RLA Cymru is proud to be sponsoring the inaugural Landlord and Lettings show in Wales. Now is a more important time than ever for Welsh landlords and Letting Agents to come together and make sure that their voices are heard as the Housing (Wales) Bill continues to have massive implications for the Private Rented Sector (PRS) in Wales.
The event takes place on the 2nd and 3rd of July and the RLA will be out in full force offering a host of seminars and RLA Cymru director Douglas Haig and fan favourites Dave Absalom, head of the RLA’s Landlord Advice Team (LAT) and Douglas Hall of RLA mortgages will be delivering talks.

RLA Cymru are campaigning and lobbying the Welsh Government to ensure that the private rented sector isn’t at risk of being over burdened with unnecessary and over complicated regulation as a result of the Bill. RLA Cymru has provided evidence to the Welsh Government on behalf of landlords to warn that proposals in the Housing Bill such as the registration and licensing of ALL landlords will critically damage the PRS in Wales.
On a local level we are also working hard responding to local consultations in Cardiff where the Council is considering introducing Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) to restrict the number of HMO’s and flat conversions in Cardiff and additional licensing for Plasnewydd and Gabalfa.
In addition to the Housing (Wales) Bill, the Renting Homes (Wales) Bill is also scheduled for introduction in 2015 with additional changes for PRS landlords. The RLA is therefore urging all landlords to come along to this important event to ensure that from 2015 you are not caught out. RLA Cyrmu Director, Douglas Haig, said,
“At a time of considerable change in housing, particularly the private rented sector, RLA Cymru has consistently provided a strong voice for landlords that will directly influence legislation. However, to continue to succeed influencing policy at this level we need the continued support from landlords across Wales”
