Creating a tenancy

A tenancy agreement is a contract between you and your tenant. It covers things like safety, payment of rent and house rules.  As a landlord, you must give your tenant all the terms of their Private Residential Tenancy in writing. If you don't you'll be breaking the law. Most private tenancies which started on or after 1 December 2017 will be Private Residential Tenancies. Information about Private Residential Tenancies can be found in the Scottish Government's guidance for landlords 

Create a tenancy using the Model Private Residential Tenancy Agreement Template - with this tenancy agreement you must provide the Easy Read Notes
