Post Graduates

Information


We have built up a substantial portfolio of Post Grad properties where the owners are looking for longer stable tenancies. In all cases the leases are written for 12 months which allows you the freedom to move on at the end of your first year but usually these leases can be extended to suit your circumstances.

The usual system is that for properties greater than 1 bedroom we rent the whole flat/house not rooms so it is important that if you are a single post grad you need to be aware of this. We are happy if your finances can stand it to prepare the lease for just 1 person and then if you find a second person we can write them into your lease.

However:

 

  • We do not run a flatmate finding service.
  • If you take the property in just your name you must be aware that you are financially responsible for the whole rent for the full period of the lease or until you find someone to share with.


Many of our Post Grad tenants come from overseas and we try very hard to work in with the difficulties this may cause you. Working remotely is a difficult matter but wherever possible we should be able to supply you with photos, description and if you can give a local contact we are happy to meet and arrange a viewing with them in order that you can get an independent view.

Leases can be sent overseas to you or they can be prepared here for your arrival and we are happy to receive direct bank payments for rent and deposit.

We are also aware that many of you may well arrive outwith office hours and where ever possible we will try to accommodate you or minimise your delay.

Please feel free to contact us by email or telephone to discuss any matter pertaining to a post grad let either for you now or for the future.
