The Scottish Government have issued a second consultation paper which builds on the proposals outlined in the first Consultation on a New Tenancy for the Private Sector, held in late 2014.
It takes account of the feedback and analysis from the first consultation and addresses the key issues raised. It also seeks views on these more-developed proposals.
The analysis from the first consultation may be found via following link:
No longer open for consultation is the removal of the “no-fault” repossession right and monthly roll-over, with longer periods of notice all of which have to be referred to a Tribunal.
There are a number of other key changes in the proposals and I encourage all landlords with properties in Scotland to review and respond. This is critically important as the analysis of the feedback from the first consultation was heavily influenced by campaign response, which far outweighed the responses from organisations and individuals.
Property118 recommends all landlords who own property in Scotland and all agents who manage properties in Scotland to join the Scottish Association of Landlords. In our opinion there isn’t a more cost effective way to stay abreast of regulation and to obtain professional advice.
