The Rental Process

Arranging a viewing

Found a property you like the look of? Contact us to arrange an appointment.

Our viewing times are Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and we can provide transport from our office to any properties you wish to view.

Utility accounts

We will arrange for your gas, electricity and council tax accounts to be set up when you move in. This means that bills can be sent to you directly until you move out, when we will arrange for accounts to be closed.

Don’t forget that if you are a full-time student you may be exempt from paying council tax. You should contact the Council’s Department of Revenues and Benefits to find out more.

Rent

The following are the details of how you will be required to set up the payment of the monthly rent.

  • Rent is payable monthly in advance.
  • The first month’s rent must be paid with cleared funds on your entry date.
  • You will need to set up a standing order from your account to pay your monthly rent

 

Deposit

Once you have decided on your property and it has been secured then the deposit will become payable.

The Deposit is as follows:

  • Security deposit is equivalent to one month’s rent plus £200. This will be held by Safedeposits Scotland under the Tenancy Deposit Scheme and returned to you at the end of the tenancy provided that all is satisfactory with the property.

Securing a property

Once you have decided on the property you would like to rent we will need some details from you so that we can set up your tenancy agreement.

You will need to provide us with:

  • two references
  • credit check
  • photo ID
  • the Deposit

Once we have all the necessary information we will arrange an entry date with you.
