Rent Smart Wales – are you complying?

Landlords and agents with properties in any part of Wales are reminded that enforcement powers are now active for Rent Smart Wales.

The Welsh Government scheme, that is helping to raise standards in the private rented sector, requires all private landlords to register themselves and their properties with Rent Smart Wales. Landlords and Agents who let and manage property must also get a licence.

Since November 23, 2016, enforcement powers have been active and landlords and agents who are not complying with the law could face a variety of sanctions including prosecution, fixed penalty notices, rent stopping and rent repayment orders.

Local authorities across Wales, including Bridgend County Borough Council, are working with Rent Smart Wales to identify those still not complying with the law. Councils are now prosecuting those who have failed to comply.

If you are a landlord or agent yet to comply, don’t delay. It’s important that you take the necessary steps now to comply and avoid action.

If you are a tenant and want to check if your landlord and/or agent is complying, you can visit the Rent Smart Wales online public register here: https://www.rentsmart.gov.wales/en/check-register/.

If they are not registered, you can contact us Rent Smart Wales here: https://www.rentsmart.gov.wales/en/contact/
