Abstract

The second edition of this book by one of Scotland's leading authorities on the recovery of possession of heritable property had an extended gestation period. As explained in its Preface, a first attempt at a new edition – being an update of a predecessor from 2007 – was ready to roll in early 2015. When it became clear that the wholesale reforms to the private rented sector that came to be embodied in the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016 were in the pipeline – not to mention there was to be an almost wholesale transfer of jurisdiction in that sector from the Sheriff Court to the First-tier Tribunal for Scotland (Housing and Property Chamber) – the brave, pragmatic and surely correct decision was made to shelve that manuscript.
