Online Hub Launched For Private Renters
A new online hub has been launched to help renters in Scotland’s private rented sector navigate their rights and responsibilities.
Launched by Shelter Scotland, the Private Renting in Scotland resource comes after a rise in the number of calls to the charity’s helpline from tenants renting from private landlords.
According to Shelter Scotland, 330,000 households currently rent from a private landlord in Scotland – around 85,000 of which contain children.
The charity says it has launched the Private Renting in Scotland online resource because it wants to ensure that tenants have the most up to date and accurate information available to them should they face problems in their tenancies.
