As a member of Scotland’s Housing Network, the council is issuing a survey to private landlords operating across Fife. This forms part of a nationwide survey of landlords, distributed by all 32 local authorities during 2024. The survey, which can be accessed via the link below, aims to build on our understanding of the private rented sector stock, profile of tenants and the profile of landlords operating in the sector.
Private Landlord Survey 2024
We would appreciate if you could take part in the survey and help us understand the current challenges and opportunities that private landlords are facing.
Your participation in this survey is voluntary and you may refuse to take part in the research or exit the survey at any time. Your answers will be completely anonymous and treated confidentially. They will not be used for any other purposes than those already indicated.
Please note that If you let properties in multiple local authority areas, you only need to complete this survey once.
If you have any questions about this survey, contact email@example.com.
If you are a private landlord or thinking about becoming a landlord in Scotland, there are a number of key responsibilities and things you must do before renting out your property.
Private landlords must register with their local authority to ensure that minimum legal requirements are met. Please visit the Landlord Registration website for more information.
If you are unsure, please seek legal advice on the requirements in your own particular circumstances.
The Council have also introduced a free Landlord Accreditation Scheme for Fife, which aims to improve the standards of property management within the private rented sector.
More detailed information and advice can be found by visiting the Scottish Government's Private renting website.
