I’m planning to start my AirBnb in about a month or so. Does anyone here perhaps live in Wales and know whether I need to comply with the Rent Smart Wales requirements?
Or does short term holiday letting fall outside of that?
Also, I feel very nervous about all the things that could go wrong e.g. problems guests, damage, rowdy groups etc. Does anyone have any advice or tips for me as a newbie?

Watch out how long you rent it out for, this is from www.gov.uk
If your property is in Wales it will be rated as a self-catering property and valued for business rates if it’s both:
available to let for short periods that total 140 days or more per year
