This Ole House

An article from the Nearly Legal housing law blog alerts draws my attention to the imminent (well, 1st April 2009) coming into force of Section 11 of the Homelessness etc (Scotland) Act 2003.

This long awaited jigsaw piece of the legislation will require landlords to notify the local authority before taking action to recover a rented property. It will allow the authority (with the assistance of other agencies) to take early action to assist the tenant and prevent unnecessary homelessness.

Section 11 will put into statutory force the protocols agreed with many local social landlords in Glasgow as part of Govan Law Centre‘s prevention of homelessness project (POHP).
