Letting agency recommendations

Recommended Posts

They're all bastards, but does anyone have a lesser evil to recommend? I'm looking to rent my place out. Eager to hear about good experiences from a landlord's point of view, but failing that I'll happily strike a deal with someone who's not going to make my future tenants' life a misery.

APL are cowboys. Con artists even. They'll kit out vacant flats with brand new furniture, then before you move in, they'll replace it with knackered, mouldy, broken shite and move the brand new gear on to another vacant flat to con another naive set of prospective tenants. Your deposit probably pays for their Christmas Party. You definitely won't be getting it back.

 

Also avoid AM-PM. They have a reputation of being comfortably the worst letting agent in Aberdeen. When the Scottish Government's much more stringent Letting Agent regulations come in to play next year, there's a good chance they'll get shut down. My dept at work are led to believe that a number of their staff are notorious nasty bastards. We get complaints about them from both landlords and tenants on a daily basis.

 

This delightful chap is one of the directors:

I think they have slightly higher fees than most, but Stronachs seem to have a resounding reputation from both tenants and landlords. Possibly the only agency in town we've not had a complaint about.
