    Managing Your Property

    Littlejohns offers a complete management service for your property.

    From marketing your property, vetting prospective tenants, and regular inspections, to on-going maintenance and rent collection – we can look after it all.

    If you’re looking to purchase a buy-to-let, we can provide you with expert guidance and can even oversee and organise the upgrading of your property.

    General Information

    Thinking of investing in a property for rental income, upgrading your exisiting property or increasing your rental capacity? Whatever your plans for the future, Littlejohns can offer advice and guidance.

    Unfortunately we are not able to advise you on the tax implications of letting your property. Information is available from the Inland Revenue.

    If you are resident overseas you will need to complete a NRL1 form to register your status with the Inland Revenue.

  • Free, no-obligation rental valuation

    We'll look after your property

    During a tenancy we perform a number of periodic inspections and we are also on hand to deal with any maintenance problems that may arise.

    We can deal with maintenance problems reported by the tenant, using our own tradespeople. Alternatively, if your property is managed by a factor we can refer relevant issues to them. In addition Littlejohns provides an emergency helpline for all landlords and tenants which operates round the clock 365 days of the year.

    Landlords are required by law to be registered

    It is now an offence for landlords to let a property without having applied to be registered. Landlords could face a fine or have their rent withheld if they avoid registering.

    The Fee to register as a landlord is £55.00 with an additional £11.00 for each property owned. There is a fee for each person who has to be registered, to cover the costs of checking that he or she is ‘fit and proper’ to let property.

    If you add a joint owner to your application, who has not already applied for registration, their fee is subject to 100% discount, so you do not have to pay anything for them.

    You can register online (attracting a 10% discount) at Landlord Registration Scotland.  If you apply on line you will be asked for the Agents Registration Number – in our case it is:

    Edinburgh –     00349/230/08200
    East Lothian – 00349/210/08200
    Midlothian –    00349/290/08200

    Can Littlejohns register for you?

    It is the responsibility of the landlord to register.  We will not hold the relevant information required on individual landlords to be able to assist with this application.

    HMO Properties

    If you have a property with an HMO Licence then your details will be transferred free of charge onto the Register – if you have additional non HMO properties then you must register these.

    Renewal

    The renewal fee which is payable 3 years from your registration has not been changed.

  • We visit your property and give you a free no-obligation valuation.
  • We market your property on our website, through letting websites, in-house and externally.
  • We conduct all viewings by potential tenants on your behalf.
  • We vet prospective tenants thoroughly and handle their deposit.
