    Edinburgh calls for licensing regime

    Edinburgh calls for licensing regime in short term lets consultation response

    A licence will be required for anyone either operating a property on a commercial basis or in excess of a specified limit set by the local authority. In Edinburgh’s case this would be proposed at 28 days. The Council has major concerns about the scale of short term lets where a property is offered for significant periods of the year such that it is no longer used as a primary place of residence. Therefore the introduction of a days per year limit is viewed as an effective tool in managing the profound effect that short term lets have on the city’s housing supply and services in particular

    Will this mean that SAs in Edinburgh is no longer a good investment?

    Hi,

    It's important to note that the City of Edninburgh Council does not have the power to introduce a licensing regime without primary legislation from the Scottish Government. Their preference is for a licensing regime, but that is not necessarily what the outcome of the consultation process will be. In the short-term, nothing is likely to change with respect to short-letting in Edinburgh.

    Kind regards,

    STAA Secretariat
