Minister to deliver keynote address at Scottish National Conference

Tenants’ Rights Minister Patrick Harvie MSP will deliver the keynote address on the Scottish Government’s Rental Sector Strategy at Propertymark’s Scottish National Conference on 15 September 2022 in Glasgow.

We are awaiting an answer by then. New offer for tenants consultation will have been published and the Scottish Government will have developed its proposals on rent control. Delegates will have the opportunity to interview Harvie and hear how he listened to tenants, landlords and agents to improve the tenancy together.

The consultation presents an ambitious set of proposals for the gradual implementation of a five-year plan, to ensure the rights and needs of people renting accommodation are met as the Scottish Government remains committed to improving accessibility, affordability and standards across the leased sector.

Program for real estate agents

Dr John Boyle of Rettie & Co will explore key trends in the Scottish sales and rental markets since the last stock market crash in 2008 and draw lessons focusing on where we are now in terms of the housing market cycle and where we are likely to be in the wake of recent changes.

Lorna Kerr from Landmark Scotland will outline HMRC’s interests in those operating in the property sector and the processes agents must follow to stay compliant.

An update on all things legal affecting the residential sales and lettings industry in Scotland is included, along with a legislative overview of the importance of complying with the regulations.
