Our MD, Julie Cumming
Julie first moved to Perth from Inverness in 1996 to take up the post of temporary manager at the Dunfermilne Building Society in Perth’s St John’s Shopping Centre. She spent nineteen years working in banking, in various roles. It is this vast experience in financial management that gives her a unique perspective when assisting investment landlords and individuals interested in looking at Buy-To-Let for the first time.

WHAT IS AN INVENTORY AND MOVE IN REPORT?
We often get asked by landlords, why do I need an inventory, there is nothing in my property, it's unfurnished, surely it's an expense I don't need to incur? My answer is always the same - it's vital that you offer a proper, detailed inventory of a property to a tenant upon move in.
