Have you thought about letting your property? Letting can generate an income, easily meet your mortgage repayments or could be the start of a property portfolio.
At 1-4-Sale, we understand that every landlord is different. Whether you have a large portfolio, or you are looking to rent out a single inherited or investment property, we can adapt our service to match your needs. We offer a full property management that gives the landlord peace of mind and every possible query or repair will be taken care of without causing worry or stress.
We also understand the importance of finding and keeping good tenants. We aim to match the perfect tenant with your property and invest time and effort into understanding the present and future needs of each of our tenants as well as our landlords.
Maximum possible rent
Our local knowledge and strategic marketing will ensure that you receive the highest rent possible.
We would generally advise that a deposit of one month’s rent is paid in advance. Deposits are held by a holding company such as Safe Deposit Scotland for the duration of the tenancy. Deposits are refundable at the end of a tenancy, providing the property and account is in order. Once a tenant has been checked out you are free to carry out an inspection of the property. We would recommend that an inspection be carried out shortly after the tenant vacates, if preferred we can inspect the property on your behalf.
It is the landlord's responsibility to ensure that the property is well maintained and repairs are carried out quickly. As letting agents we will ensure that fully qualified tradesmen carry out required repairs. We will authorise minor repairs to the cost of £150(???), but larger repairs must be authorised by the Landlord.
The Landlord & Tenants Act 1985 states:
It is implied as a convenient in the tenancy agreement that the landlord is:
a) to keep in repair the structure and exterior of the dwelling (including it's drains and gutters and external pipes.
b) to keep in repair and proper working order the installations in the dwelling, for sanctions and for the supply of water, gas and electricity as well as those for space heating and heating water.
Please note that we would normally require two sets of keys for the property, the tenant will receive a set with the other being stored within our office for emergencies. The agreement that is signed does not cover periods when the property is empty.
