Temporary ban on evictions extended until September

Tuesday, 9th March, 2021

TEMPORARY BAN ON EVICTION ORDERS AND LOAN FUNDS TO CONTINUE BEYOND 31 MARCH



The current ban on the enforcement of eviction orders in Scotland has now been extended to 30 September 2021.

Continuing the current ban, which was due to expire on the 31 March, the Health Protection (Coronavirus) (Restrictions and Requirements) (Miscellaneous Amendments) (Scotland) (No. 2) Regulations 2021 mean it will remain unlawful for any person serving a charge for removing or executing a decree for removing from heritable property in any level 3 or 4 areas.

This means that Sheriff Officers are unable to attend a property for the purpose of serving an eviction notice or executing an eviction.

Exceptions are made where the cases are for serious anti-social behaviour, including domestic abuse.


Regulation review


The temporary regulations will be subject to review every 21 days and therefore the general ban on enforcement of eviction orders may be lifted earlier than 30 September. If you are a landlord or tenant need advice please contact us at prestwick@rentolease.co.uk
