About us

Renting Scotland is jointly funded by the Scottish Government, The Safe Deposits Scotland Trust 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.

Since then The Safe Deposits Scotland trust has provided further funding to redevelop the site to take in to account new changes to Scotland's private rental sector. The Private Residential Tenancy is a new type of tenancy which applies to all tenancies in Scotland which started on or after 1 December 2017.
