Malcolm Combe has co-authored the fourth edition of ‘Residential Tenancies: Private and Social Renting in Scotland’ with Peter Robson, Professor of Social Welfare Law at the University of Strathclyde. This textbook is a central reference point for anyone dealing with landlord or tenant matters where the rented property is someone's home.
Residential lets have been heavily regulated by law for some time. Matters have been further reformed by the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016, which introduced a new form of residential tenancy in the private rented sector. The new textbook is fully updated to reflect this regime, and also takes in the transfer of jurisdiction for leases in the private rented sector from the Sheriff Court to the First-tier Tribunal, together with reporting on relevant updates in the social rented sector. The book is published by W. Green. Further information is available on the publisher's website.
