Extension Granted for Existing Short Term Let Host / Operators

6 March 2023

Six-month extension approved

Existing short-term let hosts and operators will have more time to apply for a licence after parliament approved a six-month extension.

MSPs voted in favour of extending the timeframe for the short-term let licensing scheme for existing hosts only.

It means that businesses which were already operating as a short-term let before 1 October 2022 have up until 1 October 2023 to apply for a short-term let licence. New hosts still need a licence before they can start operating.
