Rent Smart Wales
What is Rent Smart Wales?
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.

All landlords must register
If you manage your property yourself you will be required to be licensed. However, if you use an agent such as Aktons Estate Agents you will not need to be licensed but will need to register with them as a Landlord.
