Changes to Private Residential Lettings in Wales

Renting Homes Wales

The Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016 (‘the Act’) will fundamentally change the current system for letting residential dwellings in Wales when it comes into force on 15 July 2022.

Whilst the Act is not yet in force, a set of guidance notes has been produced. The guidance notes will be useful to private landlords and letting agents, in Wales, navigating their way through and preparing for these changes.

Also included are the model written statements for a periodic standard occupation and a fixed term standard occupation, published by the Welsh Government. These should be read alongside the Guidance on Standard Occupation Contracts for use by private landlords and letting agents in Wales, which has further information on occupation contracts, how the model written statements are to be used and when a written statement is to be provided to avoid being in breach of the Act.

Further documents will be added to this group in the run up to the Act’s commencement. Further templates and guidance will also be added once the Act is in force.

The documents will be kept under review and updated in line with any supplementary legislation or supporting guidance which may be published by the Welsh Government.

These Renting Homes Wales Documents are part of the Property Documents Folder. Just £35.00 + VAT will provide you with 1 year's unlimited access to download all/any documents from the Property Folder.
