A new code of practice for letting agents in Scotland

Posted on July 29, 2019 at 3:10 PM


Hi there,

Did you know that as of the 31st of January 2019 any person working for or as a letting agent must adhere to the Letting Agent Code of Practice?

The code practice should help landlords and tenants understand what they should expect if they rent their property through a letting agent.

The good news is that we have sat and passed all our exams and are complying with the current legislation.

Should you wish to find out more about the new code of practice please give me a call on 0141 370 7050.

Robert Ross.
