Housing (Scotland) Act 2014

Private rented housing panel: disqualification from membership

195.Section 95 inserts new paragraph 1A into Schedule 4 to the Rent (Scotland) Act 1984. Paragraph 1A(1) inserted into Schedule 4 to the 1984 Act provides that the holders of certain offices are disqualified from being a member of the private rented housing panel (PRHP) and lists the offices. The PRHP also has functions conferred by the Property Factors (Scotland) Act 2011 and when carrying out these functions is known as the homeowner housing panel (HOHP). Members of the PRHP are also members of the HOHP. Therefore these disqualifications also affect the composition of the HOHP.

196.Paragraph 1A(2) inserted into Schedule 4 to the 1984 Act provides that the Scottish Ministers may amend the list of disqualified offices by order. This power could be used to add or remove offices and would be subject to affirmative procedure in the Scottish Parliament.
