Viewing a 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 our diaries allow.



Everyone who has viewed will get the opportunity to apply for the property. We would ask you to complete our online application. We will send you and any other adult to be living in the property an application link via text and email. 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.

Once we have come to this decision, we will notify all applicants if they have been successful or not. The successful applicant(s) will then 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 we look at 4-5 working days). We will then 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 over to 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 with your deposit being already 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 to you prior to your tenancy commencing and must be returned, with any comments, within 7 days of your move in date.

We then 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 given a minimum 48 hours notice when the inspection will be carried out, you do not need to be present, and keys will be taken to each property.  



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).


Move in

On the day you will be met at the property by a representative from Abbey Forth to hand over the keys and go over the property including safety checks, how to top up your boiler pressure, shut off your water and gas.

We will give you two sets of keys for the property, which must be returned at the end of your tenancy. You will also be provided with emergency contact details in case of any out of our emergencies.
