New Periodic Occupation Contract (Wales) & Updated Checklist

February 2024

Last month saw the introduction of a new fixed term written statement for use in Wales. This month a new periodic written statement for use in residential letting in Wales is available. The new template is intended to be more suitable for use by landlords and includes additional provisions not included within the Model Periodic Written Statement produced by the Welsh Government.

Where a fundamental or supplementary term of the Model Written Statement has been omitted or changed, these are identified within this template as follows:

  • Omissions of text have been struck through
  • New text is shown in CAPITALS
  • New additional provisions are identified with an (A) 

Contract-holders need to know if there are differences from the Model Written Statements and what those differences are. It is important therefore that the changes in this contract remain in the text of the final version issued to contract-holders to be in compliance with the Act.

As always, you should seek legal advice if you are not sure whether this template will meet your needs or if you need help to edit or add to them to meet your particular needs.

The Occupation Contract Checklist has been updated to include links to the new fixed term and periodic occupation contract templates. You are advised to download the latest version for use.
