Law & Borders: Navigating differences between English and Welsh jurisdictions

With the law between the various UK jurisdictions increasingly diverging, EG has launched a new podcast series – Law & Borders – to unearth some of the key differences that exist when dealing with property on both sides of the border.

In this first episode, EG’s professional & legal editor, Sarah Jackman, is joined by Sian Howes of Hogan Lovells to examine the key differences between residential tenancy law in England and Wales.

They discuss the background to the changes, before looking at three key pieces of Welsh legislation: The Housing Wales Act 2014, The Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016 and The Renting Homes (Fees etc.) (Wales) Act 2019.

Sian highlights the key provisions, how they differ from comparative laws in England and what landlords and managing agents need to be aware of when managing portfolios that span the two jurisdictions.
