Important Changes to Your Rights as a Tenant: The Housing Scotland Act 2014

The Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 introduces important changes to the rights of all social housing tenants which come into effect in 2019.

We wrote to all our tenants about the changes to your tenancy in October 2018. We've also updated all of our policies to reflect the changes, all our policies can be found in the downloads section of the website or by clicking here.

A summary of the changes and how these effect your tenancy, including the date they come into effect, can be found below.

It will be important to let us know about changes to who lives in your home as it may affect your right to make changes to your tenancy agreement. The two forms you will need to complete can be downloaded below;
