Buchanan Mitchell Estate Agents enjoy an enviable reputation for quality service and provide a range of letting and management services based on our experience, skills and expertise. You can be assured that we have a detailed understanding of the lettings and management sector and will ensure that you are given the best possible advice on renting your property.
Over the last few years and, following the introduction of the 1988 Housing Act which offers greater protection and possession rights to Landlords, there has been a resurgence in the lettings market. People from all walks of life are looking to become involved in the rental market, whether investors, companies, people who need to relocate with their work, or homeowners who are having difficulty in selling their own properties.
Increasingly, large numbers of people are entering the ‘Buy to Let’ sector as an opportunity for investment. As a result, landlords have come to expect extensive knowledge and expertise from the Agency they choose to act in their interest.
We take a modern and innovative approach to marketing, yet combine the latest technology with a traditional and personal approach to customer care.
We have invested in the latest innovative software and telephone systems and we are able to contact all of our potential tenants immediately a property comes to the market. We pride ourselves on providing prompt feedback to clients and discussing all comments, whether positive or negative in order that, where necessary, we can agree and adjust your specific marketing plan quickly and efficiently in order to maximise the potential of your property.

A few recommendations before letting your property
The rental market as with any other is competitive therefore, in order to obtain the best possible tenants, you must present your property in the most effective way.
- Interior walls should be neutral colours and carpets plain
- Fabrics and Furnishings (if any) must comply with The Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1998 and should be able to withstand reasonable wear and tear
- The front door should be clean and the entrance hall clear of any obstructions as first impressions are important
- The entire property should be clean, well-aired and the garden tidy
- If the weather is cold, heating should be turned on and, in warmer conditions, windows opened
- For any other advice contact your agent
Other important considerations for landlords before letting
