  • Scottish PRS

    Landlords needed to participate in research

    I am looking for landlords to participate in a survey regarding the introduction of rent controls in Scotland in December 2017. The paper looks to fill an academic void as there has been a significant lack of economic research on the impact of rent controls on the Private Rental Sector in Scotland.

    The link to the survey is as follows; it will take less than a minute to complete. Please remove the space between the "."s and paste it into your browser.

    Thank you to everyone who participates!

    Hardly an academic shortfall.

    Rent controls have been described as the quickest way to destroy a city short of bombing it!!

    Just study your recent history from the 60 and 70's

    Save yourself a load of money and wasted time.

    No point in repeating obvious research.

    You don't need to be academic to describe how stupid rent controls are ALWAYS detrimental  for a PRS..

    And don't  quote Germany

    Tenants there have to install kitchens  etc..

    Not many feckless welfare scroungers would be doing that.

    Scottish rent controls are just plain stupid and will result in a reducing rental sector.

    The stupid Scottish Govt will be finding their other stupid policies will also result  in a reducing rental sector.

    You would do better to research why the stupid Scottish Govt believes rent controls will actually reduce rents!?

    Ever heard of cash and brown envelopes!!?

    Unfortunately your personal opinion means less than nothing in an economic context.

    Oh really

    I think not

    I can tell you exactly what rent controls will do

    As I said you are wasting your time.

    If rent controls cause a reducing rental sector; which they always do then the economic effects of an inadequate  rental sector are obvious.

    A thriving rental sector is beneficial  for economic  activity .

    Rent controls reduce private rental capacity which restricts economic activity.

    There just carried out the research  for you for nothing! !!

    Describe specifically the impact that these controls will have on the operation of the PRS; regarding tenant incentives, likely supply and demand issues, landlord incentives, eviction complications, social implications, investment decline, linear rental growth rates, current supply issues, changes in value, maintenance issues, effects on condition, changes in investment concentration, legal issues, social issues and economic issues.

    "the effects are obvious". Please, you're making a fool of yourself. They are vastly complicated. Please enlighten me with all your self proclaimed expertise as to what the specific effects will be.

    No mate you are the one making a fool of yourself with a stupid investigation for something that is already known.

    You can investigate as much as you like.

    The facts are rent controls reduce the size of any PRS.

    Effective markets control rents far better

    That means closing the borders

    Stopping RTB.

    Building millions of social homes

    Forcing builders to build on land that had PP.

    Getting rid of S24 and SDLT surcharges

    The market is the best device for rent control.

    Allowing homebuyers IO mortgages with no repayment vehicle required.

    Abolishing MMR

    Forget your stupid investigation it will not achieve a single thing.

    The answers are already known.

    The title of the questionnaire is Glasgow Landlord Survey. So does this apply to Glasgow rather than the whole of Scotland? I'm interested in the impact on Edinburgh.

    Hi Nick,

    Welcome to Property Tribes.

    We don't normally allow new members to post links, even to an academic survey.

    It would be helpful to know who the survey is for, how it will be used, if data is collected from those taking part in the survey, and if the results will be shared with Property Tribes?

    I quite a agree, the possibility of RPZ's being implemented in Scotland and especially in cities like Edinburgh and Glasgow is concerning. I would very much like to know what Nicks motivation is, where the results will be published and how the data is used.

    The PRS in Scotland is under pressure as a direct result of new legislation in the form of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 which has resulted in the biggest change for landlords since the 1988 Housing Act, if you add this to the raft of regulatory and tax changes it is hardly surprising that landlords north of the border feel that they are being unfairly targeted.
