From start to finish Laura and her team gave excellent advice and support. They found me great tenants and made sure it was maintained and a good place to live and also that it was looked after by the tenant. I absolutely recommend Chapmans to help you, if you want to be a good landlord.

Flipping awesome! Recommended to us by an expert in Edinburgh property, from the first contact we knew we were in good hands. Great communication, friendly, professional, and very, very good at their job! Within two weeks our property was inspected, we discussed how to proceed, some deep cleaning and redecoration were carried out, it was advertised, prospective tenants were shown around, subjected to rigorous checks, and moved in! Chapmans think of everything, and do it without a fuss (or spending a fortune). Five-star service at a very reasonable rate!

Would not hesitate to use Chapmans again and would highly recommend them to others.

Laura and her wonderful team have been managing my property for over a decade now and have gone from strength to strength. Would honestly be lost without them. They are so on top of all the regulations and always manage to find me the most reliable tenants. Would highly recommend to anyone who is considering leasing their property.

So glad Chapmans manages our property. 5 stars to Hunter for professionally handling our tenant changeover during a pandemic and for managing our new tenants! We are grateful for her friendly, professional advice during these mad times. Well done! Highly recommend them to Landlords looking for a smaller friendly company that provides excellent service.

Chapmans ably managed my property in Edinburgh for over 5 years, this included a period where I was overseas for several years and away from Edinburgh for the rest of the time. Throughout this period they swiftly dealt with any issues that arose, with minimal input required from myself. They excelled at always ensuring the property was let to reliable tenants and there was never a void period throughout the time I let out the property. If you’re looking for a property management service in Edinburgh I highly recommend Chapmans.
