Most tenants of consulting and housing companies have a Scottish lease. The Scottish lease is the tenancy agreement you sign if you become a tenant of Aberdeenshire Council.

You must explain their reasons if they decide not to renew your lease and give you the opportunity to challenge the decision. Most council tenants are safe tenants. A safe lease is a lifetime lease. Accommodation will be rented to you under the terms of this contract: as a secure tenant, you can usually reside in the property for the rest of your life, unless you violate the rental conditions.

If a tenant dies, the lease continues for the surviving tenant. In the case of an introductory lease, some of your rights are limited: it usually takes a year.

You should usually have lived together at least 12 months in the accommodation if you are a couple together or (like brother and sister).
