TENANTS FEES

 

For properties in Wales, the Renting Homes (Fees etc.) (Wales) Act 2019 means that in addition to rent, lettings agents can only charge tenants the following permitted payments

  • Holding deposits (a maximum of 1 week’s rent);
  • Security deposits;
  • Where required, utilities (electricity, gas or other fuel, water, sewerage), communication services “telephone, internet, cable/satellite television), TV licence;
  • Council tax (payable to the billing authority);
  • Interest on the late payment of rent (where required under the tenancy agreement);
  • A breach of a term of the contract (where required under the tenancy agreement);
  • Any other permitted payments under the Renting Homes (Fees etc.) (Wales) Act and regulations applicable at the relevant time. This could include Payments in Default – examples of types of default payments could be:
  • Missed Appointments (such as the Agent arranging with a tenant for a contractor to carry out remedial work at the property, and a tenant subsequently refusing entry, or not being home to allow entry, resulting in charges to the landlord, as they appear on the stated invoice.
  • Avoidable or purposeful damage to property – damage to a property caused by neglect or carelessness or wilful behaviour by the tenant. The cost would be based on an invoice for the repairs and would not exceed the stated amount.
  • Replacement Keys – loss of keys by the tenant requiring the landlord or the landlord’s agent to arrange for the cutting of new keys and delivery of those keys to the tenant. The cost being equivalent to the actual cost of key cutting as stated on the invoice and delivery by first class post.
  • Emergency/out of hours call-out fees – fees incurred as a result of a landlord or landlord’s agent arranging for someone to attend the tenant’s property at the request of a tenant, such as a locksmith or an emergency glazier at the early hours of the morning, when the problem has been caused by the tenant in the first place, such as a window broken on purpose or keys locked inside a house. The cost to be determined by either the contractor’s invoice where an external contractor is used or £50.00 if a member of the landlord’s agents workforce attend outside normal office hours – that is 9am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday.
