Property bought with tenant in situ now causing problems with rent and inspections

Hello Joe,
I'm a landlord based in Scotland and my solicitor has told me that under no circumstances can I enter a property to do an inspection without the permission of the tenant, despite the fact that my tenancy agreement states that I have the right to conduct inspections with 24 hrs notice having been given.
My solicitor has said that if I enter the property without the tenants permission I can be prosecuted and get a criminal record. And in Scotland that would mean that I would loose my Landlord Registration from the Local Council and I would therefore be unable to rent my properties out.
Is what my solicitor has told me wrong?

Thank you... Read More
