From 1 December 2017, all new residential property leases in Scotland are subject to a new letting regime. Under the new regime, it is no longer possible to enter into a new Assured Tenancy or new Short Assured tenancy and all new residential lets (unless exempt) will be private residential tenancies. The exception to this rule is that existing Short Assured Tenancies can be renewed in certain circumstances where the parties and the property remain the same. We have identified a number of issues which may need considered and number of aspects of the PRT and the model tenancy agreement which may need modified in view of the different characteristics of residential properties in rural areas.
You can get all of the information on the PRT in the briefing below.
