Historic Purchase for Lettings Direct

By 20th February 2015

Lettings Direct is delighted to announce the purchase of 8 Atholl Crescent, Perth which has been in the late Lord Kinnoull’s Estate for almost 100 years.  

Wes ecured the purchase in late 2014 and the £1/2million investment in this Grade-A listed building will see us upgrade the office suites and create some fully-serviced options for our neighbours - who are happily now our tenants! 

The plans also include working with Historic Scotland to secure funding for restoring a Victorian conservatory at the back of the building, which is believed to the be the last one of its kind in Perth.

The purchase marks the first Business Centre in our portfolio and on completion will house sixteen offices over 300 sq. meters to include twelve parking spaces.  

This is a sizable investment for us and we are delighted to be in a position to restore and upgrade this beautiful building. We have been tenants of The Kinnoull Trust for 2 years and we know that with the £200,000 refurb project we can modernise the interiors and return the external façade to its former glory.

The sixteen fully serviced office suites will also allow us to employ additional members of staff.

The historical sale was executed by Graeme Duncan at Bidwells.

We look forward to keeping you up to date with news as we progress!

Julie, Garry and The Team.

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.
