Residential Tenancies is the go-to resource for landlord and tenant law as it applies to housing in Scotland. Its accessibility and all-inclusive content make it a useful addition for legal practitioners, students and housing welfare advisors.

This 4th edition has been fully updated to reflect major legal changes in the private rented sector and includes coverage of the recently introduced private residential tenancy, the default lease in the private rented sector. A detailed exposition on the difference between leases and licences on both sides of the Anglo-Scottish border is also covered.

Further content includes:

  • Commentary on the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 and the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016
  • An explanation of the First-tier Tribunal for Scotland (Transfer of Functions of the Private Rented Housing Panel) Regulations 2016 and The First-tier Tribunal for Scotland Housing and Property Chamber (Procedure) Regulations 2016 (both in implementation of the Tribunals (Scotland) Act 2014)
  • Considerations of recent developments relating to matters such as deposits, premiums, rent fixing and letting agent regulation
  • Case law in relation to the tenancy deposit scheme
  • Rules in relation to the safety of private rented accommodation

Lord Hope of Craighead says of the 4th edition: “We must all be grateful to Peter Robson and Malcolm Combe for providing us with such a lively, well informed and highly readable commentary. They really do understand this subject from top to bottom.”

The book is described by leading housing lawyer Dr Nick McKerrell as: “A vital read for law students, practitioners or anyone with an interest in Scottish housing which in reality should be everyone."
