An Evaluation of Rent Regulation Measures within Scotland’s Private Rented Sector

By: Shelter Scotland  Published: June 2018

This report was commissioned by Shelter Scotland as part of our programme of work engaging private renters in policy and practice change, funded by the Oak Foundation. The aim of the report is to better understand the rent regulation measures contained in the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016 and consider what successful policy implementation might look like. The report also places the Scottish reforms in the context of rent control measures from comparable European countries, making practical recommendations aimed at improving the effectiveness of the rent regulation measures contained in the 2016 Act.
