Guaranteed Rent FAQs

We effectively become your tenant therefore ensuring that you get a fixed rental income each month for a minimum period of 12 months. We then sub-let your Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire property to a sub-tenant via a Private Rented Tenancy. You will receive your rent each month whether there is a tenant in place or not or if the tenant stops paying, unless the property is rendered uninhabitable.

It is in our best interest that we find the best tenant possible. We will deal with any repair work required at the end of the tenancy (subject to a maximum value of six weeks rent) and our in-house legal team will deal with any breaches of the PRT at no extra cost to you.

At Northwood Aberdeen, we can offer a variety of contracts with a minimum of 12 months. Contracts can be renewed on a rolling basis or for a further fixed period.

We cover Aberdeen city and Aberdeenshire including Inverurie, Stonehaven, and Banchory and surrounding areas – basically the full range of the North East of Scotland!

When we sub-let your property in Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire, we take a normal deposit from the tenant which is then protected with one of the approved deposit protection schemes. When the tenant leaves, the deposit can then be used to cover any costs of damages. We guarantee to pay up to 1.5 times the monthly rent, subject to wear and tear, in respect for the condition of the property.
