About us

Renting Scotland is jointly funded by the Scottish Government and Shelter Scotland. Shelter Scotland created and maintains the site. 

The website is an industry-wide information hub for both tenants and landlords in the private rented sector in Scotland. It was launched 1 May, 2013 to coincide with the Scottish Government’s Tenant Information Pack becoming mandatory for all private landlords to give to their tenants.

The site has a governance group who contribute by commenting on functionality and suitability of content.

The members of this group are:

Shelter Scotland

National Union of Students

Scottish Association of Landlords

Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors

Chartered Institute of Housing Scotland

National Landlords Association
