Letting Process for Tenants

Glasgow Property Lettings Process for Tenants

Renting a flat in Scotland? The properties that we have available to rent can be viewed on our Tenants page.

If you don’t see anything suitable for you at present you can register and we will keep you informed of new properties that become available.

The Glasgow property lettings process for renting a flat in Scotland is as follows:

Viewing a Property

If you see a property you are interested in renting, email or call us to arrange to view it. We have flexible viewing times to allow you to when most suitable for you. All properties advertised by us conform to the Repairing Standard.

Properties are viewed “as seen” in terms of décor and furnishings and the Landlord is under no obligation to change anything related to these once the lease is signed.

Tenant Application Process

To apply for a property please email us and we will send you application details. Information that we will normally require from you for each prospective tenant is –

  • Completed and signed application form
    Photographic id (e.g. Passport / Driving License)
  • Proof of address (e.g. Bank Statement / Utility Bill)
  • Reference from a current or previous landlord or letting agent
  • Reference from employer (if applicable)

We will also require a holding deposit at this time and, once received will keep the property for you while the application process completes. This sum is fully refundable to you up to the signing of leases and, once your application is complete, the sum is offset from the full deposit amount.

Tenant Guarantor

In certain cases, we may require a Guarantor in order to complete your application for renting a flat. The guarantor will sign the lease agreement and we will require their contact details.

Deposit

A deposit will be taken which usually amounts to a month to six weeks rental equivalent for that property. This sum will be lodged with one of the approved deposit schemes for the duration of the tenancy.

Denancy Agreement

Any tenancy agreement in Scotland from 2018 will be a Private Residential Tenancy (PRT). This will be signed by all occupants of the property over the age of 18. We will go through the PRT in detail with you prior to signing but you may wish to seek independent advice.

Insurance

The landlord is responsible for ensuring the building and its own contents but it is the tenant’s responsibility to ensure their own belongings. You may wish also to insure against any accidental damage to the landlord’s furnishings. The landlord or agent is not responsible for any loss or damage to the tenant’s belongings.

FREE RENTAL EVALUATION

We will give you a free desktop evaluation of your rental property by the next working day after enquiry and can visit property at your earliest convenience to give full valuation and appraisal.

TESTIMONIALS

“I have been using John at JLC Property for over a year now, to manage four of our properties and have been impressed with the level of service so much so that we have now given him a fifth property to take care of. They have always paid our money on the agreed date every month and taken care of everything. I have no hesitation in recommending their services.”

WILLIAM

Scottish Based Landlord and Investor

“I was new to letting property and so was not familiar with the regulations or process. JLC Property were very helpful in talking me through this and and in helping get my property ready to rent very quickly. There was also no charge to me until my property was tenanted. I would highly recommend their service to any other landlord seeking a helpful and efficient Letting Agent.”
