Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016

Part 9 – Final Provisions

108.Section 76 provides that the Scottish Ministers may by regulations make any incidental, supplementary, consequential, transitional, transitory or saving provision they consider appropriate for the purposes of, in connection with, or for giving full effect to the Act or any provision made under it.

109.Section 77 ensures that when making regulations under the Act, Ministers have the ability to make different provision for different purposes. This section also sets out the parliamentary procedure which applies to the exercise of the regulation-making powers conferred by the Act.

110.Section 79 provides that Part 9 comes into force on the day after Royal Assent and that the other provisions of the Act come into force on such day as the Scottish Ministers appoint by regulations. Subsection (4) provides that the regulations which bring section 1 of the Act into force can also make minor amendments to the other Acts outlined in the subsection so that the references to the day that section one comes into force can be replaced with the actual date of its commencement. Inserting the actual date will make the amended legislation easier to follow.
