Response

In earlier correspondence it was confirmed to you that Crown Estate Scotland (Interim Management) began operation on 1 April 2017, and you were advised to contact The Crown Estate for information prior to this. Therefore, we are suppling information from 1 April 2017 onwards.

For clarity, I have responded to your request using the same numbering points as above.

1.      Crown Estate Scotland (IM) has not breached any of its ongoing tenancy agreements at this time.

2.      Crown Estate Scotland (IM) has not paid out compensation to any tenants due to breaching of tenancy agreements, because as stated previously, CES has not breached any of its tenancy agreements
