  • COVID-19 Irritancy Restrictions Extended Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, tenants under a commercial lease could be evicted for non-payment of rent on as little as 14 days’ notice using irritancy provisions. In an effort to assist commercial tenants, the Scottish Government extended that notice period from 14 days to 14 weeks. The extension was due to stay in place until 30 September 2020.
