The Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016 will introduce a new tenancy regime to Scotland called the Private Residential Tenancy (PRT). The Scottish Government state that this new tenancy will come into effect in December 2017. As this date gets closer landlords and letting agents are looking for information on how it will all work, what happens to existing tenancies, what paperwork will we have to use etc. The information available at this time is published on the Scottish Government website here.
LAS will provide any updates to accredited landlords and agents as soon as possible.
