Policy & Lobbying
Private Rented Sector
In some rural areas the private rented sector is often the main, or only, housing option for those unable to purchase a home on the open market. Over the last few years the sector has seen a number of changes, largely through increased regulation and reform of the housing benefit system. 

Scottish Land & Estates is working with members, the Scottish Government, local authorities and other stakeholders  to ensure that the Private Rented Sector plays an important role in the provision of good quality, effective housing supply.
