Rent Smart Wales 23/11/2015

NOVEMBER 2015 RENT SMART WALES Registration/Licensing Scheme has now been launched with a 12 month grace period for both Agents & Landlords to comply.

A new law that will affect all landlords and letting agents in Wales comes into force from Monday 23 November.

In order to improve letting and management standards, the Welsh Government has introduced ‘Rent Smart Wales’, a new registration and licensing scheme under the Housing (Wales) Act 2014.

Full details for the scheme can be found at https://www.rentsmart.gov.wales/en/

All private landlords who have a rental property in Wales must register under the scheme and all landlords and letting agents that carry out defined letting or property management activities must become licensed.

This new legislation will see Wales become the first country in the UK where managing landlords and agents are obliged to undertake training to ensure they are aware of their rights and responsibilities.

Landlords and agents will have 12 months to comply with the licensing scheme requirements with the initial focus on raising awareness and encouraging compliance.
