SFHA responds to SG Consultation - Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016

SFHA have responded to the Scottish Government consultation on the proposals for regulations and policy supporting the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016.

Posted In

25 December might seem like an odd date to close a consultation, but that was the date identified as the closing date for the consultation on the proposals for regulations and policy supporting the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016.

SFHA didn’t quite wait to the last minute to submit a response, but instead chose to send a responsee on the 23 December! You can read the SFHA response here.

The proposals and regulations included in the consultation are of keen interest to housing associations and co-operatives that provide – or are considering providing – mid-market rent homes, as they relate to the new private housing tenancy that the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016 will introduce.

SFHA gathered members’ views through the SFHA Mid-Market Rent Forum in November 2016 and used this to draft a response, which was shared with members for comment. Many thanks for the comments and amendments, particularly from Rural Stirling Housing Association and Link Housing Association.

The next SFHA Mid-Market Rent Forum is on the 8 February 2017 – book your FREE place here.

Get in touch with Zhan McIntyre, SFHA Policy Lead, if you would like added to the SFHA Mid-Market Rent mailing list!
