Citizens Advice Scotland has welcomed the Scottish Government's intention to ban private renter sector evictions for six months.
CAS Social Justice spokesperson Mhoraig Green said,
"This is another necessary and very welcome step by the Scottish government, which will protect tenants through the period of the COVID19 crisis.
"Making people homeless at this time makes no sense in social, economic or public health terms. We are sure that the vast majority of private landlords would agree and would not be looking to evict their tenants, but this law will stop the small minority who might have done."
