If your landlord uses the Scottish Government rental model, they should also give you the “Easy Read Notes” which explain the rental conditions in plain English. Any rental agreement that started on or after December 1, 2017 is a private residential rent. These new leases will bring changes and improvements in the private leasing sector, including: there are six notices/forms that are provided for by law and must be used for specific purposes when a tenant has a private lease. These include an exit notice and a communication on rent increases. All secure and guaranteed short-term leases will be maintained, but new leases in the private rental sector from December 2017 will be private residential rents. Ministers accepted the recommendation and consulted with tenants, tenant representatives, landlords, landlords, landlords, investors and municipalities in the development of the new lease.

A landlord is required to make available the written terms of a private lease pursuant to Section 10 of private housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016 (“the law”). This is the Scottish Government`s standard private housing lease (“standard tenancy agreement”), which can be used to fulfil this obligation. The group made a key recommendation, namely to replace the current secure leasing regime with a new leasing regime for all future private sector leases. The group also agreed that the new lease should offer clarity, simplicity, ease of use and flexibility.
