In 2016, the Housing (Wales) Act 2014 introduced legal obligations for landlords who have rental properties 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. Registration is through Rent Smart Wales
Landlords who undertake letting and management tasks at their rental properties in Wales are required to apply for a licence.
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.
