PIRRS is available to tied tenants in Scotland, if their landlord company is a signatory of the Pubs Sector – Scotland code of practice. Given the unique nature of the Scottish pub market, and legislative differences between English and Scottish property law, the code of practice and PIRRS both take this into account to ensure that Scottish tenants have a tailored system of rent dispute resolution.
PIRRS offers access to Independent Experts based in Scotland and with knowledge of the Scottish pub market, more details can be found on the Experts page. Hearings will also be held in a mutually agreed location to ensure the entire process is accessible to all parties.
