This is just a reminder to landlords in Wales, that the upper limit for assured shorthold tenancies will be going up to 100,000 today, 1 December 2011. Here is the statutory instrucment (if you like that sort of thing)
This change happened in England last October and seemed to go through quite smoothly. The significance of the change is that any tenancies with a rent of between £25,000 and £100,000, which previously were common law tenancies, will now automatically become assured shorthold tenancies.
The most immidiate issue will then be the tenancy deposit. I would advise that these be protected with a government authorised tenancy deposit scheme as soon as possible, if you have not done this already.
You will also now need to serve section 21 notices and section 8 notices if you wish to evict your tenant, rather than the notice to quit which is used for common law tenancies.
Have a look also at the post I wrote last year for the English increase (as the same points will arise). You will find it here.
