S5W-21171: Graham Simpson (Central Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 23 January 2019

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-19556 by Kevin Stewart on 2 November 2018, whether it has taken any enforcement action against letting agents that have been accepted on the Letting Agent Register, and, if so, what.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 30 January 2019

The Scottish Government has not taken any enforcement action against a letting agent who has been accepted onto the Scottish Letting Agent Register.

Where a registered agent is identified as failing to comply with the Code of Practice for Letting Agents, or any requirement of Part 4 of the 2014 Act, we will seek to engage with the agent in line with our published Monitoring Compliance and Enforcement Framework for letting agents.
