The amount of notice the tenant must give depends on the type of tenancy agreement they have with their landlord.
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 starting on or after 1 December 2017 is a private residential tenancy.
An assured or short assured tenancy that began before 1 December 2017 will not be covered by the new rules. Tenant’s must give the appropriate amount of notice for assured or short assured tenancies.
