Private residential tenancy for a room checklist

Make it Legal™ Checklist

Here are a few important steps to take to finish your document

Read the document to make sure it meets your needs. Remember that, if you have any questions, you can Ask a lawyer for advice. Read Residential tenancies in Scotland for more information.

Rentals of residential property in Scotland are regulated by various laws. Make all of the necessary preparations to ensure that you comply with the law by, for example:

All landlords, tenants, and guarantors must sign the Private Residential Tenancy agreement. If the landlord is a company or a partnership, its representative (ie signatory) must sign. 

The date of the agreement is the date on which the parties sign, if that is the same day. If they sign on different days, it is the day on which the last person signs. 

You can sign your Private Residential Tenancy for a Room by either:

  • signing online using RocketSign, or

  • signing in print

    • print a copy for each party

    • all parties should sign and date all copies by hand. They can do this at different times, for example, if the landlord sends the other parties the signed copies and asks them to sign all of them and return one

All parties should keep their own original signed copy of the Private Residential Tenancy agreement.

A copy of your Private Residential Tenancy for a Room will also be stored automatically in your Rocket Lawyer account ‘Dashboard’.
