To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on extending the Scottish Housing Quality Standard to (a) the private rented sector and (b) tied housing.
Answered by: Kevin Stewart 12 October 2016
Different standards currently apply in different housing tenures and between social and private rented tenancies in Scotland. A stakeholder forum was set up in December 2014 to consider a single condition standard for all housing tenures (including social and private rented houses and tied houses) with a view to conducting a formal public consultation in 2017.
