Carmarthenshire County Council will give guidance on compliance on request.
The Scheme comprises an element of self-regulation and accordingly relies on a degree of goodwill and trust on the parts of landlords, tenants and Carmarthenshire County Council.

Compliance with the Scheme will ensure that: Landlords, tenants and community members enjoy the benefit of good dwelling conditions, competent management and considerate neighbourly behaviour. Misunderstandings and disputes are reduced. Where problems do occur they are promptly resolved.
