FAQs

What Is A Tenancy Agreement?

Your property will be let using an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement, usually for a period of six to twelve months. If your property is in Scotland it will be let using the Private Residential Tenancy Agreement, which has no contract length. We will sign the Tenancy Agreement on behalf of the landlord and ensure it is signed by the tenant.

Who Pays For Bills?

Once the tenant has moved in, we will email the council, it is always advisable that you contact the council as well to ensure that your liability has ended. With electric/gas/water we will provide meter readings (where possible) to the tenants and ask that they set up their accounts. The ultimate responsibility is with the tenants to set up their bills however we will do all we can to ensure they set up their accounts.

When the tenants vacate they will advise the providers that they are vacating and the council tax will be placed back into your name as landlords are responsible for the void periods.

What Is An Emergency Repair?

Our out of hours service will instruct a local contractor to attend to an emergency and any invoices will be payable through the rental income. The out of hours team will only instruct works in an emergency situation, their main aim to ensure the limitation of damage to your property and we will always act in your best interests. A report will be provided and your lettings assistant will be in touch to advise.
