Renting Homes (Wales) Act – Standard Contracts in the Private and Social Rented Sectors e-Learning edition (Level 2)
Contract holders within the private rented sector are likely to feel the greatest amount of change from the introduction of the Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016. From increased protection from eviction, additional succession rights, the right to live in accommodation which is fit for human habitation and more clarity in what is to be expected from themselves as contract holders and from their landlord. The basis of these additional protections is the Standard Contract that will apply to most people who are renting in the private rented sector. However, some Community Landlords will also issue alternative forms of standard contract.
This course will provide learners with a deeper understanding of how regular and alternative standard contracts operate across the housing sector.
This course will cover:
• Main provisions of all contracts (Terms and Statutory Obligations)
• Joint contracts (rights to add new contract holder, ending joint contracts)
• Standard contracts in the social sector (Introductory, Prohibited Conduct and Supported Standard Contracts)
• Ending contracts (how contract holders and landlords can end contracts)
This course is essential for:
Anyone supporting or advising occupiers in the social rented and private sectors. Housing association staff, council housing teams, housing options teams, support workers, and advice agencies.
