Frequently asked questions

No, it is requested that the rent is to be paid from one nominated bank account, with the tenant reference code as reference.

Any request for a co-tenant to vacate a property will be taken to the Landlord to obtain their agreement. To end a joint tenancy, all tenants must agree to end the tenancy and sign the notice to leave. One joint tenant cannot terminate a joint tenancy on behalf of all joint tenants. If one tenant is leaving and the remaining tenant has another tenant lined up to move in, then a new tenancy will have to be created and an official move out to take place to allow for a formal checkout and new inventory for the new tenancy agreement.

You must provide written notice to the following email address – notice@tayletting.co.uk. You must give your landlord at least 28 days’ notice in writing if you want to end the tenancy. The notice period will be taken from the day the written notice to leave is received.

Once the tenancy has reached the official end date, we will conduct the checkout report, the next working day. This is the stage where the initial inventory for the property will be compared to the condition of which the property has been left in. Once the Checkout report has been undertaken, this will be formally processed and if we believe we have claim to request any deductions from the deposit for damages/dilapidations, we will advise accordingly.

Your deposit is held by Safe Deposits Scotland and you should contact them after you have vacated the property to request that the deposit be refunded. In the case of a joint tenancy each tenant must contact them to instigate their deposit refund. Their telephone number is 03333 213136. You can request the deposit refund online by going to www.safedepositsscotland.com. You will also require your Deposit Account Number (DAN). If there is a dispute over the amount to be returned, you will be required to submit evidence challenging the claims made against the deposit for Safe Deposit Scotland to make an independent adjudication on any dispute.

The first Routine Inspection of the tenancy will take place approximately 6 weeks from taking occupancy of the property. We will then carry out regular inspections throughout the course of your tenancy. You will be notified in advance via email of the date an inspection will take place. The inspections will take place between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday and will only proceed with a tenants prior authorisation.

If the duration of the tenancy has been less than a 6 month period, the Landlord is required to provide a minimum of 28 days’ notice to the tenant, with the additional allowance of 48 hours for delivery time. If the duration of the tenancy has been greater than 6 months, then the required notice period is a minimum of 84 days, again with the additional allowance of 48 hours for delivery time. For further details for any of the above, please contact the office on 0141 336 6232 or email us at enquiry@tayletting.co.uk
