Thank you for your question.
Here's what you do.
Go online and look at the website of the Private Rented Housing Panel: www.prhpscotland.gov.uk
You will see that the PRHP has power to force the landlord to make repairs. There is a form online. Fill it in and send it off. Generally that is enough to to put the landlord in a position that he will do the repairs. If he doesn't he can be taken to court and the rent can be suspended.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
