Private rented Tenancies.
SAL has been in consultation with the Scottish Government to define the new style Private Residential Tenancy. This is to clear up the uncertainty that has existed on whether a short assured tenancy which is renewing on a contractual basis ( periodic ) would become an new style PRT at the first contractual renewal after the new tenancy legislation is implemented in December of 2017.
The short answer is that tenancies of this type will not become PRTs but rather continue as short assured tenancies unless terminated by either party.
