Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016 (RHWA) - Effective from 15 July 2022

The way properties are rented out in Wales will change following the implementation of the Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016.

The purpose of this Act is to replace various complex pieces of legislation with one clear legal framework.

The RHWA is one of the biggest changes to landlord and tenant law in Wales since the Housing Act 1988.

Almost all aspects of renting residential property in Wales will be affected or changed entirely. 

Landlords will now have clear guidelines and model contracts, to assist with the establishment of tenancies and a simpler way of legally accessing an abandoned property. 

Tenants will benefit from extended tenancy periods and should feel more confident approaching their local Council for help with poor property conditions.

If you are a landlord with concerns about these changes in Legislation, please do not hesitate to contact us.
