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

How do I support a very good Lead Tenant who wants bad Tenant 2 and her abusive partner (not a tenant) out of my property?
We are talking about a large 2 bed high-end apartment, 6 month AST started September 2014, with Good Guy named as Lead Tenant. Lead Tenant’s father is Guarantor (tenant is self-employed) and Council Tax & Utilities are (reportedly) in Lead Tenant’s name.
Bad Tenant has already contravened AST by moving a dog into the property against the wishes of Lead Tenant and breaking a clause expressly forbidding the keeping of any animals. I have received complaints made by neighbours from my (estate) management company and my demand that the dog be rehomed has clearly not been met.
Lead Tenant, Guarantor & Landlord all agree to work together to replace Tenant 2 with a more suitable candidate. How exactly should we go about this?
Lead Tenant fears aggression, non-compliance and possibly reprisal and has notified me today, requesting assistance.
Any helpful suggestions will be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
