Training course for local landlords

Gwynedd and Anglesey landlords are being invited to a training course in Bangor next week.

The Rent Smart Wales session will provide a comprehensive guide for landlords and letting agents renting out properties across the region – as well as an overview of what is expected of them.

Since last November, all privately rented properties in Wales must be registered. It’s also now compulsory for all landlords and letting agents to register and apply for a licence.

Rent Smart Wales say over 2,200 landlords in Gwynedd have registered for licences so far – but anyone operating without one could face fines of £150 – £250 or prosecution.

Gwynedd county councillor Craig ab Iago said: ”The purpose of the new arrangements that have been in place since last year is to make sure that rent accommodation is safe, well managed and acceptable and that tenants are protected. If you’re a landlord here in Gwynedd, this session provided by Rent Smart Wales experts will provide you with information on a wide-range of relevant matters that will help you in your role.”

The course takes place at Bangor University’s management centre on Tuesday 3rd October. To book a place or for more information, visit www.rentsmart.gov.wales or call 03000 133 344.
