Post Reasons Why Landlords Should Use A Letting Agents Edinburgh

Traditionally the UK has had a relatively small PRS however the residential landscape in the UK is changing, moving closer to that of the rest of Europe where renting is the norm. Alongside this growth in the PRS, regulation is imminent and the Scottish government, in particular, is taking steps to tighten up legislation regarding the governance of letting agents and landlords and specifically relating to safety within rented properties. Furthermore, as rents rise as demand far outstrips supply, it is tricky for landlords to keep on top of rental potential of their properties. This is why landlords should recruit a letting agent to take care of their residential property investments. Lettings agents Edinburgh will ensure the maximum rent is achieved, will ensure the property complies with the required standards in terms of specification and electrical and gas safety and will ensure relationships with tenants are kept in order, so that the landlord’s journey is as smooth as possible.
