The register was set up in January 2018 for all those currently carrying out letting agency work (as defined by section 61 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014), and operates hand in hand with the Letting Agent Code of Practice that all landlords must understand, and has been introduced with the express intention of driving up standards and accountability – protecting landlords and tenants alike.
