A full complement of financial checks and referencing ensures peace of mind for our landlords. We provide a detailed profile of potential tenants so that you can make an informed choice.
It is very important to create an accurate report depicting the condition of your property prior to every tenancy. The onus is on us to provide evidence of tenant liability in the cases of damage or if the tenant disputes a claim against their deposit. Our clear, time and date stamped photographic inventories help to safeguard your investment.
We collect and lodge tenant deposits with the Scottish Government approved Letting Protection Service. Deposit repayment administration including the mediation of any tenant disputes will be dealt with on your behalf.
Monthly rental payments are collected from the tenant and paid out to our landlords promptly. We liaise directly with tenants if they fall into arrears and work with them to resolve any issues.
The ongoing care of your property is our upmost priority. We arrange periodic maintenance inspection visits, create mid-term condition reports and manage any repairs in a prompt fashion. Your input is requested prior to instructing any works, regardless of how minor.
