Title of Policy:

Part 4 - Housing (Scotland) Bill - Converting tenancies made under the Housing (Scotland) Act 1988

Summary of aims and desired outcomes of Policy:

Scottish Ministers propose to create a regulation making power which would enable a date to be set on which tenancies under the 1988 Act would convert to PRT under the 2016 Act. If used, this would enable tenants with tenancies under the 1988 Act to benefit from the protections under the 2016 Act, as well as proposed protections in the Housing Bill, and reduce complexity and confusion in the sector.
