At Clan Gordon, we know that happy tenants make the best tenants, so we treat our tenants in exactly the same way as our landlord clients. Annual surveys are a great way for us to find out if our tenants are happy, and gain their insight on areas for improvement. This year has been especially busy for us at Clan Gordon – our property portfolio has increased by 36% and our team has grown by three new members of staff – making tenant feedback from the 2019 survey even more important.
A rental property is a tenant’s home, so it is important our tenants can trust us with the management of their property.

We were delighted that 97% of tenants confirmed that they trust Clan Gordon as their managing agent.
Providing exceptional customer service is at the heart of everything we do; we want our tenants to feel like valued clients. 97% of tenants are satisfied with the level of customer service they receive from Clan Gordon; 84% rated our customer service as ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’.
