Dispute resolution

As of 1 December 2016, some private rented sector disputes are being dealt with by the Housing and Property Chamber. The chamber will sit within the newly-created First-tier Tribunal for Scotland. A new upper-tier tribunal will handle appeals.

The Housing and Property Chamber will deal with disputes about:

  • rent assessment
  • Repairing Standard
  • landlord right of entry
  • property factors

Other private rented sector cases, such as illegal evictions, will continue to be dealt with by a sheriff court.
