Rent control: principles, practicalities and international experience
This briefing paper by Prof Ken Gibb and Prof Alex Marsh provides examples of the range of contemporary international rent control or rent regulation practice as operated in the private rented sector (PRS).

This briefing paper by Prof Ken Gibb and Prof Alex Marsh provides examples of the range of contemporary international rent control or rent regulation practice as operated in the private rented sector (PRS), highlighting a small number of European examples in a little more detail. It considers and reflects on the evaluative criteria used to assess and appraise these policies, and reflect on what this means for the Scottish debate on an effective national rent control policy.

This is a revised version of a briefing prepared at the request of the Scottish Government in January 2022, in relation to their ongoing work aimed at ‘introducing a national effective system of rent control’.
