Locate Now is a well-established property management company based in the Highlands. Established in 2005, the firm recently moved from Dochfour Business Centre to the estate’s former factor’s office at Dochgarroch re-establishing the history of the building.
Owner Lynda Forbes said: “Our new location will enable us to continue to develop our existing business while providing a workshop for our growing works team which ensures that all of the properties we look after are maintained to a high standard, and takes on independent contracts with access to all trades.”
Locate Now offers full management and tenant find packages and has the flexibility to tailor to individual needs and include additional services as required. Lynda explained: “We were recently approached by a new landlord who had found tenants and simply wanted a little help with the new agreement. We were able to draw up the necessary documents in our standard form and helped with the provision of an inventory and condition report to work in conjunction with new regulations. They are now confident in self-managing the tenancy and know that we can support them again if necessary.”
A new standalone package is being launched which will help independent landlords to understand the new regulations which have come into effect in recent months. Lynda said: “Our knowledge base is continually growing through training provided by the Scottish Landlords Association. The most recent changes around property letting such as tenancy deposit schemes and energy performance certificates can leave landlords and tenants confused and unsure of what to do to comply. Locate Now simplifies the whole process for both parties. The firm also offers a safety net to Landlords who choose to self-manage, and can temporarily assume responsibility for their properly if they are out of the area on holiday or business.”
Lynda chooses to personally carry out rental assessments and tenant viewings. Given her experience and intuition this is an approach which proves particularly effective in matching a tenant with a property that they will feel happy in and look after: “I love what I do. Meeting people and tenant matching all add to the satisfaction of the job. I know that the personal touch and flexibility we offer is what really helps us to stand out in the market. Our clients’ needs are of huge importance to us. By building a strong relationship with landlords and tenants we can guarantee that any arising issues are dealt with quickly and effectively by our own in-house team.”
The firm includes website marketing in its overall fees and makes best use of popular sites such as Gumtree, which guarantee to tap into the local population quickly. Lynda added: “We see ourselves very much as flexible and approachable and treat each property as we would our own.”
The attention to detail and dedication to going the extra mile makes Locate Now a first class choice for landlords and prospective tenants.
Lynda concluded: “The additional space in our new premises will be used to provide an independent meeting room to accommodate up to 20 delegates and fill an existing need at the Business Centre, which we also manage for Dochfour Estate. This will be available for daily hire to the wider business community. With ample parking, the stunning location by the Caledonian Canal (only three miles from Inverness) is a welcoming venue.”
