The Rent Smart Wales registration and licensing scheme prevents rogue landlords and agents from letting and managing properties in Wales.
It also raises the awareness of landlords, agents and tenants of their respective rights and responsibilities.
Rent Smart Wales process landlord registrations and grant licences to landlords and agents who need to comply with the Housing (Wales) Act 2014. The legislation made provision for those who needed to comply to do so within a year, without fear of repercussion.
The enforcement powers are now active. This means that failure to comply with the legislation is an offence. If you have not yet complied; visit the Rent Smart Wales website to find out what to do.
For more information please go to the Rent Smart website or telephone Rent Smart Wales on 03000 133344.
