Council housing - evictions - A to Z

Service Outline

As a council tenant you have a Scottish secure tenancy, which means we can only make you leave your home if we have a court order. A court order will only be granted to us if it's reasonable and a particular ground for eviction exists. Grounds for eviction could include:

  • regularly failing to pay your rent
  • breaking some other condition of your tenancy
  • behaving, or allowing someone living in your house to behave, in a way that causes nuisance to your neighbours

For more information please contact your local housing office on 01620 827827.
