What is Landlord Registration (Scotland)

In order to comply with  Part 8 of the Antisocial Behaviour etc. (Scotland) Act 2004 all landlords in the residential private rented sector must be registered with their local authority.

During the registration process, the local authority will assess whether the applicant is a fit and proper person to let a property.  

The registration can be completed online and attracts a fee payable to the local authority.  The registration has a validity of three years.

We can help you with you registration as a landlord with Aberdeen City Council or Aberdeenshire Council.   However if you prefer to carry out the registration yourself, please click here .The process is relatively simple and it should not take more than 15 minutes.

Our experience is that, once the registration has been completed online, it can take anything between a few days to a few months for the local authority to come back to your with a final authorisation.  Nevertheless you will receive a 'Registration Number' at the end of the online registration process.  This 'Registration Number' will suffice to let your property whilst you're waiting for the final confirmation from the local authority.
