December 2017 saw the introduction of the new “Private Residential Tenancy” in the private rented sector in Scotland.
At the same time, jurisdiction for disputes arising from private sector tenancies transferred from the sheriff court to the First Tier Tribunal-Housing and Property Chamber
This session will look at -
• the new Private Residential tenancy
• the rules relating to its creation and termination,
• the grounds for eviction and
• the powers and procedures of the tribunal.
If time permits, we may also consider briefly the new rules relating to registration of letting agents.
This session will be of benefit to anyone who provides advice to private landlords (or any solicitors who are themselves private landlords !!)
