Dove Davies Dove Davies have been specialising in residential letting and management since 1974. We have grown and developed into one of Edinburgh's leading firms. Our training as Chartered Surveyors with our wide-ranging experience as well as use of technology provide a consistently high level of service to clients. We specialise in the letting and management of property in and around Edinburgh.

We can provide a full spectrum of Buy-to-Let services, from the initial sourcing of a suitable property, project management of any upgrading including planning permission/building warrant work, through to soft furnishings, where appropriate. In order to let and manage a property there are a number of safety and compliance checks to be carried out.

We can arrange all of these on your behalf. From there we will market the property and fully vet any tenants prior to arranging for the tenancy agreement to be signed. There are many other items to be dealt with prior to the tenant taking entry - a fully documented inventory with photos, lodging the deposit to a Government-approved third party, transfer of utility providers, notification of council tax authority, etc.

At the present time the letting market within Edinburgh is very busy and we have a shortage of available properties to meet the high levels of demand. This is particularly the case with central one and two bedroom Edinburgh flats. No, but there is a great deal of legislation covering property to let these days, so if you don't have any experience in the field you may find it extremely challenging. A good agent will remove you from the daily stress sometimes associated with managing the property.

We can give advice on the different rental levels and yields available from different types of property or different locations. We can carry out rental valuation visits if you are perhaps abroad or absent from Edinburgh and require someone to view on your behalf. My flatmate and I are first time renters in our 3rd year of university, we have been renting a lovely flat from Dove Davies for around 2 years.

This can be from simple decoration or carpeting right up to larger projects that may require planning permission, building control/completion certificates and structural work. These projects can add considerably to the both the capital and rental value of the property. Please see below further details and examples with photos showing the transformation of some properties we have recently dealt with. This property was located in Bruntsfield Place, Edinburgh and had been let out for a number of years.

This service is generally only suitable for the experienced landlord who is knowledgeable in all the relevant landlord and tenant legislation and conversant with industry practices. There are many pitfalls to taking shortcuts in letting a property and we would suggest that only experienced landlords go down this route. Upload the property and photos to our website as well as the main property portals - Rightmove, Zoopla, Lettingweb, OnTheMarket, etc.

There is no minimum lease length for private tenants in Scotland, but we are generally seeking tenants who will stay a minimum of 6 months. We are a group of unrelated tenants, are there any restrictions on the properties we can apply for? Yes, any property occupied by more than two unrelated people must have an HMO Licence. This stands for House in Multiple Occupation. There are higher safety standards for these properties so they will be licensed for a maximum of 3, 4, 5 tenants, etc.
