Scottish Rental Agreements

You and your tenant can either sign the agreements in person or publish both copies for your client`s signature.

On December 1, 2017, a new type of lease – the private lease – came into effect, replacing the guaranteed and short leases for all new leases.

If you don`t do that, you`re breaking the law. When a transfer is made to the rental agent, they are first issued by a provisional order proposing the amount whose rent can be increased. They shall have fourteen days from the date on which the interim order was issued to request a new examination.

So, some changes to remember.. If you are not satisfied with the signing of the lease that your landlord gives you, you can take it to a Shelter Scotland or Citizens Advice advice centre and ask an advisor to check it for you.
