Rent Smart Wales landlords licensing system launches

A licensing scheme for landlords is being launched to "improve the image" of the private rented sector.

Landlords have 12 months to register on Rent Smart Wales and decide whether to apply for a licence or hand over management of their properties.

Communities Minister Lesley Griffiths said it would help tackle bad landlords who give the sector a bad name.

But the Residential Landlords Association said it would "do little" to address criminal landlords.

Jordan Davies reports.
