Is it ok when landlord want me to pay £600 for credit check?

At the beginning it was £600 then £500 and now it is said that it’s special discount and I can have credit check for only £300 per person.

no it is not ok do not do it

Hi @Katarzyna4, No this is not allowed. The Tenant Fees Act came into force on 1st June 2019 and has banned the charging of tenants for referencing.

If this is a landlord you met on OpenRent, then please send an email with all the detail you have to info@openrent.co.uk so we can investigate!
