Scotland’s first build to rent scheme to open in weeks

The countdown is on for the doors to open at Scotland’s first ever build-to-rent community, as Dandara Living completes the first apartments available at its luxury Forbes Place development in Aberdeen.

Featuring 292 fully-furnished apartments and townhouses, all built to Dandara’s renowned high standard, Forbes Place offers an unrivalled quality of affordable luxury living for those looking to rent rather than buy a home.

The development, includes studio, one and two bedroom apartments, as well as exclusive three-bedroom townhouses, perfect for those looking for the highest standard of rental accommodation just minutes from the city centre.

Secured Tenancy

Dandara Living lettings manager, Mandy Anderson (pictured above) says that unlike apartments owned as investments by individuals, or rented by trusts or other organisations, every property at Forbes Place offers security of tenure:

For those renting a home from an individual or investment landlord, there is always the risk that the property could be put up for sale, leaving the tenant to find themselves somewhere else to live, and often at short notice.

At Forbes Place there is no risk that your lease will be terminated due to the property being sold on the open market – your tenancy can last as long as you need it to.

Owned by LaSalle Investment Management and managed by Dandara Living, every home at Forbes Place is available for rent only – to individuals or companies requiring accommodation for employees.

For companies looking to rent properties for employees’ use, Dandara Living offers fully-managed homes at Forbes Place – removing the uncertainty associated with renting individually owned properties or booking hotel rooms, adds Mandy Anderson.

Each property at Forbes Place features every aspect of modern living expected in a new home – including secure Amazon parcel receipt services and temperature controlled storage for groceries, superfast fibre broadband connections and underground parking.

The properties are finished to a very high standard and have a great feeling of space – for example, a Forbes Place studio includes a double bedroom area, and our two-bedroom apartments include two bathrooms – plus all apartments have a balcony.

Every resident at Forbes Place is a customer, not just a tenant – the development is designed to have a real feeling of community, and knowing that our management team is onsite, also provides residents with a real feeling of security, which is an added benefit.

Well Connected

Location is a major consideration for business travellers and a key attraction of Forbes Place is its location close to major centres of employment, including the headquarters of large-scale energy sector companies, and business parks such as D2 and ABZ in the Aberdeen International Airport zone.

Forbes Place is surrounded by superbly landscaped public gardens and is just a short walk from the nearby shopping facilities at Stoneywood and local transport links.
