Help with Notice to quit in Scotland

Hi M
Law in Scotland only allows for a Sheriff to evict a tenant. The s33 and associated notices only end the contractual tenancy and allow you to make an application to the court for eviction. Even after the Sheriff grants decree, assuming he does, The Sheriff Officer has to apply to the court for consent to carry out the court's instruction. Given the tenant has a right of appeal and the further action could and likely will add around 4-6 weeks to the action if granted. Court diaries vary but expect 6-8 weeks for a 1st hearing in Edinburgh or Glasgow.
