EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order revokes the Consumer Rights Act 2015 (Commencement No. 2) (Wales) Order 2015 and brings into force, on 23 November 2015, Chapter 3 of Part 3 (miscellaneous and general) of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 (“the Act”) for remaining purposes. This Order therefore brings into force on 23 November 2015 those provisions of the Act which are not already in force.

Chapter 3 of Part 3 (miscellaneous and general) of the Act requires letting agents to publicise relevant fees at their premises and on their website (if they have one). Chapter 3 also provides for enforcement of the duty by every local weights and measures authority in Wales.

Chapter 3 of Part 3 (miscellaneous and general) came into force upon Royal Assent of the Act on 26 March 2015 for the purposes of making regulations.

Section 87 (enforcement of the duty of letting agents to publicise fees) and Schedule 9 (duty of letting agents to publicise fees: financial penalties) of the Act are commenced in this Order. Schedule 9 provides a procedure for appeals against financial penalties.
