Existing tenancies

Any short assured or assured tenancy which existed before 1 December 2017 will continue until either you or your landlord bring it to an end. If your short assured tenancy is renewing on a contractual basis, this can continue to renew under the Housing (Scotland) Act 1988 until either you or your landlord bring it to an end. For information about other types of tenancy, see 'Renting a Property'.
