Why use West to manage your rental property?

The simple answer – we take the stress out of letting property.

The range of services we offer and include in management services go well beyond those offered by many other agents around Fort William, Oban and the west coast of Scotland.

If you already let your property, you’ll appreciate just how painful and time consuming managing your own property can be – and the benefits our additional property management services provide.


The management of a residential property in Argyll & Lochaber is a complex business requiring a full understanding of the structure and meaning of leases, and a thorough knowledge of the ever changing statutory requirements of the various landlord and tenant legislation (there are several key Acts of Parliament). We are experienced in managing repairs and Tenant/Landlord issues and can resolve these quickly and efficiently.

Tenant Sourcing:

We always have tenants waiting for West Coast properties and we aim to minimise and even avoid “void” periods between tenancies.

Tenant Referencing:

We complete our in-office referencing procedure on all applicants to ensure only the best tenants move into your property wherever it may be in Argyll or Lochaber.

Tradesman Contacts:

We have reliable trade contacts for all trades so you can rest assured we can get repairs fixed quickly and at a good price.


Property managers have a professional approach. We provide professional customer service to all applicants and have efficient systems in place to manage your property thoroughly.

Save Time:

Property management is a time-consuming business. By employing a property manager you can free up time you would otherwise have to devote to managing the property. Imagine a burst pipe while you are on holiday. Let your property manager deal with it!

Accurate Accounting:

Property management involves many financial aspects. We provide full accounting facilities for budgeting, rent processing and monthly statements to help you keep track of your rental income and expenditure.

Knowledgeable of Arrears Procedures:

We act as an objective third party who can deal with arrears collection and other disputes involving tenants in an independent and fair manner. Through effective communication we have found many issues can be avoided and here at West Property Sales & Lettings we pride ourselves on providing effective communication to both Tenants and Landlords before, during and after all our managed tenancies.


We are an accredited Letting Agent by Landlord Accreditation Scotland. This means all our properties are of a high standard and maintained at this standard throughout all tenancies. We promote providing high-quality rental properties and deliver a great management service.
