Rent Smart Wales is the new body that administers the requirements for landlord registration and agent and landlord licensing under the Housing (Wales) Act 2014. It is interesting to see this case, the first of its type. I suspect there will be many more to come. If you are a landlord for a property in Wales please be aware that the enforcement powers are now active. This means that failure to comply with the legislation is an offence. Double check that you are complying with the new Rent Smart regulations.
