Landlord Legal Advice - How to Evict a Tenant


If you are a landlord, do you know how to evict a tenant? It is not enough to simply serve eviction notices on a tenant in order to repossess a property. Before a landlord can recover possession (evict a tenant), they must obtain a Tribunal order to eject the tenant. Our free legal guide looks at the steps which must be followed when raising an action on your behalf together with an estimate of the costs involved.

Our guide covers:

  • Stage One – the application to the First-tier Tribunal (Housing and Property Chamber)
  • Stage Two – the Case Management Discussion
  • Stage Three – the hearing
  • Costs for stage one to three
  • Stage Four – the eviction
  • Estimated costs for stage four including Sheriff Officers fees

Our experienced lawyers and paralegals from our First-tier Tribunal team represent landlords and letting agents in the First-tier Tribunal (Housing and Property Chamber) on a daily basis throughout Scotland and are recognised as experts in their field. We are here to make this process as pain-free as possible for landlords and letting agents and can help every step of the way.

We recognise that no eviction or home repossession is straightforward and prior to taking action we will discuss costs and prospects of success to ensure that you are fully informed.

Written by our housing experts in our Glasgow and Edinburgh offices, you can access the free legal guide on completion of the contact form opposite – it is intended to help you understand exactly how to evict a tenant in Scotland and hopefully ensure the process is as simple and successful as possible.
