I only just mentioned on the blog the other day about watching out for confirmation soon on Tenancy Deposit Schemes. It has just arrived yesterday as announced on the Scottish Government website.
Regulations governing the approval of a national Tenancy Deposit Scheme were laid in the Scottish Parliament and the regulations are expected to become law in March. You can find out more details via the link to the website below:
If you have any questions or queries on how this will affect you please contact Clan Gordon on 0131 334 3060.

This is something we should not forget if we are involved in the letting business in Scotland. A Tenancy Deposit Scheme will be introduced in Scotland and probably this year. Obviously, the elections may get in the way of this but whichever party gets in is likely to go ahead with a scheme of some sort. They say it will be better than the ones in England which are causing so many problems for landlords but it sounds very similar to us. You can have a look for yourself at the consultation responses - http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Publications/2010/11/30093612/0

Edinburgh Council may not be able to organise trams very efficiently, or at all now, but they have been at the forefront when it comes to local authorities in Scotland helping landlords AND tenants. The team of housing officers and other staff who manage landlord registration, HMO licensing and their advice service Letwise are fantastic: approachable, helpful and unbiased whether dealing with landlords agents or tenants.
Letwise produces a regular publication called Inside Letting. Clan Gordon has been a member of the board which produces and edits the magazine since last year. The magazine was produced and posted out but it made sense to change this in today’s digital age to an online magazine and the results are great.
The board meet a month or so before publication and it is planned to do one quarterly. The last one was produced in September 2010 and yesterday we had a look at the content for one coming out in December. As well as lots of handy features on topical issues this issue will cover the new Housing Bill which follows on from the recent Review of the Private Rented Sector, the Landlord Boiler Scrappage Scheme announced here this week and an update on landlord registration.
I will make sure the new issue is launched on this blog....

We also asked our clients to tell us why they would recommend us- here are a couple of samples:
“I have been very impressed with the professional approach to letting the property I reside in. I have found all the Clan Gordon representatives approachable and personable, especially when we have had maintenance issues.” - from one of our Tenants in a West End flat
“Very helpful polite and knowledgeable. Personal service and nothing is too much trouble. Better than a larger agency where you are just a number. I came to Clan Gordon through a recommendation and would have no hesitation in recommending them.” - from the Landlord of a Corstorphine flat
