The Scottish Government has introduced a new mandatory licensing scheme for Short-term Lets (STL) in Scotland that is due to open for application, to new hosts on 1 October 2022. Information on the timescales for all existing hosts can be viewed via the Scottish Government webpage link below.

As part of the licensing scheme, the council must publish a licensing policy (Dundee City Council – Short-term Lets Licensing Policy Statement; Guidance Notes and Standards for Accommodation), accessed below.

The Guidance Notes and Standards include mandatory safety requirements, which will cover every type of short term let and a range of additional conditions relevant to short term let property in Dundee.
