The Scottish Government has been working with key stakeholders including ARLA and the RICS on letting agent regulation for a number of years and finally they've published a very robust Code of Practice which we welcome. It will help to drive up standards in letting and agents in the sector and to a certain extent help level the playing field for those who want to do things right.

Clan Gordon is regulated by RICS and licenced by ARLA and we also now subscribe to the code of practice of the Council of Letting Agents (CLA). We are determined to drive up the standards of service for all landlords and tenants so we strongly welcome this code of practice. It's just a shame it won't come into force until 31 January 2018!!

You can find a link to the code here.
