A TRIO of lettings agents from Glasgow-based Cairn Estate and Letting Agency have undergone a series of training seminars on the latest lettings legislation to ensure that the firm is continuing to provide landlords and tenants alike with best practice professional advice.
Whilst senior letting agent, Jacqueline Gray, attended a Landlord Accreditation Scotland course on dealing with deposits, letting agent, Annie Dunlay, attended a tenancy agreements and repossession course run by the same organisation, whilst head of lettings, Susan Collins, attended a Rightmove seminar designed to give letting agents an insight into the operation of the leading website and how it can benefit their clients.
Collins said: “As lettings legislation and regulations are constantly changing, we are committed to investing in the continual training of our staff to ensure that, at all times, we are providing our clients with the most up-to-date, accurate and professional service.”
Commenting on her recent training course, Jacqueline Gray said: “One of the main reasons for attending this particular course was to obtain further information about the Tenancy Deposit Scheme that will be coming into effect in the near future. I found the course very beneficial because, at the moment, there is not much information available for letting agents and landlords on this topic.”
Annie Dunlay added: “The course on tenancy agreements and repossessions, proved very useful information about the proper procedures and processes when dealing with the sometimes difficult subject of repossession and eviction, including advice on the legal notice required and how and when legal documentation should be served.”
Enjoying its busiest year to date, Cairn’s lettings team has recently expanded to seven members of staff, following the recent appointment of Nicola McCarthy as a trainee letting agent.
Cairn is much more than ‘just an estate agent’. In fact it is the only agent that sells investment properties, lets flats, penthouses, homes or student flats, adds value by undertaking repair works, has a database of clients seeking access to buy to lets and property portfolios and sources properties for clients, whether homes or student flats.
