Most landlords and tenants have been affected by the changes brought in by the Renting Homes Wales Act 2016. Any new contracts entered into beyond 1st December 2022 are included in the RHWA regime but what about those people who already had a tenancy on that date?

Many people who rent from private and community landlords in Wales will find themselves on a converted contract with different rules applying to them than those who are new contract holders.
This course will identify the crucial differences between the rights and responsibilities of landlords and contract holders who find themselves caught between the two regimes since this new legislation came into force.

Course includes:
• Secure converted contracts
• Standard converted contracts
• Which parts of RHWA will apply to converted contracts
• How will converted contracts operate and how do they become new contracts
• Ending converted contracts

This course is for:
Anyone advising renters with active tenancy agreements on the day of conversion (1st December 2022), support workers, advice agencies, local authority housing options officers, housing association and local authority housing officers, advisers.
