Private Tenancies Bill tough on anti-social behaviour

Housing Minister Margaret Burgess has reaffirmed that anti-social behaviour is grounds for eviction under the new Private Tenancies Bill.

During a Q&A with Scottish landlords to mark National Landlords Day last week, Margaret Burgess said the Private Tenancies Bill will enable landlords to manage their property and deal with anti-social behaviour.

“Anti-social behaviour is unacceptable, which is why this Bill outlines clearly that it is grounds for eviction,” said Mrs Burgess. “Landlords will still be able to manage their property and, in the worst cases, can seek to evict tenants on these grounds just as they do now. In addition, if a tenant refuses to leave, the eviction case will then go to the Housing Tribunal – a new form of redress that landlords have long called for and supported. This will be a fair, efficient and accessible process for both landlords and tenants.”

The Government says that the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Bill will protect 700,000 people from the prospect of unforeseen and unfair eviction and unpredictability over rent increases, as well as ensuring the sector is attractive to investors, with better management and regulation.
