Our friendly team of dedicated professionals are ready to provide you with expert advice and support you at all times.
We can help you find:
Booking a viewing is simple and can be done anytime online or over the phone. We’ll work around you in order to agree a suitable time.
We provide quality accommodation and ensure compliance with the latest legislation, regularly inspecting properties.
We will ask for your address history for the last three years and complete a credit check on each individual tenant. We will also require a reference from your existing Landlord or Letting Agent (if you are currently renting) as well as a written reference from your employer. If you are self-employed, we will ask for an accountant’s reference and most recent set of submitted accounts.
The tenancy system establishes the legal agreement between tenant and landlord, and is an important part of making sure the private rented sector functions well.
On 1 December 2017 a new type of tenancy - the private residential tenancy - came into force, replacing the assured and short assured tenancy agreements for all new tenancies.
We have an obligation to conduct regular inspections of all tenanted accommodation. This is to ensure the property is not in need of repair, that you are looking after the property and discuss any problems you may be experiencing. You will be given notification when an inspection is due to be conducted.
In the event of maintenance being required please telephone us at the earliest possible time in order to minimise any problem that could subsequently arise. Trades persons will be alerted by the Agent and dependent upon the nature and urgency of the task will respond accordingly. Simple precautionary procedures should then be taken by the tenant to prevent any additional problem arising e.g. turn off water at the stopcock if necessary, isolate electric or gas supplies at the mains where required.
You cannot have any pets unless we have permission from the landlord/ourselves in writing. You must consult us prior to obtaining a pet and submit a written request to have a pet stating age/type/breed.
YES! You should consider taking out contents insurance to cover accidental damage to the Landlord’s contents, buildings, fixtures and fittings. The landlord is responsible for insuring the building.
The Deposit normally equates to 5 weeks rent and will be held throughout the tenancy in a government approved deposit scheme and will be returned at the end of the tenancy subject to the property being left in a good condition without any claim for potential damages beyond fair wear and tear.
As a tenant you are responsible for ensuring the rent is paid in full and on time. We have facilities to enable you to establish a standing order which will mean payments are paid directly from your bank to our designated account. You will need to cancel the standing order before leaving the property.
Utility bills, including Council Tax is your responsibility unless stated otherwise in the tenancy agreement. You will need to choose your supplier upon moving in and ensure accounts are closed when you vacate.
David has been such a great support for my partner and I during the process of buying our first property. He was always on hand for any questions that we had, and nothing was ever a bother. We began house hunting just after the first Lockdown, and David always made sure that we and his clients were as safe as possible during property viewings. If I was ever looking to buy or sell a house again, I would have no hesitation in choosing Strathavon Properties!
Would definitely recommend Strathavon Properties. David was brilliant throughout the process of selling my house, which sold in less than 24 hours! He helped make what I felt was a stressful time feel so much easier which was really appreciated.
David - Thanks for the help in marketing and letting my property.
Excellent advice, a seamless process and new tenants quickly identified.
Would absolutely use Strathavon Properties in the future
Thanks for all your hard work David, you went above and beyond - fabulous service from start to finish.
Our property had been on the market for seven months with other estate agents when a friend recommended Strathavon Properties. We are so glad that they did! Within five days of meeting David, we sold our house! The entire process was seamless from start to finish. David took care of everything on our behalf and kept us informed throughout. A very professional service from an agent who clearly has excellent knowledge of the local area. Thank you Strathavon Properties!
What a star. No hassle from David. Nothing was a bother. Kept us updated every step. Went above and beyond so service was simply excellent. I could go on and on along similar lines but I think you’ll get the idea from this. Thanks again David, you helped us keep our sanity through all of this.
