Better protection for private tenants promised

The Scottish Government has promised better protection and improved services for more than 270,000 private sector tenants.

A consultation launched by housing minister Keith Brown yesterday will help deal with rogue landlords by creating a simpler regulatory system and taking enforcement action on landlords who give tenants a poor deal, cause safety and management concerns and ‘tarnish the image of the sector’.

It also suggests increased partnership working between a range of public services such as housing, social work, education and police to identify and prosecute exploitative and unprofessional landlords.

The consultation contains proposals to help landlords and communities deal with tenants who engaged in anti-social behaviour.
