Discussing major tenancy law changes in Wales
Big changes are coming to tenancy law in Wales. The Housing (Wales) Act 2014 is bringing in mandatory registration and accrediation for ALL landlords and letting agents in Wales.
The new laws are expected to come into force later in 2015. Our panel of experts will tell you what the laws are and what you should expect.
This is ESSENTIAL information if you manage rented property in Wales.
Our speakers are all experts - most will be speaking on the new tenancy laws but we have a few other topics as well ...
