Committee of Advertising Practice issues new guidance for landlords and letting agents

11-10-2013 14:46

The Committee of Advertising Practice (the CAP) has issued new guidance for private landlords and letting agents regarding information about fees carried in their advertisements.  This change follows a ruling from earlier in the year concerning a letting agent who had not provided enough information in an advert.

The guidance can be found on the CAP’s website here:  www.cap.org.uk/Advice-Training-on-the-rules/Advice-Online-Database/Compulsory-costs-and-charges-Letting-agents.aspx and will be worth a read if you are a landlord or letting agent.

CAP intend to carefully check advertisements from 1 November 2013 so if you need any information from CAP please see their website for contact details:  www.cap.org.uk/News-reports/Media-Centre/2013/New-guidance-for-letting-agents-and-private-landlords.aspx 

If you would like any advice on the CAP codes generally, please contact Emma Hayward.
