Private landlords and tenants

The Coronavirus (Scotland) Act 2020 is now in force and gives additional protection to tenants from eviction during the outbreak by increasing the notice period a landlord must give a tenant.

The Scottish Government has updated their guidance to include information on these changes as well as when to do safety checks and the approach to gas certificates. 

Read Scottish Government guidance.

All other services are suspended and will be reviewed in line with changes to the current government restrictions.

Please note, the Scottish Association of Landlords, Homes for Good and the Chartered Institute of Housing have produced joint guidance for landlords and letting agents to help in these difficult times.
