Notice under the Housing (Scotland) Act 1998 to inform a prospective tenant that they have a short assured tenancy.
An AT5 form must be issued to tenants before they sign their lease to create a short assured tenancy.
The system for private lets changed in December 2017. Private residential tenancies now apply in Scotland and it is no longer possible to create a new short assured tenancy. A short assured tenancy which existed before 1 December 2017 can continue until the landlord or tenant brings it to an end. If the tenancy is renewing on a contractual basis, this can continue to renew under the Housing (Scotland) Act 1988 until either the landlord or the tenant bring it to an end.
