The mears group have taken over the contract to house asylum seekers in Scotland. We relet properties with them on the promise from Chris that everything would improve , however it was just rubbish. The problem is that they have refused to pay us the last 3 months rent until we sign their lease terms! Here are they things we found out.

Firstly in order to help you understand them, you need to know that the Mears group are a large maintenance company and as such with by having this new asylum contract And forcing landlords to only use their lease agreements, they have been giving a blank cheque book to determine how much work gets done in each property and to instruct their own contractors to do it at the landlords cost.

1. They will only pay LHA rates and tried paying it in arrears. Best letting to People on DSS
2. Despite claiming that they will carry out any small adhoc repairs themselves at no cost, they have now written into their lease that they dan do any work and deduct it from the rent. This will no doubt be a money generating machine for them to take as much of the rent as they can.
3. Even if you are allowed to get your own contractors in, they Have strict criteria and will only allow them in if they have had a disclosure check. Another hurdle you have to overcome.
4. They reserve the right to do any safety checks they want at your cost, without giving you the option to send your own contractors in
5. They make you sign a 3/5 year lease with no break clause on landlords side, but tenants can walk away
7. They have requirements that are well above the standard that a private tenants require. They will gladly move a tenant in, however once the lease is signed, they will come back to you with all these extra things that need done at your expense

In summery, you may be tempted by this long term lease, however it will cost you dearly in the long term with all their additional requirements and charges, many of which are not required in normal private lets
