Rent Smart Wales and Licensing of Welsh Landlords www.rentsmart.gov.wales

The Housing Act 2014 came into force on the 23rd November 2015 introducing a new law to raise standards in Lettings and ensure that individuals looking after domestic tenancies throughtout Wales on a day to day basis are fit to do so having received training in their obilgations. Cardiff County Council will be the single licensing authority for the whole of Wales. All landlords must register with RENT SMART WALES and self managing landlords will be breaking the law after the 23rd November 2016 unless they have conducted training and gained a license OR they have contracted a licensed agent to fully manage the property on a daily basis.

We are here to help and we are flexible in the way we do business. We understand that you lead a busy life and aim to give our Landlords peace of mind that we are there every step of the way of the renting process. Promoting your property in our branches and advertising on the internet on Zoopla and our website and our social media pages on Facebook and Twitter, your tenant is merely a telephone call or email away.

 

Landlord's have legal duties that include protecting and registering the Tenant's Deposit,  providing an EPC, whilst at the same time ensuring that the accommodation complies with Health and Safety requirements so that potential fines, prosecution and even the inability to evict tenants can be avoided. We aim to find quality tenants whilst ensuiring that a proper tenancy agreement is in place to provide you with adequate legal protection.

 

We complete training courses annually with our regulated bodies so that we can aim to deliver a quality modern yet personal service offering you professional advice,  by keeping abreast of latest legal requirements and explaining the jargon in plain simple terms. We can offer a range of tailor made packages to meet your needs, whether you are a first time or established Landlord, whilst our Residential Sales Department can help you find the right property to ensure maximum return on your investment purchase.
