Scottish Government consultation on short-term rentals

In April 2019 the Scottish Government announced a consultation into the future regulatory framework for short-term rentals in Scotland. The consultation, which will shape the development of future regulations, closed on 22 July 2019. The STAA supports a proportionate regulatory regime in Scotland, and called for the introduction of an appropriate distinction between amateur and professional short-term rentals hosts, as well as a simple online registration system for areas with severe housing pressure.
