    Letting a Log-Cabin and the rules / tenancy agreement (in SCOTLAND)

    Hi, i have a log-cabin in SCOTLAND.

    I pay ground rent to the land owner. I also pay council tax. The owner of the site is happy for a person to take over my cabin in the short/medium term and letting it out is a good way forward for me

    The land owner is happy with this.

    I still own own the property outright.

    So im guessing that makes me a landlord in the traditional sense?

    Being a log-cabin, are there any changes to the rules / regulations to the tenancy agreement (the new PRT agreement style).

    Or, does the PRT agreement also cover cabins?

    Thanks
    Craig

    (I dont fancy doing a holiday-let. granted the profits can be good, but i dont want to go down that road).

    Standard PRT. And pretty much regardless of what any paperwork is, it will be a PRT.

    But you will be aware that whilst the tenant may give notice after 28 days the landlord has no "no fault" notice available and may only give notice on grounds (eg rent not paid, selling it, wants to move back in..). So

    - is not an option any more since PRT came in.

    But the site owner won't realise that of course... if you tell him you've used a standard private tenancy agreement.

    A "Holiday let" where the parties involved know it isn't for a holiday will not be a holiday let but a PRT.
