Short-Let Licence Information

From 1 October 2022 the law around short-term lets changed in Scotland.

From that date, all owners of short-term let accommodation in Scotland need to be approved and hold a licence from the local council.

The approval process is centred around your safety as a guest - areas tested and inspected, for example, are water, gas and electric supply, portable electrical equipment and fire detection.

More information relating to this licencing scheme can be found on the Scottish Government's Website
