Call for evidence on tenancies

The Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee of the Scottish Parliament has issued a call for written evidence as it prepares to scrutinise the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Bill.

The aim of the Bill is to replace the Short Assured Tenancy and Assured Tenancy by introducing a new single tenancy for the private rented sector which the Scottish Government considers will improve security of tenure for tenants and provide appropriate safeguards for landlords, lenders and investors.

The Bill also intends to provide tenants with protection against excessive rent increases and provide rent predictability, including the ability for Ministers to introduce caps on rent increases for sitting tenants in Rent Pressure Zones.

The Committee expects to consider written submissions and to take oral evidence between October 2015 and December 2015 before reporting on the Bill’s general principles in early to mid-January 2016.

The formal call for evidence can be found here.
