Renting Homes Wales Act

Countdown to

Renting Homes (Wales) Act



The way that landlords own and manage private rented sector (PRS) properties in Wales is changing after Welsh Government used its devolved powers to pass and implement the Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016. This will take effect on 1st December 2022 and makes major changes to the PRS in Wales.

Here at the National Residential Landlords Association we have all the help, support, and guidance that you need to ensure that you adhere to all new legislation, from referring to your tenants as contract holders, tenancy agreements as occupation contracts with “written statements”, providing you with checklists to ensure that your property is classed as Fit For Human Habitation to providing you with model occupation contracts, the NRLA is here to help you through the largest change to the Private Rental Sector in generations.

Many aspects of legislation you currently operate under are changing drastically, from extended no-fault notice periods, extended succession rights, joint contracts, and changes to your rights around abandoned properties, we are now seeing a large-scale change to the entire property rental market.

The NRLA is here to support, inform and train you through these changes, ensuring that you are fully prepared and fully compliant with your new obligations.
