Energy Act 2011

Chapter 3: Private Rented Sector: Scotland

146.Sections 54 to 65 in this Chapter makes provision for Scotland which is equivalent to that made in Chapter 2 for England and Wales. Scottish Ministers can choose whether or not to make Scottish energy efficiency regulations or Scottish tenants’ energy efficiency improvement regulations. Consequently, Scottish energy efficiency regulations and Scottish tenants’ energy efficiency regulations may come into force no earlier than 1 April 2015. Save for these differences the provisions for Scotland are intended to operate in the same way as for England and Wales giving Scottish Ministers similar powers to that given to the Secretary of State and described above for Chapter 2.
