Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service enforces general fire safety legislation on behalf of the Mid and West Wales Fire Authority. 

The legislation the Authority enforces includes:

Landlords and agents are now required by law to be registered or licenced. A new law -The Housing (Wales) Act 2014 - has been introduced in Wales which applies to all landlords and agents of private residential property. If you own, rent out, manage and/or live in a rented property then this law will impact on you.

  • Do you own a residential property that you don’t live in?
  • Do you let someone else live in it?
  • Do you receive money for them living there?

Registration is quick and easy. It can be done online at www.rentsmart.gov.wales or by phoning 0300 0133 344 to request a paper form.

If the answer is YES to any of the following questions you will need to apply for a licence:

  • Are you a landlord who self-manages your property?
  • Are you an agent who lets and manages properties on behalf of landlords?
  • Are you a friend, family member, or associate of a landlord who looks after their property for them?

You can apply for a licence online at www.rentsmart.gov.wales or you can phone 0300 0133 344.
