Under the Housing (Wales) Act 2014, there are new legal obligations on landlords who have rental property in Wales. Rent Smart is a way for private landlords to register and become fully licensed. Any landlord who has a rental property in Wales which is rented on an assured, assured shorthold or regulated tenancy is now required by law to register with Rent Smart Wales. Visit
