To ask the Scottish Government when the proposed register of letting agents will be (a) compiled and (b) published.
Answered by: Kevin Stewart 28 June 2016
We expect that the register of letting agents will be open for applications in early 2018, once the first-tier tribunal, the body responsible for appeals against a decision to refuse or revoke registration, is ready to hear letting agent cases. Once a decision has been made to admit an applicant to the register, they will be entered on the publically available register.
