Section 9 – Consequential amendments etc.

36.This section gives the Welsh Ministers power to make any supplemental, incidental, consequential, transitory, transitional or saving provision considered necessary or expedient in consequence of, or for the purpose of giving full effect to the provisions of this Act. Regulations made under this section can amend, repeal or revoke provisions made in legislation, including provisions of this Act, and can make amendments that are considered necessary as a result of the Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016 having been brought into force. For example, once the Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016 provisions have been brought into force, certain tenancies will cease to exist in Wales, and references in legislation to secure tenancies, assured tenancies etc. will need to be amended to refer to secure contracts.
