Part 7: Final Provisions

Section 25 - Power to make transitional provision in respect of assured tenancies

109.Section 25 provides that regulations made by the Welsh Ministers may make provision for the Act to apply in relation to an assured tenancy (including an assured shorthold tenancy) under the Housing Act 1988.

110.The 2016 Act – in section 239 – provides for the abolition of assured tenancies in relation to any dwellings to which the Act applies (the meaning of “dwelling” in this context is provided by section 246 of the 2016 Act). The main provisions of the 2016 Act were not in force when this Act gained Royal Assent.

111.Regulations under this section would allow provision to be made to apply the Act to assured shorthold tenancies under the 1988 Act, until the abolition of assured tenancies under the 2016 Act.
