I have had good experience as a landlord with Northwood in Aberdeen, they know what is legally required and this gives me peace of mind - thanks to Nicola for her help. I also like that they offer real estate services, which has a benefit knowing both markets.

Poor service received from beginning to end of tenancy - very clear that landlords are valued higher than tenants at Northwood. Moved into a dirty flat, with multiple issues that took literally months to resolve, despite constant chasing- issues including furniture that didn't conform to fire regulations being stored in my spare room for weeks, before being located to my shed without my consent, broken shower, broken buzzer, broken blinds, heating breaking down twice, greasy and dirty furnishings throughout.
The flat was handed back at end of, 6 month tenancy, about ten times cleaner than when I moved in, with new toilet seat (did I mention the original was broken, and being held on with sellotape?), New coat hooks (old ones crumbling out of wall), new net curtains with pole and a kitchen free from the inch of grease from when I moved in.
Despite this I was charged £54 for a cleaning, with a cheeky £30 admin fee added on for my troubles. I requested a copy of the invoice for the cleaning 17 days ago, and have not yet received it, despite emails, visiting northwood, and phoning twice to speak to management, who did not return my call.
Very disappointed at the lack of support given to tenants by this company, and I will not be recommending to anyone.
Watch out for unlawful charges and insincerity.
