Parliament seeks views on Housing Bill

As we reported recently the government has published a Housing Bill to progress plans originally set out in its New Deal for Tenants consultation in 2021. For a summary of the proposals set out in the Bill see our news article here.

The Scottish Parliament has now published a consultation to seek views on the provisions in the Bill. The consultation questions can be read and responded to by clicking on the link below:

Housing (Scotland) Bill Call for Views – Scottish Parliament – Citizen Space

It is not necessary to answer all the questions if you prefer not to. The questions most relevant to the private rented sector are numbers 1-8. There is no question directly about the proposal to convert assured/short assured tenancies into PRTs – views on this proposal can be given in your answer to question 15. The call for views closes on 17 May 2024.

If you do choose to respond please send SAL a copy of your response as this will help us gauge members’ views to inform SAL’s response to the call for views.
