Annex A - Trends in the Size of the Private Rented Sector in Scotland

The private rented sector in Scotland has more than doubled in size since 1999, and now accounts for more than a seventh of all homes in Scotland[9].

Chart A1 below shows the numbers of dwellings in Scotland by tenure since 1981. The number of private rented properties (including those living rent-free) has increased over the last ten years from an estimated 224,000 in 2006 to 393,000 in 2017. During this time period, the number of owner occupied properties rose from 1.49 million in 2006 to 1.52 million in 2009, before falling back to 1.46 million in 2013 then rising slightly to 1.50 million in 2017[10].
