Edinburgh HMO consultation

The City of Edinburgh has launched a public consultation on the terms of a proposed best practice guide for HMO licence holders and agents. Failure to follow the best practice guide may be relevant to the council’s consideration of whether a landlord or agent is a fit and proper person to operate an HMO.

The wording of the proposed guide can be found online here. The consultation closes on 10 August 2023.

Please do share your response with SAL so that we can gauge members’ views on this.
