Scottish Government produce COVID-19 FAQs

Tuesday 24 March 2020

Propertymark worked with the Scottish Government to compile FAQs for landlords and letting agents in these exceptional circumstances.

Working in partnership with the Scottish Association of Landlords and the Council of Letting Agents, the aim is to provide reassurance and specific guidance on the main questions and concerns of the private rented sector.  

Given the fast-changing and unpredictable nature of the situation, it is anticipated that further information and guidance will be issued in due course. 

Propertymark will continue to work with Government to help address any issues the sector faces in the future and will keep members updated when further information is available.
