We make the entire process quick and easy. We’ll create a full inventory of the condition of your property & contents, ensure it all complies with current legislation and suggest ways for you to maximise the rental.

Our website provides a fast, reliable way to get your property into the market quickly with all the information a prospective tenant needs. We’ll research the competition to make sure your property advert stands out above the rest.
Our local knowledge and wealth of experience in letting & managing a wide range of properties helped us develop our unique tenant referencing process to ensure that we let your property safely & securely. Our commitment to training ensures we’re always up to date with housing legislation to protect both you & your tenant. Our ongoing accreditation with Scotland’s industry regulators means your property is let & managed responsibly. The maintenance of your investment asset is our prime concern.
Once your property is ready and we’ve found a tenant, we’ll prepare the tenancy documents and set up standing orders for regular monthly payments. We’ll make sure the deposit and first month’s rent have cleared before your tenant moves in. We’ll inspect the property regularly to ensure it’s kept to a high standard and report our findings to you in our electronic monthly management report, emailed to you wherever you are in the world. We’ll advise on maintenance issues and with your authorisation we’ll action prompt repairs. At Colinton Lettings, we look after your home as if it was our own.
