FranchiLaw eNews - February 2018

26 Feb 2018

We've published the latest edition of our eNewsletter - you can read it in full by clicking here.

In this edition we touch on the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If you're a business or other organisation you must be ready on 25th May 2018 otherwise you'll be in breach of the Regulation. We recommend you take steps to comply now.

We also continue with our series on Setting up in Business, this time looking at The Partnership. Whilst a partnership might seem the obvious choice for two or more people setting up in business, there are some serious issues you need to consider.

The Scottish Government brought in new Private Residential Tenancy legislation at the beginning of December 2017. That meant from 1st December 2017 any new tenancy must be created under the new Act. Tenancies in place when the new legislation came into being remain under the former law. There are a whole host of new rights and obligations under the new legislation and we review some of these in our eNewsletter.

Finally, the latest House Price Index figures have been released showing increases in the average price of property in Scotland and the number of property sales registered when compared with the corresponding months in the previous year.
