What landlords need to know about new Welsh housing laws
“The biggest change to housing law in Wales for decades.” – Julie James (Welsh Gov Minister)
Welsh Government have announced that the long-awaited Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016 will finally come into force on 15th July 2022.

Over the course of the next few weeks, we will go into greater detail on each of the Act’s headline changes, which include;
All private rented sector tenancies to be replaced by ‘occupation contracts’, where tenants become ‘contract-holders’. These contracts must include specifically-worded clauses. Existing tenancies must be converted to occupation contracts within six months.
