Under the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014, all letting agents operating in Scotland are required to sign up to a new compulsory register by the end of September 2018. The Act also requires letting agents to abide by a statutory Code of Practice and to fulfil certain minimum requirements on training. Information on who will be required to register and meet the training requirements can be found here.
Landlord Accreditation Scotland (LAS) and the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) Scotland have developed a professional development programme called LETWELL designed specifically with the new requirements in mind and to support the sector in ensuring they comply with the new rules and undertake the proper training.
There is already a high demand for training so please do contact LAS if you wish to be added to the priority booking list for the next intake of learners.
