Tenancy Deposit Scheme Consultation

GUSRC have recently submitted a response to the proposed changes to Tenancy Deposit Schemes in Scotland as proposed by the Scottish Government.

The response can be viewed or downloaded here: SRC Tenancy Deposit Scheme Consultation Response

Dear Sir/Madam,

We welcome the opportunity to respond to the Safedeposits Scotland and the Letting Protection Service Scotland consultations. We believe that a single tenancy deposit scheme is sufficient and our preference would be for the Safedeposits Scotland scheme. We believe that the cumulative experience of the partner organisations behind this scheme provide the best opportunity for a balanced and fair process for both tenants and landlords alike.

I hope that our feedback is considered in detail and that the views of the students that we represent are fully considered during the consultation process.

Glasgow University Students’ Representative Council represents the interests of over 24,000 students registered at the University of Glasgow to the University and nation. Council comprises up to 45 elected students who meet throughout the year, and is a fully independent representative organisation being non-affiliates of NUS (National Union of Students).

Kind Regards,


If you have any questions about the response, please email SRC VP Support.
