  • Biography:

    SCN Lettings is is a family run property investment and rental business operated by myself and Sue. We have been landlords for the past 14 years.

    I am an Accredited Member of the National Landlords Association, and an Associate Member of the Institute for Residential Property Management, specialising in Block Management and Right To Manage issues. I retired from the police service in 2011 after 30 years service at senior management level.

    SCN run an ethical business and treat all persons who rent from them with the utmost courtesy and fairness. We have tenants renting from us who have been with SCN since 2002, and tenants who return to SCN months or years later.

    The SCN mission statement is – “Rental Without Risk” – for Landlords and Tenants. When a tenant signs up for an SCN property they and we conform with all landlord regulations, and deposit protection legislation via the Deposit Protection Service. All our inventories are carried out on web based software which includes signed photographs and a full written inventory of the property, reducing risk to both the landlord and tenant. With Property Redress Scheme and Good Landlords Campaign membership landlords and tenants can be assured of our integrity.

    Tenant leaving mid month?

    I concur with Neil's comments above. If it was that you needed to re-let then I would have insisted on the full notice period. As it is the sooner the tenant is out the easier is is to sell. But...she appears in a hurry. So unlikely to clean the property properly or make good any dilapidations. Writ

Ask your solicitor for the following documentation, which in leasehold cases should be provided by t

    What to do when your sole trader letting agent dies?

    2016-12-27 10:37:34

    Hi Jacquie, I am very sad to hear of your agents death. If this is a business account as a sole trader then he should have and indeed may have his wife as a signatory. In which case the bank should not have frozen the account. The danger is of course is that it was a personal account and the bank
