Information for Landlords

 

We provide property owners with two options - 

 

Full Management or Let Only services.

 

Full Management  

 

When an application is made for a tenancy, we carry out thorough referencing which checks the previous tenancy history, employment situation and domestic circumstances. A Guarantor may be required to 'underwrite' the tenancy. Students are asked to provide Guarantors.

 

We advertise with Letting Web, Zoopla and Prime Location.

We will arrange viewings at the property at times to suit prospective tenants and always try to be as flexible as possible with appointments, which can include evenings and weekends.

 

A deposit and the first month's rent are collected from the tenant immediately prior to the move-in date. The deposit is usually equivalent to a month's rent but can be increased by up to 50% if the property is deemed to warrant a higher deposit. Deposits are held with Safe Deposit Scotland.

 

For repairs and maintenance, we have a range of trusted contractors. Owners who prefer to use their own contractors are required to confirm the contractors are properly qualified. The owner accepts full responsibility of any works carried out.

 

Council Tax will be notified of any new tenancy. Utilities are the owners and new tenants’ responsibility but we will take entry readings.

 

A monthly statement will be provided and should be retains as your end of year accounts. 

 

Overseas landlords should normally apply for a non-resident approval number from HMRC for information visit  www.hmrc.gov.uk/cnr/nr_landlords.htm

 

 

 

Let Only service.

 

For landlords who wish to deal with their own tenancy and property management, we provide a service where we advertise the property, carry out viewings and referencing and move in the new tenant.

A lease and full inspection pack will be prepared.
