Scottish Secure Tenancy Agreement Model
1.8 There is also secondary legislation and guidelines for Safe Scottish Leases and the 2014 Act as follows: Or you can download and print this rental contract and fill out by hand what you need. Edinburgh City Council has a short lease on its website if you want to take a look at an example of what you look like. 1.2 The revised Scottish Secure Tenancy Agreement Model was established on behalf of the Scottish Government to reflect substantial changes in the rights that tenants have, pursuant to the terms of their tenancy agreement, in accordance with Part 2 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 (“Act 2014”). It will help social leaseholders review their own leases from May 1, 2019, when most of the provisions of the 2014 Act will come into effect. The revised model also takes into account the provisions of the 2014 Attribution, Sublease, Joint Leases and Estates Act, which will come into force on November 1, 2019. If you have not received an AT5 notification that you have a short guaranteed lease or that your lease is less than six months, you probably have a secure lease. For example, your lease could stipulate that “the property is leased for a period of six months, then monthly.” This would mean that your lease would last six months and it could then be renewed one month at a time. 1.6 Owners may include or vary other clauses in their own lease agreements as long as the requirements of the 2001 Act, the Housing (Scotland) Act 2010 and the 2014 Act are met and met. Other conditions, called “additional conditions,” are terms you may have in your lease. They cover a number of rules, and you should read them to check that they apply to your property. 1.7 The legal commentary attached to the 2002 model should help the reader understand the content of each clause when the lease is introduced.
The legal comment has not been updated. However, information on changes to tenant rights is contained in Part 2 of the 2014 Act and in the explanatory notes accompanying the law. An AT5 is the special message your landlord must give you if they want your rental agreement to be short and unsecured. You must receive an AT5 before changing ownership, or it will not be a short secure rental agreement.
