Letting agents in Scotland have just under two weeks to apply for a mandatory register. The online application form now allows letting agents without a suitable client bank account and Client Money Protection (CMP) insurance to submit an application to join the Scottish Letting Agent Register. Letting Agents who are in the process of meeting the Client Money requirements of the new Letting Agent Code of Practice will be able to apply to join the Register by the October 1st deadline. However, applicants must have an appropriate client bank account and insurance in place before they will be admitted to the Register.

Further information for letting agents in this position is on the Scottish Government’s website.

Applications to join the Scottish Letting Agent Register can be made here.
