Private Renting Reforms: how to evidence the impact of legislation

This briefing is the result of a project with the Urban Big Data Centre (UBDC) at the University of Glasgow and the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence as part of SPICe’s academic engagement programme. It complements another briefing, Private renting reforms in Scotland: overview and analysis (forthcoming), prepared as a part of the same programme.

This paper considers three pieces of Scottish legislation that directly affect tenants living in the private rented sector (PRS). It sets out a framework for monitoring the impact of legislation using readily available data, identifies data gaps and considers possible solutions for filling those gaps.
