Changes to Scottish Secure Tenancy Rights introduced by the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014

All Glen Oaks' tenants signed a Scottish Secure Tenancy Agreement when they took up their tenancy with us.

The Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 has introduced a number of significant changes to the Scottish Secure Tenancy Agreement which will affect the rights of tenants.  We will be writing to all of our tenants individually before                  1 November 2018 to explain the changes.

The changes include new notification and residency requirements for joint tenancy, assignation, sub-letting and successions when the provisions of the Act come into force.  It's very important that tenants make sure they let us know about any changes to their household.  This includes telling us about anyone who has previously moved in with you that you haven't already told us about, and when anyone moves into or out of your home in the future (at the time they do so).

If you are unsure about whether you have told us about anyone who has moved into your home let us know now - we will acknowledge receipt of your notification.
