Thank you for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland and will help you with this.
Does your Scottish Secure Tenancy Agreement cover the garden ground? If so there is contract and they can't take your garden away without your consent. Can you let me know what the tenancy agreement says?
Happy to discuss further.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.

Thanks. They can't take the garden off you without your agreement unless there is anything else in the SSTA that allows them to do so and I doubt there is.
