Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016

Section 86 – Landlord’s consent: timing

254.This section relates to the timing of consent. In circumstances where a contract-holder requires the landlord’s consent to do something, for example, to make alterations to the property, the consent can be given retrospectively by the landlord. However, this does not apply to adding additional contract-holders to the contract, nor to transferring the contract to another person (or to a transferral of a joint contract-holder’s rights and obligations under the contract).
