ISBN: 978-1-78045-790-1

The Scottish Government wants to set out a vision and strategic aims that will grow and improve the quality of the private rented sector (PRS) in Scotland over the next decade. This consultation seeks your views on how we take this important area of work forward.

Executive Summary

This consultation has been produced in partnership with the Scottish Private Rented Sector Strategy Group and the findings from it will inform the final Scottish Government strategy for the sector, which will be published later in 2012. It should be noted that this consultative document

does not necessarily reflect the independent policy positions of the individual members of the Group.

The final strategy for the Private Rented Sector will fit within the context of the Scottish Government's overall Housing Strategy and Action Plan for the next decade - Homes Fit for the 21st Century, published in February 2011.

This paper seeks your views on the proposed content of the final strategy and poses a series of questions on the issues identified by Strategy Group members.

The consultation runs from Tuesday 17 April 2012 to Tuesday 10 July 2012. The views you provide on the questions posed in this consultation document will help to frame future action by the Scottish Government.
