Landlord Information

Welcome to our Landlord Information page. We will provide some information that we hope will be helpful to you in determining if your property is ready to be brought to us for advertising at this time or if it would be best to sort out a few details first. Not only will we give some insight into the things we look at but we will also provide contact details for tradesmen and services that can help you prepare your property for the letting market. We hope you find this information valuable and helpful.

A Few Questions

In order to comply with the Building Standards Regulation a building has to be windproof and weathertight. Her are a few questions to ask yourself when appraising your property for compliance:

1) Is it windproof? For instance, can you feel a draught around the windows or does the wind make noise?

2) Is it water tight? Look around for damp patches or water stains on the wall/ceiling/floor. Do you smell mould or moisture?

These two are the biggest issues we find when reviewing a flat for advertising and these need to be sorted out before we can legally advertise your property.

You can also bear in mind structural integrity (ceiling, walls, flooring and fixtures) when appraising your property for letting readiness. Another important item to check would be making sure your smoke detectors are in good condition and working order. If they need replaced, legislation states that all new installations after 3 September 2007 must be mains powered. We at Rothesay Property Services are fully conversant with all current legislation regarding the letting of residential properties and as part of our service as a managing agent we are happy to advise/guide and where possible arange all that is required to become a landlord. Providing your property is windproof and weathertight and so meets with the Building Standards Regulation, we are happy to advertise your property in our window, on our website, and Facebook Page free of charge.

General Information

The above items are the most critical issues that need dealt with before we can take you onto our books and advertise your property. The other area that we look at is decorating. Sometimes there are things needing done that arre readily apparent and we urge you to go ahead and sort them out before we view your property. However, we can help you to determine if anything could be done on an effort to make your property more attractive for viewing. Please bear in mind that we reserve the right (please see our contract for details) to charge an admin fee for any services rendered in helping you prepare your property for letting. PLEASE NOTE: If there is a communal issue at hand, then Rothesay Property Services cannot issue any instructions to tradesmen in these situations. We would direct your attention below to our Tradesmen section for their contact details which is all we can provide in the way of help in these matters. our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause but all communal issues must be agreed upon and paid by all the owners.
