• Securing a suitable tenant for your property via internet and window advertising. All viewings are accompanied by a member of staff.

Void Periods
Our management does not facilitate any income for the property while it is untenanted.
Council tax, gas and electricity supplies are the Landlord’s responsibility while the property is vacant and will be liable for payment of any bills between Tenants.
Rents are collected on a monthly basis, however, should for any reason the rent be either late or an insufficient amount paid by the tenant, the landlord should have sufficient funds to enable mortgage payments to be made. Your mortgage payment is not our responsibility. Should you have rent guarantee insurance, this will cover any unpaid rent while a tenant is in situ. Rent guarantee is paid in arrears.
Monthly statements will be produced and sent via email or post if preferred. If you require an annual statement this will be an additional £10 + vat per property.
Our fees are all subject to VAT at the current rate imposed.
Should you decide to sell the property, you must make us aware of time scales to allow us to give the tenant appropriate Notice to either vacate or continue on as an existing tenant for the new owner.
The Landlord agrees to indemnify us as an Agent against any costs, expenses or liabilities incurred or imposed on us provided that they were incurred on their behalf in pursuit of our normal duties. We recommend that Landlords should insure their properties in respect of such matters for the full term of any given Tenancy.
Every endeavour will be made to ensure the Landlord has protection allowed in Law to enable them to obtain possession of their property. In addition, every effort is made to provide a satisfactory Tenant, but no responsibility/liability can be accepted by the Agent for damage to property or loss of rent.
We take a commission from our tradesmen for any works sent onto them. We have still obtained preferential rates from our trades and this is passed onto our landlords.
Unless notified in writing, the client agrees that the Agent will sign the Tenancy Agreement on the client’s behalf as your Agent.
Termination of Agreement
Either party may withdraw from this Agreement by giving one month notice in writing. In the event of this agreement being terminated whilst the Tenancy continues, a fee equivalent to 50% of one months rent shall become payable to the Agent by the owner.

Properties that are let to people who claim housing benefit are normally paid in arrears and the Landlord should be aware that on occasion these payments are stopped pending a change in the tenant’s circumstances and can be paid by the Local Housing Benefit Office at irregular intervals.
This legislation dictates that the rent is paid directly to the Tenant and may result in delays of up to 12 weeks. You should ensure that sufficient funds are in place to cover your mortgage payments.
It is advisable for the Landlord to accept the rent that is detailed by the Local Rent Officer.
Energy Performance Certificates
Landlords will need to provide an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), which will be valid for 10 years. By law, Premiere Rentals cannot advertise your property until an EPC is provided. EPC’s can be produced as a result of a survey by an accredited Domestic Energy Assessor.
Legionnaires Disease
There is a legal duty for landlords to assess and control the risk of exposure to legionella bacteria.
Gas Safety
Anyone letting property must comply with the Gas Safe (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998. These apply to any type of gas installation, including Liquid Propane Gas.
All Tenants must be given a copy of the annual gas safety certificate, showing that all gas installations and appliances have been checked by a Gas Safe registered contractor. All servicing,
repairs or replacement of gas appliances or installation must be carried out by Gas Safe registered contractors.
Electrical Safety
As of 1st December 2015, under sections 13(4A) and 19B(4) of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2006, pri-vate landlords in Scotland are required by law to ensure that their properties are electrically safe. This covers: • Any installations in the property for the supply of electricity • Electrical fixtures and fittings • Any appliances provided by the landlord under the tenancy. The Landlord must ensure that an electrical safety inspection is carried out at least every five years consisting of an EICR and Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) on appliances provided by the Landlord. PAT test must be carried out annually. The person who conducts carries out the EICR must be em-ployed by a firm that is a member of an accredited registration scheme operated by a body recog-nised by the Scottish Government – this will usually mean that they are registered with NICEIC, NA-PIT or a member firm of the Electrical Contractors’ Association of Scotland (SELECT). The Department for Trade and Industry has more information on the regulations. CONTRAVENTION OF ANY OF THE STATED REGULATIONS, AS DETAILED IN THESE GUIDELINES IS A CRIMINAL OFFENCE AND COULD RESULT IN PROSECUTION.
