    Repairs to do, tenants moving out

    I need to get my property fully rewired. It will take 1-2 weeks for all the work to be done and hey will have to move out. My letting agent has advised not to charge rent this month which we haven’t. Is this right? Do I also need to pay for hotel bill too? With the worms being carried out and covering the mortgage payment now sure I can stretch to hotel costs as well

    Oh! Not sure about Scotland, but I thought the procedure was they continue to pay rent, you can choose to reduce it, and you provide alternative accommodation.

    Hopefully someone versed in Scottish law will be along... good luck

      Since you need your tenants cooperation to dig you out of the hole of not complying with electric laws (see other thread, next time please don't start a fresh thread) you pretty much have no alternative than paying for other accomodation, indeed a smart tenant (they might be viewing, it's a free open forum) would ask for more money.

      You've had 5 years rent but can't pay for their accomodation? No offence but this sounds the wrong game for you. Hope you've done tax return & paid for any tax due (I did today, painful)

      Join Scottish landlords & get advice from their excellent helpline, and do the free LAS courses on how to be a landlord.

      You & property registered? Gas safety certificate?
      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...
