TPO Scotland officially launched
To officially mark the launch of TPO Scotland, The Property Ombudsman (TPO) scheme has unveiled two new versions of its Code of Practice for sales and lettings agents operating in Scotland.
Christopher Hamer, the Property Ombudsman said: “TPO Scotland is an independent scheme and has been launched to ensure industry best practice through its new and approved Codes of Practice. Members of TPO Scotland must adhere to the Codes, while their customers have access to a robust dispute resolution process if things go wrong. …There is a drive to set standards in progress through the Scottish Government with a consultation recently launched which will see a major overhaul of legislation in the Private Rented Sector. The industry itself sees the value of regulation and both our Codes have been created to go hand in hand with recent improvements and the changing nature of the Private Rented Sector.”
