You can register on the Rent Smart Wales website (www.rentsmart.gov.wales) and there is also a helpline on 03000 133344

We are awaiting recognition to provide the required training to landlords and agents and expect this by the end of February, when we should also be clear on the status of those already having completed training with us.

We will inform members in good time to ensure no-one is caught out by the changes.
