If you are a landlord looking to let your property, come and talk to us. We have pre-approved tenants looking for a property to rent.
The lettings team at Abbey Forth are best placed to look after your property.
We will make arrangements for you to view the property accompanied by one of our viewing agents on a suitable day, including weekends where possible.
After your viewing, you will get the opportunity to apply for the property. We will ask you to complete an online application. We will send you and any other adult to be living in the property an application link via text and email using our application system ‘My rental CV’. If you already have a rental CV account we will send you a permission request link to view your CV. The application process will verify income, employment details/salary, obtain references from current landlords (if appropriate) and a credit report.
Satisfactory references will then be discussed with the landlord in order to select a new tenant.
We will notify all applicants if they have been successful or not.
The successful applicant(s) will be asked for a potential move in date. (Sufficient time must be allowed for the necessary safety checks and preparation of inventory to be carried out, usually 4-5 working days). We will send you a move in confirmation email which provide all the relevant details required for your move in, including all details for your payments, ID required, move in date and process.
Once your deposit has been paid, we will email you your Tenancy Agreement and other documents to be electronically signed prior to your move in date.
The first rent will be due two days prior to the day you move into the property. Your deposit is paid once the move in confirmation has been sent. Deposits are lodged with My Deposit Scotland for the duration of the tenancy. This is held against any claim for damage, cleaning, unpaid bills, including rent, at the end of the tenancy.
An inventory will be carried out using an accredited external inventory company before the tenancy commences. A copy will be sent to you electronically prior to your tenancy commencing and must be returned, with any comments, within 7 days of your move in date.
We will use this to check the property at the end of the tenancy.
We carry out 3 monthly inspections on all our properties. Inspections are carried out to ensure the property is being looked after and maintained to the required level. You will be informed in writing, giving a minimum 48 hours notice when the inspection will be carried out. You do not need to be present as keys will be taken to each property. We appreciate that you may wish to be home during the inspection but please note that inspection dates cannot be rearranged.
You are required to set up a standing order with your bank for the 1st of each month (or before if you wish to pay early).
On the day you will be met at the property by a representative from Abbey Forth to hand over the keys, certificates and go over the property including safety checks, how to top up your boiler pressure, shut off your water and gas and what to do in case of an emergency.
We will give you two sets of keys for the property, which must be returned at the end of your tenancy. We also provide all tenants with our emergency contact details in case of any out of our emergencies.
