Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Many thanks for your reply. I have had a look at the link you provided, and wish to state the following:
1) I'm not the owner of the flat (My understanding of Landlord), I'm the sole tenant on the lease agreement.
2) I sub-letted the room to the flatmate last year (dec) and there was no written agreement. He pays half the bills and I also informed him that he can give me a months notice whenever he wants to leave. last month i gave him a verbal notice(can be corroborated) and informed him i wanted some space (effectively giving him 4 weeks notice)
3) it appears to me he doesnt want to leave and i dont want him anymore.
Therefore i intend to throw his stuff out at the end of the month and call the police if he tries to gain entry.
With the picture made clearer, what do you suggest i do?
Looking forward to your reply.
