Thank you for your question. If the tenancy agreement doesn’t provide otherwise, then it will renew automatically for the same period again. This is called tacit relocation in Scots law. That would mean you would have to give two months notice after month 4 of the repeated period. However, if the tenant is in breach of the lease and you seek to terminate the lease and recover possession because of the breach, the natural termination date (called the ish) is irrelevant. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
It should be a matter of checking the lease and if the tenant is liable under the lease for factors fees then you are right. You can give notice to quit of 28 days and AT6 and take him to court for an order for recovery of the property of he refuses to leave. If he is right then you can only terminate by giving two months notice prior to the natural expiry of the lease.
