UKAA Scotland Hub Discussion Evening – Rent Controls: Six Months On

Join our panel to examine the impact of temporary rent controls in Scotland six months on. We ask: 

  • How have rental levels responded?

  • What impact on the investment market?

  • What has it meant for valuations?

  • How are investors viewing the six-month extension?

  • Proposed Housing Bill – what could “acceptable” rent control look like to investors?

  • Anything to learn from rent controls in other jurisdictions?

  • What might be the implications of the change in political leadership?

  • What can the Govt do to fire up the BTR market once more?
