Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The Scottish Government has been involved in an almost continuous process of updating and amending the private rented sector in the 21st century. Various significant changes were introduced including, in 2004, the compulsory registration of private landlords along with providing free access to new remedies of those living in unsatisfactory accommodation in 2006 as well as effective recovery rights for those paying deposits in 2012. In addition, from 2009, landlords were required to give their tenants better information about their rights. More broadly, the actual 1988 assured tenancy structure was subject to examination.
