Scottish Law of Leases

Fourth Edition

By Angus McAllister

This fourth edition of Scottish Law of Leases is a comprehensive, up-to-date guide to the Scottish law of landlord and tenant. Written in a clear and readable style, the book covers residential, commercial, and agricultural leases and provides guidance on a wide range of topics, including local authority tenancies, crofts, Scotland's Agricultural Holdings Acts, and valuations of market rent. The fourth edition takes full account of the many recent legislative changes, including the Land Registration (Scotland) Act 2012 and the Long Leases (Scotland) Act 2012. The book details relevant new Scottish case law, including guidance on the effects of the Human Rights Act on tenancy evictions, and it provides expanded coverage of common law and residential leases. It also contains new chapters on repairs and private landlord regulation, including statutory provisions relating to anti-social behavior notices, registration of private landlords, licensing of houses in multiple occupation, overcrowding statutory notices, and tenancy deposit schemes. This highly regarded work provides lawyers and chartered surveyors, as well as students in these and related disciplines, with an invaluable source of reference.
