tenancy agreement at the tenant’s request. The payment cannot exceed the loss suffered by the landlord or reasonable costs incurred by the letting agent.

NB: If the amount of payment exceeds the reasonable costs of the letting agent or landlord in respect of the termination of the tenancy, the amount of the excess is a prohibited payment.
