Brian Moran of Your Move Scotland comments:

“Rental prices are increasing across much of Scotland thanks to high levels of demand and poor supply in many areas, with particular strain in Edinburgh which saw prices rise by 4.1% over the year.

Scottish landlords continue to see returns of close to 5%. It’s crucial that all landlords in Scotland start to prepare for the changes on
the horizon such as Letting Agent Code of Practice which is due to commence in early 2018.

Landlords should be talking with their agents now to make sure they are prepared for the changes and understand what it means for them, sooner rather than later.”
