This chapter explores the role of residential tenures in Scotland during the twentieth century. There were three principal forms of housing then, as now, in Scotland: owner occupancy, private renting, and social renting. Each of these forms of tenure continues to house significant numbers of citizens. From a legal perspective, these tenures involve a degree of regulation. The involvement of the national and the local state in the process of regulation was largely absent from housing at the start of the last century. This chapter also considers residential tenancies, including private-sector tenancies such as assured tenancies, short assured tenancies, protected tenancies, Part VII tenancies, tied tenancies, contractual tenancies; and social rented tenancies such as Scottish secure tenancies. Finally, it discusses the relationship between secure tenancies and short secure tenancies, conversion of a secure tenancy to a short secure tenancy and vice versa, the rights and obligations of landlords and tenants, and mobile homes.
