Housing (Wales) Act 2014

Section 2 – Meaning of key terms

3.This section sets out the meaning of key terms used in Part 1 of the Act and makes it clear which type of tenancies are to be covered by the definition of “domestic tenancy”. The section further clarifies that the provisions of this Part apply only to “rental properties” located entirely in Wales.

4.Section 2 also gives the power to Welsh Ministers, by order, to specify other forms of tenancy which are to be included in the definition of “domestic tenancy” and which would therefore become subject to the registration and licensing regime under Part 1.
