Assuming this is a short assured tenancy which most were at that time you need to serve a notice to quit along with an AT6 form, the current version being the one here: https://www.gov.scot/publications/form-at6/
A notice to quit is written notice that a landlord wants to end your tenancy and wants the tenant to move out of the home.
A notice to quit is only valid if it:
is in writing
tells you how long the notice is. If you want the house back to sell it the notice is currently 6 months under coronavirus rules
ties in with the 'ish date' (the date the tenancy agreement ends which will be an anniversary date of the start of the lease, usually 6 months or a year depending on what the initial length of the lease was)
makes it clear that even when the notice runs out the landlord still has to get an order from the Tribunal before the tenant has to leave
tells the tenant that s/he can get independent advice, and tells him or her where they can get it
I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything. I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question if it will help you further.
