Section 30: Right to compensation for improvements
53.This section sets out the detailed arrangements to support a tenant’s entitlement under the right to compensation for improvement. Where the tenant has carried out certain improvement works with the consent of the landlord they are entitled to be compensated for the cost of those works when the tenancy comes to an end. The Scottish Ministers can make regulations prescribing:
those works which qualify for compensation;
certain circumstances in which compensation is not payable;
minimum and maximum levels of compensation;
the procedures to be followed, and the factors to be taken into account, when claiming for or determining compensation.
54.Regulations in respect of these matters already exist for secure tenancies in the Secure Tenants (Compensation for Improvements) (Scotland) Regulations 1994 (SI 1994/632).
