Welsh Government Consultation on Banning Fees levied on Tenants
The Welsh Government has recently opened a consultation on proposals that would see letting agents and landlords, including park owners renting park homes, banned from charging fees to tenants in the private rented sector.
The consultation is seeking the views of both landlords and tenants on what action the Welsh Government should take to end unfair fees charges to tenants. Specifically, the consultation is seeking to address:
- Which fees, if any, are justifiably being charged to tenants;
- Fees paid by landlords to agents; and
- Possible consequences of banning fees.
The consultation is open until 27 September 2017.
