    As from 1 May 2024, basic county court fee's will increase by 10%. This means the current fee when applying for possession order which is £355 will increase to £391, and the fee for applying for a warrant of possession that is currently £130 will increase to £143.

  • Right to Rent reforms

    Fines for failure to carry out proper Right to Rent checks have been increased, in the most extreme cases by 6200% (£80 to £5,000!). Make sure you are aware of these new rules to avoid these more expensive penalties. There are also some changes around valid documentation. Come on our Legal Update Course to find all the details of this and other important industry changes. There is one course for England and one for Wales due to the differing legislation (for example Right to Rent is not applicable in the same way in Wales).
