Based in the Scottish Borders, I have spent over eighteen years working in the private rented sector in Scotland, primarily across Edinburgh, The Borders and East Lothian. I have a wealth of knowledge and experience from letting flats (both to professionals and HMO tenants) and townhouses, as well as large rural houses and country cottages, either individually owned or Estate owned.
As a registered letting agent, I can offer bespoke services to include a tenant find only, in both town or country, as well as file audits, conduct annual property inspections and provide general tenancy advice. I will also carry out rent reviews, assist with problems, and take on project work. The list is not exhaustive.
ln addition, I have extensive experience of working with agents on specific projects, and I am happy to assist where necessary. Examples being covering for maternity leave or during busy seasonal periods.
If you are looking to move house and can't bear the thought of decluttering, I can assist you with this and your house move.
Geographically, I cover The Borders and the Lothians and would be happy to travel out with this area if required or for project work.

I recently applied to rent a cottage, having had a bad experience with a big agent, it was refreshing to work with Camilla during my application. She was clear in her communication and kept me up to date every step of the way. From my viewing to start date of my tenancy a staggering 5 days turn around! Thank you Camilla.
With a small portfolio of Edinburgh flats of various sizes, Camilla has been contributory in sourcing and securing tenants for me. She is very knowledgeable, easy to work with and keeps you up to date during the letting process. My tenants are very happy and also found the “move -in” process slick.
Having sourced our own tenant, Camilla took us through the requirements for both property and landlord compliance. She carried out a thorough vetting of the tenant and, with our approval, served the tenancy agreement together with supporting documents on the tenant. Camilla was extremely efficient throughout and as a result we will be retaining her in a management role.
My cottages needed a tenancy inspection and my files, since the change of legislation, needed a review. Camilla spent time checking each file to ensure that my paperwork was in order. On her findings she then put together a programme of works following the property inspections to ensure that I was all up to date. It is great to know that my Landlord compliance and tenancies are running smoothly with Camilla on hand if I have a query.
Using a bespoke service, which I created with Camilla. We meet annually to plan the year ahead to ensure that my cottages have annual inspections, to keep on top of maintenance and comply with current legislation. We also look at each tenancy on a case by case to discuss any arising matters and rent reviews. Camilla has always been thorough with her recommendations, knowledgeable and efficient. On the occasion a cottage falls empty the void period is minimal, to move a tenant in within 7 days from a viewing is a swift let!
Running a busy and versatile Estate, finding the time and man power to carry out mid tenancy inspections on our cottages in Selkirkshire, we always needed that “extra” pair of hands. By employing Camilla to carry these out on our behalf it is now integral to the running of the Estate to ensure that the properties meet the current regulation, properties maintained/looked after and our tenants are happy. Her reports are thorough and allowed us to put in a programme of works for maintenance and address any tenancy matters. In addition, we have used her services to source and successfully secure several new tenants.
