    gas safety certificate, energy performance certificate and proof of ownership (Falkirk only),
   To be registered and property registered with Landlord Registration Scotland and if using any

   To offer viewings to potential tenants advised of available properties within a reasonable length

   To provide all the correct tenancy documentation as per Scottish tenancy law at sign up (3
    copies required, SmartMove can assist with first tenancy),
   To adhere to best practice management regarding letting of property, including responding to
    tenants contact and repair requirements within a reasonable period of time (as per Repairing

   To carry out routine property checks to tenants,

   To submit deposit guarantee claims within 28 days (unless otherwise agreed) along with all

  What SmartMove Cannot Offer
   It is important to understand that SmartMove does not guarantee to find a tenant or that a
    tenant will make rental payments. SmartMove also cannot guarantee that deposit payments will
    be made by a tenant.
   SmartMove are not able to offer compensation to a landlord above that of a deposit guarantee
    payout. Any money paid to a landlord by SmartMove will be in relation to the agreed deposit
    guarantee conditions and claim.
   SmartMove also do not provide credit checks on potential tenants as this would highlight a
    persons rating in terms of repaying debt, not their financial situation and would serve no
    purpose in terms of the deposit guarantee.
   SmartMove are not able to access a tenants property without the prior consent of the tenant.

Please complete property sheet for each property you wish to register with SmartMove and retain a copy of this to register future
ones. All documents should be returned to the relevant address below. Once your registration has been received SmartMove will

SmartMove Landlord Registration Form
What Happens Next?

Once your registration form has been received SmartMove will verify with the local authority your
registration status. You will also be contacted to arrange a suitable time for a property inspection
to be carried out at your property to be let. Once this is complete you property is placed on our list
and offered to any suitable tenants, who will then contact you to arrange a viewing. Once you have
agreed who you would like to proceed with the client is interviewed and referenced by SmartMove.
SmartMove do not perform credit checks as part of their referencing process and anyone wishing to
see client references should advise SmartMove so that written consent can be sought from the
client.

Please note that SmartMove do not guarantee to find someone for your property and placing it on
the SmartMove property list is only one advertising option. It is solely the responsibility of the
landlord to tenant their property and SmartMove cannot accept any responsibility for a property
remaining vacant. Likewise it remains the responsibility of the landlord to provide all the necessary
tenancy documentation as required by law and to ensure this is completed correctly. It is also the
landlords responsibility to ensure that they are aware of the legal requirements regarding renting of
property and that they comply as required.

In order for the Deposit Guarantee to remain valid the landlord must meet with all legal
requirements, including the repairing standard. Claims against the deposit guarantee can only be
for any amount remaining from what a tenant has saved and cannot be for rent arrears and or
items which could be claimed through a landlords insurance. However any excess on insurance can
be claimed. Claims must be agreed with a housing officer prior to work being carried out and any
work requiring items to be purchased must have accompanying receipts. Receipts must be received
within 28 days of the agreement with the housing officer, unless otherwise agreed at inspection
time.
