Long Leases (Scotland) Act 2012

Section 55: Claim for additional payment: reference to Lands Tribunal

231.This section applies in cases where no agreement has been reached under section 53 or section 54.

232.Subsection (1) gives both the former tenant and the former landlord the right to refer any matter relating to a claim for an additional payment to the Lands Tribunal.

233.Subsection (2) gives the Lands Tribunal a wide discretion to determine the matter and make such order as it thinks fit.

234.Subsection (3) requires the Lands Tribunal to provide the former tenant with the option of paying by instalments in accordance with the statutory instalment scheme if the additional payment is fixed at £50 or more. This subsection makes certain amendments to the instalment scheme to take account of the fact that no instalment document will be served on the former tenant in such circumstances.

235.Subsection (4) provides that all references to the Lands Tribunal must be made within 5 years of the appointed day.
