landlords

FBR are registered agents in the Scottish Borders, East Lothian, Aberdeen City, Fife, Perth and Kinross.
We are also accredited with Landlord Accreditation Scotland (LAS).

We provide two types of service for landlords wishing to rent out a property: let only, and a managed service. The aim is to manage your relationship with your tenant smoothly and reliably. All our landlords must register with Landlord Registration Scotland.

FBR’s let only service includes:

  • Assessing the vacant property for possible ‘Repairing Standard’ issues and rental valuation
  • Advertising on our website
  • Preparing adverts for local newspapers – charged separately
  • Processing applications from prospective tenants
  • Arranging viewings and references
  • Preparing pre-tenancy documents and the Tenancy Agreement
  • Preparing a full photographic inventory
  • Arranging the check-in with the new tenant
  • Lodging the deposit with Tenancy Deposit Scheme

We will let the property, and your tenant will deal directly with you during the tenancy, until such time as the tenant gives notice to leave. We will then arrange a pre-leaving check comparing the condition of the property with the original inventory.

FBR’s managed service includes:

  • Assessing the vacant property for possible ‘Repairing Standard’ issues and rental valuation
