Antisocial Behaviour etc. (Scotland) Act 2004

Part 7 – Antisocial behaviour notices

Part 7 provides powers for a local authority to serve an antisocial behaviour notice on a private landlord where an occupant of or visitor to a house let by the landlord engages in antisocial behaviour at or in the locality of the house. The notice specifies actions the landlord must take to address the antisocial behaviour. A landlord who does not carry out the actions in the notice is guilty of an offence and the local authority may also apply to the sheriff court for an order that no rent is payable or for an order transferring management control to the local authority. The local authority may also take steps to deal with the behaviour described in the notice at the landlord’s expense.
