Tenant Information Pack (Revised December 2016)

Tenant Information Pack (Revised December 2016)

Thursday, December 1, 2016

ISBN: 9781786526113

The Tenant Information Pack gives information to tenants in privately rented housing.

Executive Summary

The Tenant Information Pack gives information to tenants in privately rented housing. It talks about your home, tenancy and landlord, and the responsibilities of you and your landlord.

The pack is not part of your tenancy agreement but sets out important information that is relevant to you and your landlord. The pack contains a summary of legislation relevant to private tenants.

The pack has been updated to take account of recent legislative changes arising from the Tribunals (Scotland) Act 2014. These changes mean that from 1 December 2016, the functions of the Private Rented Housing Panel will now be carried out by the Housing and Property Chamber of the First Tier Tribunal.
