Agency fees could potentially be getting banned

The Welsh Government are determining if the fees are justifiable

A consultation on the fees charged to tenants in the private rented sector is currently underway.

The proposal focuses on the level and nature of fees being charged.

The overview reads: "This consultation seeks views on what action the Government should take to end unfair fees charged to tenants."

It also reviews if agency fees are justifiably charged to tenants, fees paid by landlords to agents and the possible consequences of banning fees.

Hollie Cooke, President of Cardiff University's Students' Union, wrote a statement on Facebook saying: "Do you agree with agency fees?

"The Welsh Government are currently undergoing a consultation on the fees charged to tenants in the private sector.

"This is your opportunity to influence whether the government should take action on the fees charged by estate agents and landlords."

The consultation was launched July 19 and ends September 27.
