Temporary moratorium (pause) on evictions
From 6 September 2022 there is a temporary pause on the enforcement of evictions. This is part of the emergency measures put in place to reduce the impact of the cost crisis on people who rent their home in Scotland.
The pause applies if:
- you gave your tenant a notice on or after 6 September 2022 telling them that you want to end the tenancy
- you gave your tenant a notice before 6 September 2022 telling them that you want to end the tenancy and you did not apply to the Tribunal for an eviction order before 28 October 2022
Tribunal cases which started before 6 September 2022 are not affected.
The eviction pause is expected to remain in force until at least 31 March 2023. The Scottish Ministers can review the emergency measures if the situation changes during this time. The eviction pause could be extended for up to two further 6 month periods.
