We will also erect an advertising board outside the property or at the best visible location to ensure your property is receiving maximum exposure. Chalmers Properties is one of the highly reviewed letting agents in Glasgow, which means tenants will often come to us first. We have established relationships with businesses and other organisations regularly seeking properties for their directors or employees.

From our initial appraisal consultation, we shall have discussed an accurate rental valuation, which is based on key factors involving the properties; location, condition & presentation and target market.

Generally within 24 or 48 hours – assuming the property is vacant. Chalmers Properties understand that protective tenants may not always be available the traditional hours of 9-5 and therefore we cater for both evening and weekend viewings which means our services are geared to helping you let your property faster through a proactive and client focused approach.

Chalmers Properties can offer rent insurance on tenants who have passed a stringent credit and referencing process, in the region of £12 per month. Whilst we are transparent and state that renting your property can be a risk, it would be of our opinion that we wish to minimise that risk. At Chalmers Properties, it is imperative we source the correct calibre of tenant and not operate on ‘first come, first served’ basis which can result in a poor vetting procedure and potential problems later in the tenancy.

Chalmers Properties carry out regular interim inspections on your property. A full report is logged on our management software and our landlords can request copies at any time. These intern inspections work in tandem with our photographic check-in and check-out inventories Should there be any issue with your property, then we will contact you immediately.
