From 30th April 2006, all private landlords letting properties in Scotland must have applied for registration in the Register of Landlords. Registration will ensure that all private landlords in Scotland are 'fit and proper' to be letting residential property and this measure will protect tenants and their neighbours from the impact of antisocial behaviour and mismanaged property. All private landlords letting residential property in Scotland, must register. In addition, if you are just entering the market, you should register before starting to let your property.
