Note added 26.01.16: The Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016 is intended to reform the legal basis for renting homes in Wales and will replace ASTs by a new standard contract (modelled on ASTs). The Act received Royal Assent on 18 January 2016 and the main provisions will come into force on a date to be appointed by statutory instrument.
