Expert Assistance to Lighten Your Property Load

Become A Landlord - Let Your Home

12th December 2014

When it comes to selling a home, the norm is that we are looking to sell up so we can buy another property. However, sometimes the situation is such that you could retain your property and gain an opportunity for maximising your long-term profit, gathering additional return on your investment.

For example:

  • Couples moving in – one property could be leased
  • Property Inheritance – you could let this home rather than selling
  • Ready for a downsize – lease your home and realise the equity as a down-payment on a smaller property
  • Long-term owners – if you have paid off a sizeable chunk of your mortgage, you may be in a position to move on without the need to sell

Selling a home in the current climate can be tricky and depending on when you bought, you may feel that your property hasn’t yet garnered the return you’d hoped for. This is where a longer-term strategy for rental can help you reach full financial potential.  

Many of our clients are surprised to learn that they’d be eligible for a Buy To Let remortgage or have simply never considered the possibility of becoming a landlord.  The over-riding thought is that landlords have multiple properties and are serious, big-playing property magnates. Well, nothing could be further from the truth!

Whilst it’s true that we manage and maintain a number of property portfolios for larger investors, we also help people like you to turn one home into a monthly income and long-term investment.   We have helped many owners onto the landlord ladder and offered expert guidance and solid advice every step of the way.

We can:

  • Advise you in securing a buy-to-let mortgage
  • Ensure your property is compliant with current legislation
  • Draft your legal contract or rental
  • Market your property through our successful online and traditional channels
  • Find and reference check only suitable tenants
  • Maintain and manage your property rental for you moving forward

In order to assure our clients of our commitment to these points we never take a management fee while your property is empty, and always give honest, realistic feedback on your property and its potential in the current market.  Why not click onto our landlord section to find out more about the services we can offer.

We take our business very seriously and we’d like to invite you to tap into our network and consider your property for sale as a long-term income stream.  If you’d like to find out more, or arrange an initial no-obligation meeting then please call Julie on 01738 630004 or email

Based at our city centre office, this person will be a first point of contact for many of our tenants and landlords, delivering on our promise of exceptional client care.  The position also requires visits to our properties – a driving license is a must – including taking inventories and inspection visits.

From answering phones to replying to emails, dealing with property enquiries to arranging viewings and tradesmen visits, the role is varied and busy.

Reporting to: Julie Cumming, Director of Lettings Direct

Office Location: 8 Atholl Crescent, Perth PH1 5NG

Hours: 10-20 hours per week.  From time to time, some additional work may be required.



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. 

Lettings Direct is Now In Sales!

After a triumphant year for the team and the buisness, we are delighted to announce an exciting new move into property sales. This latest development has allowed us to offer a turnkey service for our landlord clients looking to sell, grow or let their property portfolio.

We Are On The Shortlist!

We are delighted to let you know that Lettings Direct has been shortlisted as the Residential Letting Team of the Year in the prestigious Herald Property Awards for Scotland.  This is a major achievement for our young Lettings company and one we are extremely proud to be announcing. 

Sue Does The Business - Tenant Testimonial

All too often Letting Agents think of service in terms of how happy their landlord clients are.  We are, of course, in agreement that this is hugely important but we also know that happy tenants make the letting circle complete and bring long term security to the property investments that are entrusted to us.
