Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Act 2003

Section 56:  No right to penal rent, etc.

183.This section makes similar provision in respect of SLDTs and LDTs as does section 48 of the 1991 Act in respect of 1991 Act tenancies. It prevents the landlord from imposing a financial penalty, in excess of the damage actually suffered by the landlord, on the tenant for a breach or non-fulfilment of a term or condition of the lease, and overrides any purported condition in the lease to the contrary.
