As from a day to be appointed1, the Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016 provides for most tenancies and licences that confer the right to occupy a dwelling as a home (regardless of the legal basis of that right)2 to be an 'occupation contract'3, which must be one of two kinds:
(1) a 'secure contract', which is always a periodic contract4; or
(2) a 'standard contract5', which itself has two types:
(a) a fixed-term standard contract6, and
(b) a periodic standard contract7.
The two kinds of standard contract differ in relation to their variation, transfer and termination8.
