A second Coronavirus bill was passed by Scottish Government 20 May 2020 and thanks to lobbying by Scottish Association of Landlords (SAL) proposed amendments to enact a two-year private sector rent freeze; place a two-year ban on tenant evictions for rent arrears.and extinguish rent arrears in cases of extreme hardship as a result of Coronavirus were defeated.
It could easily have caused devastation within the Private Rented Sector so a good news story against the moves by Scottish Labour and the Greens.
Hopefully England and Wales governments do not try something similar.
