rented housing

Report on behalf of the Housing and Migration Network which is the first national report to explore the needs and experiences of new migrants living in the private rented sector, to examine practical solutions to problems and to propose policy changes.

People have different needs and desires for housing. Some want to rent privately because it suits their lifestyle; many want to buy their own home; and some want to live in affordable rented housing because it provides the low-cost home and long-term security they need. As a result, there is a range
of housing options in Scotland.

This consultation focuses on one of these options: affordable rented housing.
