Ceredigion County Council completed its one month long RentSmart Wales Roadshow yesterday at an event in Lampeter, South West Wales, designed to offer landlords in Wales advice and help with new rental rules.
The ‘drop-in’ sessions were held during June and July to give landlords in Wales the opportunity to learn more about the new registration and licensing requirements of the Rent Smart Wales legislation.
Landlords were given an opportunity to speak to council staff face to face and learn more about the new requirements. It was also an opportunity to be introduced to the online registration/licensing process.
Under the Housing (Wales) Act 2014, there are new legal obligations on landlords, as well as managing agents, who have rental property in Wales.
The changes to housing legislation were recently introduced by the Welsh government and will affect all persons involved in the private renting of residential accommodation. It is now a legal requirement for all landlords to register and for self-managing landlords and agents to be licensed and suitably trained.
