The new legislation relating to private rentals includes a section that allows councils the right to apply for permission to impliment a 'rent pressure zone'. No council, to my knowledge, has done this so far. Edinburgh Council, I believe, has talked about it but nothing more - so far.
How would these proposed rent control laws fit in with the current 'rent pressure zone' laws?
I'm no expert on this so anyone who does know the facts - would love to hear from you.
Any views on the current 'rent pressure zone' legislation and how it might effect the prs if it was to be implimented.... Read More
In reply to Jireh,
The owners of the flat I mentioned are a company who happen to operate out of the same building as the Letting Agents!! If as a private individual can see what's going on how come the council can't. As I have said, the legislation is there but to no real effect. If the legislation is not being enforced what is the point of it? And as Chris says 'what is the revenue being used for'.
