Dear Mr Brown,  

 

Thank you for your information request of 7 February 2020.  Aberdeen City
Council (ACC) has completed the necessary search for the information
requested. Our response is now detailed below.

 

1.       Since. January 2010 to December 2019 how many applications were
made to register as a private landlord?

All applications for Landlord Registration are recorded on the national
Landlord Registration system which is provided by the Scottish Government
and offers the following functions:

o The online application process used by landlords
o The public search facility used by tenants and neighbours
o The administrative portal used by local authority Landlord
Registration teams

 

This online platform was wholly redeveloped and re-launched in February
2017, and. information relating to applications under the legacy system
(pre-February 2017) is no longer available.

 

The number of applications received by Aberdeen City Council on the new
system since February 2017 to date is as follows:

o New applications: 5,283
o Renewal applications: 15,200
o Update applications: 4,627

 

2.       Same period how many applications were rejected?

Only the Council’s Licensing Committee has the power to refuse an
application for Landlord Registration therefore statistics for this are
available for the period between January 2010 – December 2019.

During this period, the Licensing Committee refused 5 applications.

 

3.       Same period how many registrations were revoked?

Only the Council’s Licensing Committee has the power to revoke an approved
Landlord Registration therefore statistics for this are available for the
period between January 2010 – December 2019.

During this period, the Licensing Committee revoked one (1) Registration
(which was overturned by the Court on appeal).

 

4.       What type of Disclosure Scotland certificate do you obtain if at
all on the applicant?

Aberdeen City Council does not require an applicant to provide the Council
with a criminal record certificate prior to determination of the
application. This is because the Council copies all applications to Police
Scotland for comments, as a matter of course.
