Latest consultations

We are committed to giving you good quality information that is easy to understand. We also want to involve you in decisions that may affect your home, your neighbourhood or your future.

We will consult you on things that may affect your tenancy. We must consult you for example if we are making or changing:

  • Housing, repairs or maintenance services if the changes are likely to affect you
  • Rent and service charges
  • Performance standards in housing, repairs and maintenance
  • Participation strategy.

Tenant and Applicant consultation on key policy areas of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014

The Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 changed tenants' rights. We sent tenants information in November on the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 and the various changes it brings to tenancy rights from 1 May 2019 and 1 November 2019. New tenants since November will be issued with this information at their tenancy sign-ups.

Your views
We now want your views on a few areas of policy where the legislation allows us to choose how we want to manage the following:

1. Taking home ownership into account when letting homes.
2. Possible suspensions of housing applications.
3. Succeeding tenancies.
4. Converting to Short Scottish Secure Tenancies - existing tenants.
5. Issuing Short Scottish Secure Tenancies - new tenants.
6. Streamlined eviction.

We would really appreciate your views on these areas of policy. Please read the information and complete the survey form we sent you and return to us in the FREEPOST envelope we sent by 15 March 2019. The consultation booklet and survey is saved on this page in case you need it.

If you have any questions on this please call 0131 657 0600 and ask for the Housing Admin Team or email

There were no major changes from the previous one and you can read it here.
