Scotland Antisocial Behaviour Bill

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has been discussed before (tried to search for it but couldn't find anything).

Just read one of our local EA 'guides', in Edinburgh and came across a short piece (apparently reproduced from the Scotsman, December last year).

In it they describe new (is it still new or has it been passed?) legislation - the 'Antisocial Behavious etc. (Scotland) Bill'. This will apparently force landlords in Scotland to become registered with their local authority (presumably there will be a charge to do this) - failure to do so means they cannot legally rent out their properties and there are punishments for this.

Also, landlords would "be held responsible not only for the behaviour of their tenants, but their tenant's visitors, both in and out of the propery. Failure to do so could result in a hefty fine [up to £5000] and a criminal record".

Not surprisingly the EA slant on this was negative :). Anyone heard anything about this - it's taken from an old article so maybe it never happened?
