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 onerous and time consuming managing your own property can be. Read on to learn of the benefits our property management services can 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 properties and we aim to minimize and even avoid “void” periods between tenancies. We recognize that finding the right tenant is essential for a successful let, that’s also why we undertake accompanied viewings for all our fully managed rental properties.

Tenant Referencing:

We use a professional third-party referencing company to conduct tenant referencing. Read more at https://www.vanmildert.net/

Tradesman Contacts:

We have reliable trade contacts for all trades so you can be 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!
