S5W-19556: ()

Date lodged: 23 October 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what action it takes to identify letting agents that are not on or have been rejected for the Letting Agent Register; what enforcement action is taken to deal with these agents, and how it ensures that existing and potential clients are made aware of them.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 2 November 2018

The Scottish Government has published a Monitoring Compliance and Enforcement Framework for the regulation of letting agents. This sets out the actions that the Scottish Government will take to monitor the compliance of those businesses undertaking letting agency work and this includes how unregistered agents will be identified and the action that we will take to support the enforcement of regulation.

Details of this framework can be found at:
