    Notice to Quit + section 33 notice

    My tenants are in a year's lease which ends at the end of July. (1) How many months notice to I need to give? ( website is a bit confusing. Letting agent says 2months.)

    Other question is that the letting agent says he'll 'instruct solicitor'. (2)Does it need to be done through a solicitor? ( The cost is quoted as £150 + vat.)

    I also paid the letting agent £150 + vat at the start of the tenancy for landlords insurance cover. (3) Say for talking sake, letting agent gives them notice to quit but tenants ignore it, does this type of policy cover you for that scenario?

    I also read somewhere that the notice to quit has to be done in person, it that the case in Scotland also?

    Presumably this is a Scottish tenancy?

    Understand that to be enforceable in Scotland notices must be served by recorded-signed-for or Sherrif's officer.

    Read insurance policy to see what it covers.

    Shelter has guidance on notice periodds (make sure you read Scottish one)

    Solicitor not required, you can do it - notices etc on SaL website, they also have helpline & free courses
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...
