Consultation on Licensing of Short Term Lets

The Scottish Government have launched a consultation on the licensing of short term lets:

The Scottish Government’s proposals include a mandatory licensing scheme to ensure that all short-term lets are safe and to address issues faced by neighbours.

The regulations, if passed by Parliament, would come into force by April 2021. These would also give councils powers to manage pressures created by the use of whole properties as short-term lets.

The consultation is open until 16th October, and the consultation paper can be found here:
