The Welsh Government is changing the law around how tenants rent their homes in Wales. This includes private and social letting landlords throughout the country. 

This happens on the 1st December 2022. 

Your Tenancy Agreement will automatically swap over to an Occupation Contract and you will receive a copy of this for your records. 

The changes have no effect on your rent and will not cost you any more money. 

The changes mean: 

  • More succession rights to pass on your home 
  • All properties must be safe and habitable 
  • Landlords must give tenants 2 months notice of any rent increases 
  • Landlords will be able to repossess abandoned properties without a court order, providing investigations have taken place.

If you have any questions regarding the new Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016,  please contact or call 0300 111 3030
