David Cox, Chief Executive, ARLA Propertymark responds to the Scottish Governments’ announcement of new measures to regulate short-term lets:
“It’s positive to see that the Scottish Government are taking steps to regulate short term lets. In some urban areas, the supply of local housing is under intense pressure and as the private rental sector becomes increasingly regulated, landlords are moving further towards the less regulated short-term letting space which further reduces this supply.
“This can also result in lower quality accommodation for tenants and overall creates a vastly uneven playing field.”
