Renting Homes (Amendment) (Wales) Act 2021

Section 6 – Restrictions on giving notice under section 173 or 186 or under a landlord’s break clause: breaches of statutory obligations

31.Section 6(2), (3) and (4) of the Act inserts new sections 176, 186A and 197 into the 2016 Act. These sections each introduce new Schedule 9A to the 2016 Act (which is inserted by Schedule 2 to the Act).

32.New Schedule 9A to the 2016 Act contains certain restrictions on the giving of a notice under section 173, section 186 and a landlord’s break clause. These relate to breaches of statutory obligations.

33.Section 6(5) of the Act amends the 2019 Act. It inserts a new section 20 into the 2019 Act, which refers to new Schedule 9A to the 2016 Act. It also removes Schedule 3 to the 2019 Act from the 2019 Act itself. This is because Schedule 3 to the 2019 Act made amendments to the 2016 Act that are now replicated in new Schedule 9A or are no longer relevant to the 2016 Act.

34.Section 6(6) of the Act introduces Schedule 2 to the Act, which inserts new Schedule 9A into the 2016 Act.
