Welsh assembly housing legislation consultation - Law Society response

12 September 2016

The Law Society has recommended that the Welsh Assembly investigate the impact of two key pieces of housing legislation introduced in recent years: the Housing (Wales) Act 2014 and the Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016.

Responding to an Assembly consultation earlier this month, the Society outlined its support for an investigation into the impact of the legislation on homelessness and on improving standards of housing through the introduction of mandatory registration for private landlords. The Society also called on the Equalities, Local Government and Communities Committee to investigate delays in the publication of standard and secure model contracts which will form the basis of tenancy agreements in Wales.
