Private Rented Housing – Information for Landlords and Tenants
In Highland, many more people are choosing to rent privately. There has also been an increase in the number of landlords. Advice on finding a privately rented home is available in our Housing Options Guide.
The private rented sector is regulated to protect the rights of tenants and landlords - and help them to remedy problems.
If you are thinking of becoming a landlord, it is important that you are aware of your legal rights and obligations. We want to help you provide good quality and well managed housing.
If you are a private renting tenant, you have a number of rights and responsibilities. Understanding these, and knowing where to get advice, can help to avoid problems.
