Generation Rent project

From the City Council :

The Generation Rent project is a collaboration between Dundee City Council and Generation Rent.

The aim of the project is to identify best practice in ensuring tenants in the private sector are more informed of their rights and responsibilities.

Dundee is the only Scottish Local Authority participating alongside three English and one Welsh authority in the project.

We recognised that whilst we have very good lines of communication with landlords and agents through the HMO Licensing Scheme, Landlord Registration and Dundee Landlord Accreditation, it is much more difficult to communicate with tenants and particularly the most vulnerable tenants who will often move home on a regular basis.

We encouraging tenants to complete an online or telephone survey that launched last month and runs until 18th June. Submitted questionnaires will be subsequently analysed by Generation Rent and the outcome of the project nationally, used to identify best practice.

You can access the survey here.
