More than 270,000 private sector tenants in Scotland will get better protection under plans unveiled by the Scottish Government.

The proposals, which will now go out to consultation, would help people deal with rogue landlords and give private tenants a greater voice.

The package includes a simpler, more targeted regulatory system, help for landlords and communities dealing with antisocial tenants, and more effective justice for tenants and landlords involved in disputes.

Housing Minister Keith Brown said: “A small group of exploitative and unprofessional landlords undermine the work done by the many good landlords.”
