The law in Wales now requires private landlords to register themselves and their properties with Rent Smart Wales.

Rent Smart Wales is a landmark scheme that will drive up standards in the private rented sector by requiring managing landlords and agents to register, undertake training and apply for a licence to ensure they understand their responsibilities.

It will help prevent the involvement of rogue, and even criminal, landlords and agents in the management and letting of properties. The scheme will help to protect tenants and will support good landlords and agents by helping them keep abreast of their responsibilities and legal obligations, raising the reputation of the sector.

The deadline for registration is 23 November, 2016.                 www.rentsmart.gov.wales

  1. Landlords must now be registered and deemed fit and proper by Rent Smart Wales to be able to rent out their property. They must also provide the address and details of each rental property for which they are the landlord. There is also a fee to pay.
  2. During registration the landlord must state who undertakes the letting and management at each rental property. It is that person who will need a licence from Rent Smart Wales.
  3. If a landlord or agent cannot obtain a licence, or due to non-compliance the licence is removed, they are unable to undertake the letting and management of rental properties in Wales.
  4. If you are a landlord and would like us to manage your property, then please get in touch. As we are Fully Licenced, we can take the financial burden away and offer first rate management over your property.
