6. Legal Aid Impact Test
Private landlords will aim to gain the co-operation of tenants before any required works are undertaken. It is considered unlikely that there will be a significant increase in tenants raising complaints and therefore it is unlikely there will be any significant impact on the legal aid fund. If tenants have reason to be unhappy with their landlord, the normal route of complaint is through the First-tier Tribunal for Scotland (Housing and Property Chamber). This would continue to be the case.
