Writing to your Assembly Member

What is the issue?

The RLA exists to represent the interests of our members to Government. We are fighting for a fair deal for the nation’s residential landlords.

We are currently campaigning to ensure landlords can recover their property in a timely manner when they need to.

The Welsh Government recently opened their consultation on restricting the use of Section 173, their upcoming replacement for Section 21. If these proposals are implemented landlords will not be able to apply to court using the notice until at least 12 months have passed from the tenant moving in.

While landlords will still be able to serve a separate notice if the tenant is in rent arrears or breaching the terms of their tenancy agreement our research shows that landlords do not believe the grounds based system is fit for purpose. There are no proposals to improve grounds based possession should Section 173 be restricted.

How do I get involved?

We need your help to raise awareness of the serious impact of these changes for landlords and tenants alike, so please campaign with us and let’s make renting better.

With that in mind the RLA has drafted a letter to be sent to your Assembly Member. Once you have added your own concerns to the letter you should send it to your Assembly Member.

How do I contact my Assembly Member?

Once you have completed your letter you can find the contact details for your Assembly Members from the tables below.
