Renting – your rights and responsibilities
If you rent your home or are a leaseholder, you will have a legal agreement with the landlord or freeholder which sets out your rights and responsibilities. This agreement may be in writing or be verbal.
Your tenancy agreement will tell you the type of tenancy you have. Different types of tenancy give you very different rights and responsibilities. These pages will help you find out what they are.
Shelter Cymru does not give advice to leaseholders. If you are a leaseholder and are unsure of your rights, go to the Leasehold Advisory Service (LEASE) website for information and advice.
Private tenants can have several different types of tenancy. Some of these give you more rights than others.
This section explains the rights you have if you are an assured tenant with a private landlord.
This page helps you work out what kind of tenancy you may have if you rent a mobile home from a landlord
