2. Suspensions Policies

2.1 Many social landlords in Scotland operate a suspensions policy alongside or as part of their allocations policy. A suspensions policy sets out the circumstances in which a social landlord may regard a tenant as being ineligible to receive an offer of housing. Social landlords’ existing suspensions policies do not have a statutory basis but the law does not prevent landlords from having them.
