The Housing (Wales) Act 2014 will require all landlords with a property in Wales to be registered and all self managing landlords or letting / managing agents to be licensed.

A new consultation has been published (or this link for Welsh version) to seek views on the intention to appoint a single licensing authority for Wales, and for the authority to be Cardiff Council. It also seeks views on the intention for the licensing authority to specify the core syllabus for courses for landlords and agents, and for the licensing authority to authorise providers to deliver such training courses.

Responses are being sought by 6 February 2015.
