Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 22 November 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how many landlords have (a) had action taken against them and (b) been (i) prosecuted and (ii) convicted each year under the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 for failing to register as landlords, broken down by local authority area.

Answered by: Annabelle Ewing 6 December 2017

The latest available information in our Criminal Proceedings database is for 2015-16 and this shows there have been no prosecutions under the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 since it was introduced.

Information for 2016-17 will not be available until publication of the Criminal Proceedings in Scotland, 2016-17 Statistical Bulletin. This is due to be published in early 2018.
