    Any advise greatly appreciated

    Hi, looking for some advise. We rent out properties in Scotland - the amended tenancy (PRT) agreement brought in for tenancies starting from April last year (with the various temporary changes due to the crisis), can someone tell me if the terms revert to the pre-COVID terms after March this year? I am particularly interested to know if the extended notice periods revert?

    With the notice to leave periods (for landlords to give tenants notice to leave/quit) currently extended due to the ongoing crisis, can someone tell me if the length of notice required will reduce in March or later this year?

      AFAIK for UK, only Scottish PRT tenancies have notice to leave. Did you mean that ? Or s21 or s8?

        No-one knows whether at the end of March, the notice periods will reduce. My guess would be that s21 aint going back to 2 months whatever else happens.

          Thanks, yes I meant for PRT’s. I put a post on the forum page for Scotland the other day but didn’t get any replies unfortunately so really appreciate you both taking the time to respond. If they do revert to the normal notice periods, would we not need to give tenants notice that the rules for notice periods have changed (assuming they do)?

            Many people mistakenly think that the Residential Lettings forum is the most active and so that’s the place to get the most/quickest replies but;
            • I can see ‘views per thread’, from which I can see that the number of views by registered members (able to reply) are pretty much the same across all forum areas
            • Posting in the wrong forum area can lead to incorrect answers, especially with legal issues.
            • A quick incorrect reply is not as good as a slow correct reply
            • The Residential Lettings forum is not a dumping ground for unrelated issues simply because it appears ‘most active’

              Think that until legislation/regulations are passed and enacted we won't know. Sadly I've mislaid my crystal ball - the only thing of which can be said it's usually not crystal & often balls...

              I'd keep checking SaL website - you are member??
              https://scottishlandlords.com

              Maybe prop tribes scottish forum
              https://www.propertytribes.com/forum...n=latest_posts

              & Scottish government websites & Scottish news
              https://www.gov.scot/policies/private-renting/ etc etc


              - otherwise it's a bit like asking what the lottery numbers will be this Saturday.... but I do live in hope..

              Kinda doubt things are going to get easier for landlords, Scotland, England, NI, Wales.... Property has always been swings and roundabouts between landlords & tenants, always will be.


              Slàinte mhath!

                I am sorry if I posted in the wrong section.
