Landlord & tenant solicitors Swansea

We can advise both landlords and tenants / contract holders, please get in touch if you require advice.

The law in this area can be difficult to navigate given the numerous acts of parliament which govern the relationship between landlord and tenant, or landlord and contract-holder since the overhaul of the previous law in Wales due to the implementation of the Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016.

It is just as important for landlords to be aware of the statutory requirements as they pertain to matters such as the condition of the property, the deposit and notice periods.

A mistake made early in the relationship can be fatal when trying to re-gain possession of the property.

It is also important for tenants to be aware of their rights and remedies where there has been either a breach of the tenancy agreement / occupation contract or the Landlord has not acted in accordance with the relevant legislation.

Frequently Asked Questions:

A Tenancy Agreement is a legally-binding contract between the landlord and tenant, detailing the requirements and obligations expected of both parties. 

If you feel your landlord has not kept the property in a fit state of repair, despite contacting them to resolve the situation – it is advisable to contact us for confidential guidance.

Landlords may need to access the property to carry out general repairs or a property inspection. But before doing so, they need provide the tenant with 24 hours’ written notice of their visit.

You can actually refuse access and prevent the landlord from entering if there hasn’t been prior warning.

The only exception is in the event of an emergency. 

For a rolling week-by-week or month-by-month basis you can’t normally increase the rent more than once a year, unless you seek the tenant’s agreement. For a fixed-term tenancy (running for a set period of time) you can only increase the rent if the tenant agrees.

If your tenant refuses to leave the property then legal action will be necessary.

Contact us for further advice. 

If the tenant causes damage to the rental property, either the tenant pays to fix the damage, or the cost for fixing the damage is deducted from the tenant’s deposit at the end of the tenancy.

However, wear and tear should be allowed for.
