Tax System

At present, landlords can deduct mortgage interest and other allowable costs from their rental income, before calculating their tax liability.

From 6 April 2020, tax relief for finance costs will be restricted to the basic rate of income tax, currently 20%. Relief will be given as a reduction in tax liability instead of a reduction to taxable rental income.

Draft Tenant Fees Bill (2017)

If passed as is prospective tenants will not be liable for any payments beyond the deposit and the initial month's rent. In effect; private landlords who undertake the management of their properties will no longer be able to charge additional fees for tenancy checks. You would not be able to insist that the prospective tenants undertake their own check and pass it on to the landlord as this would contravene part of the bill:
