Rent Smart Wales

By law all landlords and letting agencies in Wales must register with Rent Smart Wales. Lettings agencies and individual landlords who manage their own properties also need a licence from Rent Smart Wales before they can rent out their property. If you are not sure whether or not a landlord or letting agency is licenced and your property is registered you can check here - Welcome to Rent Smart Wales - Rent Smart Wales (


If the landlord or agent is not registered or licenced to rent out your property you need to let Rent Smart  Wales know. If you are served notice by a landlord or agent that is not licenced or registered then the notice will be classed as invalid.
