Letting agents and private landlords have been given a deadline of November 1 to put an end to "unfair" adverts which hide extra charges tenants will have to pay.

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has sent letters to trade bodies across the letting sector to help them comply with the deadline to make sure that compulsory charges such as administration fees, reference checks and inventory costs are clearly stated up front.
