We aim to secure a viewing appointment at a time that suits you. A fully qualified property professional will accompany you and will have detailed knowledge of the property including the council tax band, estimated energy prices, school catchment areas, local transport and nearby amenities.
Update: Due to Covid 19 we are offering video viewings and will have limited private viewings. Please kindly wear a face mask when viewing privately and be mindful of social distancing measures.

We are always keeping our team up to date with new guidelines, new legislations and the current leasing legal documentation required by The Scottish Government.
Our professional approach means that our tenants know clearly where they stand and we find our tenants come back to us again and again, because they know we are reliable and trust-worthy.

Deposit Security and Inventory
A security deposit will be required when you sign up for one of our properties.
Tenancy Deposit Schemes (Scotland) Regulation 2011 requires all security deposit to be held by a Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS).
We use: My Deposit Scotland
Rent is paid monthly in advance and your lease documents will provide you with all the information you need regarding rental payments.
We provide a full Inventory and Schedule of Condition document. This is an essential document which provides a written and photographic record of the property and it’s contents at the beginning of the tenancy. It contains details in full on all fixtures, fittings and contents of the property and it will be checked after the tenancy expires.
