Cost of Living (Tenant Protection) (Scotland) Act 2022 - proposed extension of section 10: statement of reasons

We have prepared this Statement of Reasons to set out why the expiry of section 10 (and by virtue of that, schedule 3) of The Cost of Living (Tenant Protection) (Scotland) Act 2022 should be extended.

4. Conclusion

4.1 Without extending section 10 of the 2022 Act beyond 31 March 2024, it would not be possible for the regulation-making powers to be used to support the transition out of the emergency rent cap once Part 1 of the 2022 Act expires. There is therefore an important practical and technical reason for seeking this extension as outlined.

4.2 Scottish Ministers have also carefully considered the wider economic context and feedback from stakeholder engagement, and accordingly – subject to approval by Parliament - have decided that it is necessary that the expiry of Section 10 of the 2022 Act be extended to 31 March 2025.
