Help with Evicting a Tenant in Glasgow or Edinburgh

Dealing with a problematic tenant can take up a lot of your time, cause you stress, and put you in financial difficulty. However, we offer an eviction service that is efficient and effective. Evicting a tenant must be dealt with carefully, as there are strict regulations in place to protect their rights. There are many grounds for eviction, and you must serve notice to your tenant providing them with information relating to the ground(s) you are using. You must also include details about how long they have before they must leave the property and, in certain situations, evidence to support the ground(s) for eviction. Where your tenant does not leave the property in the allocated time, we can assist you with making an application for an eviction order.

Our lawyers specialise in eviction matters in Scotland, and we can assist you with:

  • Private Residential Tenancies (PRTs)
  • Grounds for eviction
  • Notices to leave
  • Eviction orders
  • Rent arrears
  • Anti-social behaviour

On What Grounds Can I Evict a Tenant?

There are eight mandatory grounds you can rely on to evict a tenant, these are:

  • You intend to sell the property.
  • Your mortgage lender is going to repossess and sell the property.
  • You intend to do significant work on the property.
  • You wish to live in the property.
  • You no longer wish to use the property for residential purposes.
  • You intend to let the property to someone with a religious job, such as a nun, priest, imam or rabbi.
  • The tenant has been convicted of an offence.
  • The tenant is no longer using the property as their primary or only home.

There are specific evidence requirements relating to each of these grounds, but we can advise you fully on how best to proceed and assist you throughout the eviction process. There are also several discretionary grounds which our team can discuss with you if appropriate.
