Landlord Licensing


Rent Smart Wales, is  the name for the registration and licensing requirements under Part 1 of the Housing (Wales) Act 2014 has now been launched.

From 23rd November 2015, Landlords and Agents will be able to register their properties and apply for licenses through the Rent Smart Wales website. There will then be a window of 12 months for all Landlords and Agents with property let in Wales to comply with the legislation before action will be taken.

  Rent Smart Wales is to improve the image of the private rented sector, improve the practices of landlords and agents and help to tackle the bad practice in the industry.

It is intended that the legislation will result in:

▪ Improved standards of letting and management practice in the private rented sector
▪ More information on landlords available for tenant verification and for local authorities to assist with strategic intervention and dissemination of information
▪ Raised awareness by landlords and agents of their respective rights and responsibilities and in turn
▪ Raised awareness by tenants of their respective rights and responsibilities

It will be a legal requirement for all Landlords to be registered and those who manage their own properties and Agents who manage on behalf of Landlords need to be licensed.
