Private Residential Tenancy Agreement

You and your client can conclude this agreement by signing: you and your client can either personally sign the contracts or reserve both copies for your client to sign them. In accordance with the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016, the Private Residential Tenancy (PRT) has replaced previously guaranteed and short-term guaranteed leases for all new leases in Scotland. Any new lease agreement beginning on December 1 or after December 1 must be made on a TRP if it is leased to an individual (or co-owner) who is his only house or main house, and this is not one of the excluded properties (listed in Schedule 1 of the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016). Excluded properties include stores, licensed premises, farms, vacation homeowners or resident owners. Owners must provide a copy of one of these documents at the same time as the PRT agreement.
