The Welsh Government is asking landlords and property professionals for their views about banning tenant fees.
The assembly has already voted to start the ban from September 1.
But the decision about which fees to ban has yet to be finalised.
The government wants help in listing the fees that tenants should pay and the information landlords and letting agents should supply before taking a holding deposit on a property.
The proposal is that default fees should be capped at the actual cost to a landlord or letting agent, but the government is considering if landlords should set their own fees.
“As the government argued during scrutiny of the legislation, it is considered fair that a tenant who is late with their rent, and perhaps sometimes consistently so, should be liable to a late payment charge<” says the consultation document.
“Views from the sector on how to place a limit on such charges which strikes a reasonable balance between all parties are also sought through this consultation.”
The consultation also proposes that tenants should have clear details of the cost of renting a home.
“The intention behind prescribing the information to be provided upfront however, is to prevent a situation where the difference is not as a result of the circumstances of the tenant, but rather due to the agent or landlord not providing the relevant information at the outset,” says the consultation.
“It is considered that information relating to the costs associated with the tenancy and the need for a guarantor should be made clear prior to a holding deposit being taken as these have a significant bearing on a tenant’s ability to take up the tenancy.”
