Sources of advice and support
A short video on the new private residential tenancy
- The Scottish Government has worked with Young Scot, a youth information and citizenship charity, to produce the ‘New Digs’ microsite, with information for young people aged 11 – 26 on private renting in Scotland and the PRT.
- Free training courses for tenants and practitioners:
If you are unsure of your rights and responsibilities as a tenant you should get advice as quickly as possible. You may be able to get this from an organisation which gives advice on housing matters such as your local council, Shelter Scotland, your local Citizens Advice Bureau, or from a solicitor (you may get legal aid depending on your income).
