The Renting Homes White Paper which was the subject of a separate consultation in 2013 proposed replacing what is currently a confusing and complex area of law with a clearer simpler and more straightforward legal framework. The White Paper received strong support and the Renting Homes (Wales) Bill is scheduled to be introduced into the National Assembly in 2015.
For the proposed legal framework to be most effective it is important that the new rental contracts are easy to understand and use. This will help landlords and tenants agree rental arrangements at the outset and also avoid disputes later on. This consultation sets out what the new contracts under Renting Homes could look like together with examples of the sort of supporting guidance that may be required.
