Landlords – No evictions for 6 months

Landlords in Scotland will not be able to evict tenants for six months, the first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, announced today.

Sturgeon said that the prime minister had already announced that landlords would not be able to evict tenants for a three-month period, but Scotland would be extending those provisions to six months. She said housing tribunals were currently not sitting.

“Nobody should face evictions because of the crisis we’re living through,” Sturgeon said at first minister’s questions.

She added that these measures apply to private sector and that the government would take action if any social landlord was contemplating eviction.
