This webinar will begin by briefly revising the key features of the landlord/tenant relationship in Scotland and summarising methods for ending a tenancy.
Correct procedures for eviction will then be explored, focusing on the new Private Residential Tenancy, but also providing an overview of Assured and Short Assured Tenancies.
Common problems and challenges will be highlighted. An overview of how the law is developing completes the session. By the end of this session you will be able to:-
- identify correct procedures for eviction for all main private sector Scottish tenancy types
- understand key differences between the procedures for Private Residential Tenancies and Assured Tenancies.
- recognise the risks and costs of handling evictions incorrectly
- give clear guidelines to landlords and tenants where eviction is being considered
