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). Additionally, a written reference from your employer is required. If you are self-employed, we will ask for an accountant’s reference and most recent set of submitted accounts.
The Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016 commenced on 1 December 2017 and introduced the new 'private residential tenancy'. The purpose of which is to improve security, stability and predictability for you as a tenant. It also provide safeguards for landlords, lenders and investors. The tenancy is open-ended and will last until you wish to leave the let property or your landlord uses one (or more) of 18 grounds for eviction.
We have an obligation to conduct regular inspections of all tenanted accommodation. This is to ensure the property is not in need of repair and that you are looking after the property. We can 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 report any issues via telephone, email or by using our app (available on both Android and Apple iOS by clicking here).
Please ensure your report is made at the earliest possible opportunity in order to minimise any problem that could subsequently arise. Tradespersons will be alerted by the Yendor Homes 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. For example, these could include turning off water at the stopcock or isolating electric/gas supplies at the mains where required.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
You cannot have any pets unless you 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.
We strongly recommend this. You should consider taking out contents insurance as minimum to cover accidental damage to the Landlord’s contents, buildings, fixtures and fittings. The landlord is responsible for insuring the building.
The deposit is usually equal to 4 weeks rent and will be held throughout the tenancy in a government approved deposit scheme. It will be returned at the end of the tenancy subject to the property being left in a good condition. The landlord may choose to file a claim for 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.
As per Scottish legislation, there is no charge applicable for reserving a property.
