star this property answer text <p>Not all letting agents charge fees for right to rent checks and when right to rent was rolled out in the West Midlands, it was found that the majority of letting agents were not charging a fee for conducting the right to rent immigration checks. Letting agents are required to be fully transparent about their fees and publicise a complete tariff of fees in their offices and on their website. The Government believes that full transparency gives consumers the information they need. We intend to carry out a review later this year into how well this approach is working.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Placing families in temporary accommodation avoids a homelessness crisis and means no child will end up on the streets. However, the Government has been clear that placing families with children in bed and breakfast accommodation for longer than 6 weeks is both unacceptable and unlawful and we recognise the disruption this can have on children. Authorities must by law consider the impact any change in the location of accommodation will have on a household such as proximity to education and medical facilities. A small number of authorities (5%) account for 80% of cases where the 6 week limit is exceeded. The use of bed and breakfast accommodation for families with children is less than a third of the peak it was in 2002.</p><p>We provided funding to authorities so they could test innovative and sustainable approaches that would tackle this issue. The lessons learned have been disseminated to other authorities across the country.</p><p><br>Households leaving temporary accommodation now spend on average 7 months less than they did in 2010.</p>
