ARLA response to Scottish Government's 2nd consultation on a new tenancy for the private sector

Monday 11 May 2015

ARLA's response to the Scottish Government's 2nd consultation on a new tenancy argues that there is no argument for the Scottish Government to impose rent controls

In most areas of Scotland “private rents on average fell in real terms” and in the areas where rents rose above inflation, this was the result of “considerable average income growth”.

ARLA goes on to warn about practical issues relating to implementing repossession on the grounds of overcrowded properties and antisocial behaviour and argues for greater discretion in specific areas.
