Scottish Government have published a consultation on both minimum energy standards and standards on homes in the private rented sector (and now including Furnished Holiday Lets and Serviced Apartments).
The aim is to bring the private sector in line with social housing, although some requirements for PRS are much stricter than Social Housing, but excluded from this consultation.
Consultation on Energy Standards appears similar to that applying to England & Wales (but tougher), and that on condition standards has some significant cost implications in order to prove compliance and then implement corrective actions.
All who have an interest in owning or investing in domestic properties in Scotland should review and input to the consultation response.
