Ending Your Tenancy 

The Tenancy Agreement can only be ended in one of the following ways:

  • Four weeks’ notice by the tenant,
  • Written agreement by the tenant and landlord,
  • By the landlord taking court action to recover possession on one or more of the grounds specified in the Housing (Scotland) Act 2001,
  • Action by the landlord as a result of the abandonment of the house by the tenant,
  • The death of the tenant where no-one meets the statutory requirements for succession,
  • Where the tenant or a member of the tenants’ household is the subject of an Anti-Social Behaviour Order, and the landlord takes action to convert the tenancy to a Short Secure Tenancy.
