Act to Tie Welsh Landlords In for Longer

24/02/2020

Proposed changes by the Welsh Government will double the length of time before a landlord can obtain possession at the beginning of a periodic standard contract from six months to one year; providing the tenant does not breach the terms of the contract.

Currently in Wales a landlord cannot obtain possession, again assuming no breach, until two months after giving notice which, in turn cannot be served within the first four months – equating to a total of six months.

However, the Bill currently being considered to amend the Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016, which has not yet been implemented, would extend both those periods: Namely the landlord will be required to give at least six months’ notice and this cannot be served until six months after contract commencement, meaning a total of twelve months – double the current minimum contract length.

After the initial period the Bill proposes Landlords wanting mandatory possession will be required to serve six months’ notice rather than the current two months. The Renting Homes (Amendment) (Wales) Bill is currently going through evidence sessions and should the Bill be passed it is anticipated to come into force in Spring 2021.
