    Wrongful Termination order, tenant eviction, Penalty against landlord

    The Housing & Property Chamber of the First-tier Tribunal for Scotland (FTS) has made the first ever award of a Wrongful Termination Order, penalising a landlord who had evicted a tenant on bogus grounds.

    The tribunal found that the landlord had misled the tribunal in the eviction proceedings and that the applicant, Jesus, was entitled to a wrongful termination by eviction order. It awarded a penalty of £1,350, equivalent to three times the monthly rent under the original tenancy.
    Sadly not enough of a penalty IMHO. But first case for this.


    Slàinte mhath!
