This Order brings into force the remaining provisions of Parts 1 and 2 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2006.
The sections in Part 1 that are commenced in this Order provide for housing renewal areas, amendment of the tolerable standard and the renewal, improvement, demolition and maintenance of houses. Sections 89 to 106 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1987 which provide for the declaration of housing action areas are repealed but saved in Article 4 for a period of 2 years in respect of housing action areas declared before the repeal.
Part 2 provides for assistance, (including grants and loans) from local authorities for housing purposes. These provisions replace Part 13 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1987, however the majority of the provisions in Part 13 will remain in force for a year. Articles 5 and 6 save the provisions in Part 13 for some applications for grant and for any applications already approved by the date of repeal.
Schedule 6 to the 2006 Act makes consequential amendments to the law in various areas. Article 7 preserves the previous law in some cases.
