Housing (Scotland) Act 2014

The Association has recently written out to all tenants advising them of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014. As you are aware the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014  introduced changes to help landlords make the best use of their housing stock, whilst at the same time recognising the rights of tenants to pass on their tenancy to others in appropriate circumstances and with the landlord’s consent.

Some parts of the Act require further legislation to be agreed or further guidance from the Scottish Government therefore a timetable for the changes becoming effective has only recently been set.

As previously publicised, the 2014 Act abolished the Right to Buy for all tenants of social housing in Scotland who had a right to buy on 1 August 2016, and the other changes will come into force from May 2019 onwards. All tenants will receive notification in writing of what the changes mean and who to contact with any queries.

Below are some questions which are frequently asked regarding the changes;
  • Do I require to sign a new tenancy agreement?

    There is no requirement for any existing Scottish secure or short Scottish secure tenant to sign a new tenancy agreement.  From 1 May 2019 all new tenants will sign a revised tenancy agreement which includes all changes made by the Act.

  • Which parts of my tenancy agreement have changed?
  • What do these changes mean for me?
  • How can I update who is in my household?
