7. Enforcement, Sanctions and Monitoring
The Repairing Standard is well established with existing enforcement, sanction and monitoring requirements. For private tenants, standards can be enforced through the First-tier Tribunal for Scotland (Housing and Property Chamber).
It is possible some proposed changes may require primary legislation. In particular, this may be necessary if the repairing standard is to be extended to include agricultural tenancies and some other kinds of lets.
We think the current First-tier Tribunal for Scotland (Housing and Property Chamber) enforcement route is sufficient.
