Landlords' Statutory Obligations

Residential renting is subject to much legislation and, with the Scottish Government taking a regulatory approach to the sector this is increasing steadily.  You should ensure that you comply with all of this as penalties for non-compliance can be draconian.  If you are using a letting agent you should make sure that your agent is keeping you compliant because in the event of a breach it will be you personally who may be held liable.  Simply Let staff participate in continuing professional development to keep abreast of changes in the law and we maintain active links with residential law specialists who can guide and advise where necessary.

The links below provide information on same obligations but this list is by no means exhaustive.
