Landlords COULD be banned from rent hikes in THIS country

View descriptionShare

Rob discusses recent proposals by the SNP in Scotland that could potentially impact landlords and tenants. He delves into the idea of giving tenants the legal right to keep pets and redecorate their rented homes, however, he strongly criticises the SNP's plan to ban landlords from hiking rents, citing historical evidence and economic principles that suggest such interventions are ineffective. 


  • Landlords in Scotland could potentially be banned from rent hikes under the SNP clampdown.
  • Tenants in Scotland may be given the legal right to keep pets and redecorate their rented homes.
  • Landlords can address concerns about pets and redecoration by updating their tenancy agreements to specify responsibilities.
  • Government intervention with price controls, as seen in Scotland, has not proven effective in the past.
  • The potential ban on rent hikes for landlords in Scotland may lead to market instability when the restriction is lifted.


"Landlords could then be banned from rent hikes under the clampdown. Now, this is absolutely crazy."

"Price controls do not work... putting a lid on the rent controls means the minute the foot's taken off the gas, boom, It all explodes."

"But no, of course, politicians being politicians and because they need to be seen to do something and no one seems to have an interest in history or price edicts or price controls."

"Let the free market do what a free market needs to do... It's not going to work now."
