In recent years, the private rented sector in Scotland has expanded rapidly. At the same time, the law and practice of residential tenancies has undergone significant changes. From the introduction of the new Private Rented Tenancy (PRT), to the creation of the Housing and Property Chamber within the First-Tier Tribunal, and the new changes taking place in 2019, there are many practical aspects that practitioners and their clients need to be aware of.
