Coronavirus (Scotland) (No.2) Act 2020 Student Accommodation

The Coronavirus (Scotland) (No.2) Act 2020 which makes provisions in relation to tenancies for students in halls of residence and Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) has come into force. There is a 7 day notice period for those who have already entered into a student residential tenancy agreement and have occupied the property; and a 28 day notice period for those who have already entered into a student residential tenancy but have not yet occupied the property and agreements entered into while the Act is in force. Students can only use notice periods for COVID-19 specific reasons. Students should contact their college, university or Purpose Built Student accommodation provider if they wish to give notice.
