Section 72 – Appeals against orders under section 71

192.Section 72 provides that an appeal against a decision by a sheriff on an application for an order as to rental income shall be made to the sheriff principal within 21 days, and that the sheriff principal’s decision is final. Where a landlord appeals against a decision to make an order, the landlord must give notice to the tenant of any matters which are prescribed by the Scottish Ministers in regulations. If the landlord does not give such notice, or in other circumstances which may be specified by the Scottish Ministers in regulations, the sheriff principal must not require the tenant to pay any sums which would have been due but for the making of the order. The regulations may include provisions as to procedures and may also impose obligations on landlords. These regulations are subject to negative resolution procedure.
