To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on extending the Scottish Housing Quality Standard to (a) the private rented sector and (b) tied housing.


Different standards currently apply in different housing tenures and between social and private rented tenancies in Scotland. A stakeholder forum was set up in December 2014 to consider a single condition standard for all housing tenures (including social and private rented houses and tied houses) with a view to conducting a formal public consultation in 2017.
