Adrian Stalker sets eviction law in context by providing an outline of the development of Scots law in relation to it, and analysing the complex statutory schemes regulating security of tenure. In particular, he examines the prerequisites for obtaining an order for possession under the Housing (Scotland) Acts 1988 and 2001 and an eviction order under the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016.
