Homelessness Section 11 Notice

If you are a landlord or a creditor, you are legally required to tell us when you take action which puts a household at risk of homelessness due to eviction.

This is required under Section 11 of the Homelessness Etc (Scotland) Act 2003. This legislation aims to make sure we know in advance when a household is at risk of being evicted or having their home repossessed. If we know this, we can offer help to households at risk at an early stage and aim to prevent homelessness. 


If you are a landlord (either a private landlord or a registered social landlord), you must tell us when you raise proceedings for possession of a home. You must do this when you submit an application to the Housing and Property Chamber.

You can notify us using the form below:


If you are a creditor, you must tell us when you:

  • Serve a calling up notice requiring discharge of the debt secured.
  • Serve a notice of default calling on the debtor to remedy a default.
  • Apply to the court for a warrant to exercise remedies on default.
  • Raise proceedings to evict a proprietor.
