Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Private Landlord Registration (Information and Fees) (Scotland) Regulations 2005 (“the principal Regulations”).

They substitute £55 as the principal fee in the principal Regulations (regulation 2(3)(a)). This replaces the method of calculation of the principal fee as originally provided for in paragraph 2 of Schedule 2 to the principal Regulation (regulation 2(3)(b)).

Regulation 2(3)(d) makes two amendments to the list of additional fees. The first amendment has the effect of exempting liability for an additional fee for homes which are already caught by processes in place for HMO licences or other local authority accreditation. The second amendment adds to the list of additional fees a fee where an agent is specified in an application and that agent is not already registered or an applicant for registration.

A definition of “HMO licence” is added to regulation 1 of the principal Regulations (regulation 2(2)).
