Pat Mavor - Mavor & Co.
“At Mavor & Co. we had a steady increase in enquiries over the first quarter of 2020 prior to lockdown, with number of viewings and rental levels continuing to rise within West Lothian. Our experience is that there has been a levelling off of landlords wishing to leave the private rented sector due to the changes in the tax regimes and indeed, we are encouraged to find that there are some new landlords emerging into the market. Since lockdown, we have seen an increase in tenants giving notice for different reasons. After social distancing measures are relaxed and face to face viewings are permitted, we believe there will be a surge in new lettings.”
