The generally accepted view on the new Private Residential Tenancy in Scotland is that the tenant can end the tenancy by giving 28 days notice at anytime after the the start of the tenancy. Having read the relevant legislation (Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016) I am confused.
Chapter 2, Section 49 Paragraph 3b (1) states that the end of the notice period is ‘such number of days after it begins as the landlord and tenant have validly agreed between them’ (2) states ‘if there is no such valid agreement , 28 days after it begins’.
Does this mean that the notice period is 28 days only if the there is no other agreement between landlord and Tenant? And a different number of days could be agreed in the lease document?
