SCOTLAND’S LARGEST RENTAL BODY CREATED

SCOTLAND’S LARGEST RENTAL BODY CREATED

Let scotland 200 pxMessage Matters’ clients LetScotland, the Association of Professional Letting Agents in Scotland, and Lettingweb, the largest marketplace for lettings in Scotland, have announced that they have merged.

With over 420 members, the merger creates by far the largest representative body for letting agents in Scotland. It is the only Scottish organisation representing only letting agents which will act as the voice of agents in the media and in parliament and government. Previously, LetScotland spoke on behalf of just over 40 members.

The representative body will retain the name LetScotland, but will be branded as part of the Lettingweb group to reflect its role as one of Lettingweb’s divisions.

Malcolm Warrack, the Chairman of LetScotland who will continue in his leadership role for LetScotland as part of Lettingweb, said:

“LetScotland was formed because the letting agent sector had been ill-served by its representatives. There was no body dedicated to Scottish letting agents, so we created one from the bottom-up.

“Our grass-roots movement can now take the next step as we go from being a relatively small voice to by far the largest representative body for letting agents in Scotland.

“The industry needs a single unified voice to speak for it in the media and in parliament. This deal creates that voice.”
