Help for Private Landlords

New tenancy type

If you are offering a new tenancy of a self-contained property after 1st December 2017, and you do not live on the premises, you must now offer a 'Private Residential Tenancy', which will not be for a fixed term.  You can only evict your tenant under one or more of 18 specific grounds.

To find out more, go the Scottish Government's Guide for Landlords. This includes a template Tenancy Agreement that you can use.
