We introduced the Renting Homes (Fees etc.) (Wales) Bill into the National Assembly for Wales on 11 June 2018.

The Bill will prohibit certain payments in connection with the granting, renewal or continuance of standard occupation contracts. It will also make provision in respect of the treatment of holding deposits. Any person guilty of an offence under the Bill is liable on summary conviction to a fine

Any payment of money in connection with the above is prohibited, unless an exception applies. These are rent, security deposits, holding deposits and payments in default. A landlord may pay a letting agent for work undertaken by the agent on behalf of the landlord.

Information on the scrutiny of the bill is available at the National Assembly for Wales website.

We have conducted a series of impact assessments in advance of the introduction of the Bill. These include:

  • equality
  • children’s rights
  • Welsh language
  • justice
