In Scotland the temporary ban on evictions, other than anti-social behaviour cases, is still ongoing, in addition to changes in Capital Gains Tax thresholds, reporting rules and increasing property values – all matters which private landlords and letting agents should be aware of, or they may face expensive fees.
Thorntons’ Dispute Resolution specialists Gillian Buchanan and Kirsty Waughman, alongside Property Partner Andrew Kirkhope, are hosting a free webinar from 9.30am on Wednesday 5 May 2021 to update private landlords and letting agents on current issues.
The one hour event, which includes an online Q&A session, will cover the emergency measures currently affecting the private rental sector, Capital Gains Tax overview and the increase in property values, as well as a cautionary tale about wrongful termination which demonstrates the costs associated with evicting a tenant under false pretences.
Gillian Buchanan, Dispute Resolution Partner at Thorntons, said: “This event will provide an opportunity to gain expert legal insight on dealing with landlord and tenant issues. We hope to arm attendees with practical advice which should help to protect their property portfolios.”
