The article was written by the Housing Minister Lesley Griffiths on Monday 23 November 2015.

The article includes the following information for Landlords:

  • all private landlords will be required to register with Rent Smart Wales. They will also have to register their properties
  • if a landlord wants to manage the property themselves, they must demonstrate they are ‘fit and proper’ to hold a licence, and then undertake, and pass, approved training
  • alternatively, they will be able to appoint a licensed agent to manage the property on their behalf.

Landlords and agents have one year to comply with their new legal obligations, without fear of legal action.
