SPF comments of the potential extension of COVID planning provisions

The real estate sector is a key catalyst for jobs, investment and creating places and the SPF is firmly of the view that extending the provisions in the Coronavirus (Scotland Act) 2020 could assist with the recovery from COVID-19 and contribute to rebuilding the economy.

SPF views on the potential extension of the Scottish Coronavirus Acts

The SPF is concerned that our well-respected property legal system could be undermined, which could create a barrier to investment. It is therefore critical that any extensions of the provisions in the Coronavirus Acts that create an unbalanced relationship between landlords and tenants are not continued for any longer than necessary.
