To ask the Scottish Government when the power to implement rent pressure zones will come into force.
Answered by: Kevin Stewart 17 August 2017
It is intended that the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016 will come into force on 1 December 2017. Local authorities will then have the ability to make an application to the Scottish Ministers for an area to be designated as a Rent Pressure Zone.
