All letting agents in Scotland must now be signed up to a new register in order to trade legally.
The Letting Agent Code of Practice was introduced on January 31, but all agencies had until yesterday to register.
It is now a criminal offence for agents in Scotland to carry out letting agency work if they have not applied or are not registered on the Register of Letting Agents. Those breaking the rules could face a fine of up to £50,000 and up to six months imprisonment.
If you have not applied for registration and have no intention of doing so perhaps you are looking for an Agent to buy your portfolio . If so we would be delighted to hear from you.
