Model lease update
As we reported back in April, the Scottish Government has made minor changes to its model private residential tenancy (PRT), to reflect the extension of the Cost of Living (Tenant Protection) (Scotland) Act to 30 September 2023. There was a delay in the updates being applied to the tenancy paperwork created by the government’s “create a tenancy” website. Following intervention from SAL the government has now resolved this issue and the website now generates the current version of the model tenancy.
The changes to the model lease made in April 2023 are highlighted in the lease template which you can download here.
