Now Wales looks set to introduce fees ban legislation ‘imminently’

A draft Bill to introduce a fees ban in Wales looks set to be published imminently, ARLA Propertymark has said.

The Welsh Assembly confirmed in February that it would bring forward a Bill to ban fees in the private rented sector.

On Friday, it announced that it would be asking stakeholders to give evidence before the Equality, Local Government and Communities Committee within the next few months, but this will be after the Bill has been introduced.

ARLA chief executive David Cox said: “Looking at the Committee’s calendar of meeting dates it is likely that the draft Bill will be introduced imminently.

“We have already engaged with the Welsh Government to explain our grave concerns about the impact a ban will have on staff numbers, the quality of properties and rent prices across the sector.

“We will be engaging fully with Assembly Members to ensure they understand the negative implications that a ban will deliver.”

    Best of luck, they are renowned for doing their own thing and two fingers up to everyone. They have a labour majority with Assembly Members reporting a culture of bullying not just the public but within the Welsh Assembly.
