We can provide help and advice to private tenants about all aspects of renting a home privately.
If your tenancy started before 1/12/17, you are likely to have an Assured or Short Assured tenancy. Your landlord must have given you a Tenant Information Pack which sets out important information about:
- Your tenancy
- Information about the property
- Information about your landlord
- Responsibilities of tenants and landlords
Any Assured or Short Assured tenancy will continue to run until ended by either the landlord or the tenant.
If your tenancy started after 1/12/17, you will have been given the new Private Residential Tenancy. Important tenancy information, including the rights and responsibilities of you and your landlord are detailed in the easy read notes which are provided along with the tenancy agreement.
More information on private renting is available on the Scottish Government's website and Shelter Scotland.
