New Scottish Tenancy

On the 6th October the Scottish Government launched a public consultation on the development of a new type of tenancy for the private rented sector.

The overarching aim of the tenancy is to improve security of tenure for tenants, while providing appropriate safeguards for landlords, lenders and investors.

This consultation seeks your views on the proposed outline of the new tenancy.

The cut-off date for responses is the 28 December 2014.

Your answers will help the Scottish Government shape a new, modernised and simplified tenancy system for the private sector in Scotland.
