Other Private Tenancy Applications

From 1 December 2017 most types of legal applications about private sector tenancies will be dealt with by the Housing and Property Chamber, rather than the Sheriff Court. Applications about tenancies of social landlords (local authorities, and Registered Social Landlords such as housing associations) must continue to apply to their local Sheriff Court.

This section covers the remaining application types that are not catered for elsewhere on the site. Below is a list of the applications that should be made using the form and guidance available from the menu on the right.

If you do not see the type of application you wish to make in this list, you should go back to the Apply to the Tribunal page and check the main list of application types. Clicking on the relevant Rule link will take you to the correct page.
