Renting Homes Bill to tackle rogue landlords

Rogue landlords will be tackled by a new law to make renting a home simpler, the Welsh government has said.

Landlords who fail to maintain their properties will no longer be able to evict tenants who complain, and domestic abusers can be evicted without making the rest of the family homeless.

Communities Minister Lesley Griffiths said the Renting Homes Bill would make renting "clearer and easier for all".

But some charities fear it will end the six month protection for new tenants.
