Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment – Landlord Applications to the Private Rented Housing Panel

Friday, January 15, 2016

ISBN: 9781785449512

The assessment considers the impact of the introduction of regulations to enable landlords to apply to the Private Rented Housing Panel for assistance.

Executive Summary

Provisions in the Housing (Scotland) Act 2006 enable private landlords to apply to the Private Rented Housing Panel for assistance in exercising their legal right of entry to a property in connection with the repairing standard.

The BRIA concludes that the regulations will help landlords to ensure that their properties comply with the repairing standard, in cases where access to a property has been refused.

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