Rent Smart Wales

The Scheme

Rent Smart Wales was introduced on the 23rd November 2015. The concept being to have a central register of all landlords and agents in Wales and grant licences to landlords and agents who are required to comply with the Housing (Wales) Act 2014. It is broken into two distinct categories.

1. Registration

All landlords' who rent out a property in Wales MUST register, even if you employ a managing agent to manage the property for you.

  • The first step is for landlords' to register their details on the Rent Smart Wales website
  • Pay the online registration fee of £33.50
  • Keep your details updated and add any newly purchased properties within 28 days of completion
  • Re-register every 5 years

2. Licensing

If you undertake any part of the day to day management of your property you will need to apply for a licence.

To get a license you will need to:

  • Complete an application form on the Rent Smart Wales website
  • Pay the appropriate fee (£144 if completed online, £186 if completed by paper application)
  • Complete approved training
  • Renew the licence every 5 years
