Scottish Government raises awareness of private rented tenancy reform

The Scottish Government continues to work with a range of stakeholders in order to raise awareness of the new rights and responsibilities introduced by the Private Residential Tenancy.  Most recently the Government has:

  •  undertaken a social media campaign and developed a website of private renting resources, in partnership with Young Scot, specifically targeted at young renters aged 16-24; and
  • The Scottish Government issued a comprehensive summary of renter’s new rights and responsibilities via mydeposits Scotland and the other two tenancy deposit schemes, reaching a potential target audience of just under 65,000 landlords, around 4,000 letting agents and all their respective tenants.
