Cullen Property offers FREE property management masterclass to prospective and existing landlords

Posted: 14th May 2021

Edinburgh residential property investment and lettings specialist Cullen Property is inviting prospective and existing landlords to attend a FREE webinar on successful property letting in Edinburgh post lockdown.

Cullen Property Managing Director Steve Coyle will host the 30 minute lunchtime masterclass on Wednesday, 26 May 2021. It will update existing landlords on best practice as well as introducing prospective landlords to the various topics which need to be considered when letting out their property for the first time.

Cullen Property Managing Director Steve Coyle said: “No doubt, the pandemic has changed how we let and manage properties in Edinburgh.

“However, demand for high quality residential properties in the Scottish capital remains high. This is especially the case for larger properties preferred by students.

“What has changed is how viewings are conducted and contracts are completed. Whilst we hope that some practices will go ‘back to normal’ in due course, others are here to stay because they benefit all involved.”

The webinar on 26 May 2021 will cover an array of relevant topics, including:

  • What a new landlord needs to do before letting out their property
  • How to ensure the property is set up to attract the best tenants and rents
  • Understanding the Private Residential Tenancy and the key points of how it works
  • What the process involves from initial marketing through to happy tenants living in the property
  • Key challenges of letting during/post Covid-19 lockdown and how to overcome them
  • The future of residential lettings in Edinburgh 

Cullen Property is also offering attendees an exclusive downloadable Letting Tips Guide and a number of free half-hour, one-to-one phone or zoom consultations for attendees with any questions about letting their property in the current climate.

Since the start of the pandemic Cullen Property has successfully managed to adapt business practices, allowing them to keep staff, tenants and landlords safe with minimal disruption to operations.

This has allowed the company not only to retain existing staff but expand the team as they worked with staff and clients to offer virtual viewings, among others.

Cullen Property specialises in HMO property investment and lettings and is one of Edinburgh’s leading student letting agents, currently managing circa 400 properties in Edinburgh including over 200 HMO properties. In addition to delivering standard property management services, the Cullen Property team can also source, acquire and transform properties into fully HMO licensed accommodation in prime city centre locations.
