A rental agency is suggesting landlords raise rents by $6 a week to recoup a fee they will charge when a ban on letting fees goes into effect.

The Government recently passed a law banning letting agencies and landlords from charging tenants “letting fees” at the start of their tenancies.

These fees – typically equal to one week’s rent – went towards the cost of advertising the property and vetting prospective tenants.
