Overview of short-term let licences
From 1 October 2022 the law around short-term lets is changing.
From this date, if you use accommodation to offer short-term lets in Scotland you’ll need to apply for a licence from your local council.
Types of short-term let licence
There are 4 types of licence:
'home sharing' means you rent out all or part of your own home while you’re living there
'home letting' means letting all or part of your own home while you’re not there, for example while you're on holiday
'secondary letting' means letting a property where you do not normally live, for example a second home or holiday let
'home letting and home sharing' means you let out all or part of your own home both while you are living there and also at times when you're not there
