Fair Rents (Scotland) Bill or Artificial state manipulation of free market rent?10:34 AM, 6th November 2020

My tenant told me that his father (an electrician) would do a minor repair in the flat he rents. A quote for the job seemed okay so the tenant said he would pay and I could knock it off the rent.
Next month he confirmed work had been done, but cost a bit more and the rental I received was half the usual amount. This repair cost being quite substantial I asked for receipt for the work done and sent an SAE, but have not received a reply nor have I had rent for two months. Phone calls, emails and text messages have been unanswered.
Tenants from other flats have not seen him for quite a while. Do I have the right to investigate by entering into the property as I cannot obtain his consent if he either isn’t cooperating with me or has gone away?
