Evicting tenants from residential properties can often prove tricky and even more so in the current climate.
The Scottish Government has asked all landlords not to evict a tenant because of the financial hardship caused Covid-19 restrictions and to be flexible with tenants throughout the pandemic. To enforce this, the Coronavirus (Scotland) Act 2020 extends the notice that landlords require to give tenants in Scotland before eviction can be sought.
A new year and another lockdown in Scotland, however we are hopefully starting to see light at the end of the tunnel with the roll out of the vaccination programme.
Throughout mainland Scotland, people are currently only permitted to leave their homes for essential purposes. However there are exceptions and the Scottish Government has confirmed that activities in connection with moving home, including viewing a property, are still allowed, as long as they can be carried out safely.
This year has been challenging for so many of us, but we are glad that we are now starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel, and we are starting to look forward as we move to a new, and hopefully better year ahead. We want to thank all our clients for supporting our business throughout this difficult year and being patient with us as we adapted to new ways of working.
