The type of procedure will depend on the type of tenant. On 1 December 2017, the law covering residential tenancies in Scotland changed. A new type of tenancy called a private residential tenancy was introduced, replacing assured and short assured tenancies. Any tenancy started on or after 1 December 2017 is a private residential tenancy.
If you have an assured or short assured tenant whose tenancy began before 1 December 2017, they’ll not be covered by the new rules. Instead, you should follow the appropriate eviction procedure for assured or short assured tenancies.
