Final Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment relating to the Regulations on a statutory code of practice for letting agents in Scotland.

Executive Summary

The Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 introduces a framework for the regulation of letting agents in Scotland. This includes a statutory code of practice all letting agents must follow.

Once implemented, the Code will help increase the overall standards of service and professionalism within the letting industry and provide customers with an effective way to resolve complaints.

The Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment has considered the expected costs, benefits and impact of the proposed letting agent code of practice of letting agency businesses.
