The Welsh Government are currently considering changing the law about how and when a landlord can evict a tenant under ‘section 21‘ or ‘no fault’ grounds. The proposal is to extend the minimum notice period for ‘no fault’ grounds from two months to six months, and to stop a landlord from giving such a notice until six months after the contract starts.
In addition, they have already changed the law on letting fees, banning many fees charged by landlords or agents to prospective or current tenants. To find out what you can and cannot now be charged, click here.
It is also likely that new laws will be introduced about the landlord’s responsibilities surrounding electrical safety and the provision of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
