Rent Smart Wales
If you have a property in Wales that you let out you must now register with Rent Smart Wales, Landlord Licencing scheme.
Since 23 November 2015, all landlords operating in Wales must become registered. Landlords have a year to comply with this new obligation.
Does this apply to me?
- Do you own a property in Wales that you don't live in?
- Do you allow someone else to live in that property (as their main residence), and do they pay you money to live there?
- Is the property rented on an assured, assured shorthold or regulated tenancy?
- If you answer yes to these questions you are a landlord and need to comply with the registration requirements in Wales.
Any landlord who has a rental property in Wales which is rented on an assured, assured shorthold or regulated tenancy is required to register. Depending on how a property is owned will determine who needs to register it. All registrations are done with Rent Smart Wales.
Landlords who are not involved in setting up tenancies and managing their rental properties do not need a licence; however they must use a licensed agent and register as a landlord declaring their agent on the registration. Landlords who do undertake letting and management tasks at their rental properties in Wales are required to apply for a licence. Such landlords are often described as 'self-managing'.
