Breaking down the new legislation and what it means for Scottish Landlords

1 Min

Did you know in December last year, major changes came into effect for all private renters in Scotland?

The new ‘private residential tenancy’ means leases will be open-ended and tenants will have the option to end their lease giving only 28 days’ notice if they have been in the property for less than six months.

Rentir is a long term letting agency that offer short term flexible solutions to landlords worried about these new regulations, and who want to gain a better yield on their property.

For example, if your long-term tenant decides to leave at short notice, Rentir will (through their partnership with the premium holiday let company BNBbuddy) be ready to launch your property for short term rental, meaning less risk due to open-ended contracts.

In other words, instead of losing out on a few months rent, you’ll be able to profit from the void period in-between tenants by doing short-term lets.Unlike other estate agents, Rentir offer 24/7 support for both landlords, tenants and guests.

For a free appraisal and chance to discuss letting your property and maximising your revenue, Tel: 0131 341 4330 (Edinburgh) or 0141 413 5380 (Glasgow)or visit
