Scotland has moved beyond Level 0 and there is no eviction ban for areas in Level 2 or lower. All landlords must follow the right processes and serve valid notices on tenants.

Due to coronavirus, there are some changes to the eviction processes still in place until 31 March 2022:

  • some notices have longer notice periods of up to 6 months, depending on the ground
  • landlords must show it is reasonable to evict a tenant based on ground used within the notice

If you are concerned that you are in difficulty or are about to be in difficulty with rent payments, please contact your Neighbourhood Housing Office and ask to speak to your Neighbourhood Coach who will be pleased to assist you. The Citizens Advice Bureau can also assist you if you are having difficulty keeping up to date with your rent payments.

You can obtain independent legal advice from East Ayrshire Citizens Advice, Shelter Scotland.
