Mandatory registration scheme for all private landlords in Wales

Thu 21 May 2015

Lettings legal update

The Housing (Wales) Act 2014 was passed by the National Assembly for Wales in July 2014 and received Royal Assent on 17 September 2014. Part 1 of the Act will introduce a mandatory registration scheme for all private landlords in Wales and there will also be a requirement for private landlords and lettings agents to be licensed if they let or manage properties. This legislation is scheduled to be implemented towards the latter part of this year.

Many of our landlords have been in touch with us to ask what the main elements of this new legislation are, and how it will work in practice so we hope that this article will be helpful as a starting point.

Moginie James has a dedicated team of staff who will register all of your properties on your behalf to help you with a smooth transition into the licencing and registration process – unless when the Act is finally implemented, it contains a provision that prevents this, although we are not currently aware of the existence of any such clause.

At all times, we remain committed to providing all of our new and existing customers with an exceptional level of customer service. Please visit our website www.moginiejames.co.uk and sign up to our regular newsletter to ensure that you don’t miss out on our regular updates!

I am always available if anybody would like to email me directly on martine@moginiejames.co.uk or phone 02920 344 434, if you have any concerns or any further queries in relation about the new legislation being introduced, or about any aspect of letting, whether you are a landlord or tenant…
