The assessment considers the impact of the introduction of regulations to enable local authority applications to the Private Rented Housing Panel to enforce the repairing standard.

Executive Summary

Provisions in the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 enable local authorities to apply to the Private Rented Housing Panel to enforce the repairing standard.

The BRIA concludes that the regulations will provide local authorities with additional discretionary powers to help tackle the problem of poor property condition in the private rented sector.

The BRIA also considers the potential costs of the policy on key stakeholders.
