Landlord Registration

By 30th April 2006, landlords letting properties in Scotland should either be registered or have submitted a valid application for registration.   It will be an offence to let a property, (unless the property is exempt under the legislation) after this date without having either been registered or having submitted a valid application for registration.
 
The aim of the landlord registration scheme is to ensure that all private landlords are `fit and proper’ to be letting residential property.  The requirement will help local authorities to remove disreputable landlords from the market and to protect tenants and their neighbours from the impact of anti social behaviour and mismanaged property in the wider community.
 
Registration will be required for private landlords letting residential property in Scotland, unless all the houses they let are covered by one or more of the exemptions.   Letting part of the home is exempt (i.e. resident landlords) as is a house let to the tenant of an agricultural holding or croft.  There are some other minor exemptions, including holiday homes or letting to members of the landlords own family.
 
Landlords and Agents can register on-line by visiting:

www.landlordregistrationscotland.gov.uk  

 
There is a 10% discount on the registration fee and on the property fee for on-line applications. 
 
Alternatively paper application forms will be available from all Highland Council Service Points or can be requested by contacting:

Landlords who are holders of a House in Multiple Occupation Licence do not need to register as they will be passported into the system.  However their agents will need to be registered if their details were not included in the landlord’s HMO application.
