NALS responds to Secretary of State for Wales comment

18th October 2017

The Secretary of State for Wales has called for greater protections for tenants and action against rogue landlords and letting agents.

Responding to this, Isobel Thomson, chief executive, NALS said:

“NALS notes the Secretary of State for Wales’ call for the Welsh Government to take measures to protect tenants in Wales from unjust fees and rogue landlords and agents.


“In relation to fees, we believe that the majority of agents in Wales charge a fair fee for a fair service and we await the outcome of the consultation by the Welsh Government on this issue. Wales already has full regulation of landlords and agents and therefore the regulatory organisation, Rent Smart Wales should by now be delivering the effective action necessary to ensure that tenants are offered the degree of protection they deserve and rogue landlords are exposed.”
