    HMO and eviction

    I am a student living in Scotland with four fellow students.
    We are here on Erasmus exchange for one semester only, and for last 4 months we have been living peacefully and happily in our privately let property.

    However recently we got an urging mail stating that an inspection from HMO will be performed, as our landlord is probably unregistered and to 'ascertain the mode of occupation'.

    Our landlord has made a written tenancy agreement with one of us and has been collecting the rent regularly each month.

    We believe that the landlord may be unregistered and may not possess the HMO licence. As we have only a month and a week left to finish our semester here after which we go back home, our worry and question to you is:

    If our landlord is unregistered and/or doesn't have the HMO licence will we be evicted from the property in less than a month?

    We were thinking whether to tell the truth about our situation and hope that they will understand and give us at least a month to leave the property or to try to hide the fact that there are more than two of us here and hope for the best.

    They have to give you at least 2 months notice.

      Scottish tenancy law is different to that in England/Wales. This site is predominantly for E/W so you may not get much in the way of valid advice. I suggest you contact Shelter Scotland on 0808 800 4444 or see their website: http://scotland.shelter.org.uk/getad...opics/eviction
