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
