When our landlords are thinking of selling we often refer them to Portolio, a specialist estate agent for landlords, selling tenanted properties from one landlord to another landlord. This ensures tenants remain secure in their homes, there are no void periods and it’s altogether a very hands-off solution. It was set up by two Scottish ex-letting agents in 2017, Portolio is the product of the decades of knowledge amassed by Managing Director Chris Wood and Director of Sales Ross MacDonald.



Landlord Accreditation Scotland (LAS) is a voluntary scheme by which landlords and letting agents can assure tenants that the tenancy arrangements they have adhere to the highest standards outlined in the Scottish Core Standards for Accredited Landlords.

Vuabl specialises in creating virtual property tours primarily for those involved in the Real Estate industry. What we have strived to do is simplify the process of creating these tours and in turn make them more cost effective and scalable across a clients portfolio. We provide the client with a camera and tripod along with a welcome pack that runs through how to capture the perfect shot. We have made this extremely simple and a two bedroom apartment will not take longer than 15 minutes to capture. Once the client has taken the images they simply upload them to our website and we build out the bespoke tour within 24 hours. This technology helps companies within the Real Estate industry increase conversion rates, increase revenue, save time, qualify buyers/tenants and importantly allows for safe property viewing.
