Citylets article in Scotland on SundayCitylets’ latest data report on the Trends in Scottish Residential Lettings, has featured exclusively in leading quality Sunday newspaper, the Scotland on Sunday.

The Citylets Report, which analyses data from the first quarter of 2009, is the country’s leading source of independent rental information and a crucial gauge for landlords in assessing what they can expect from their property portfolio.

Now, thanks to expert media relations by Holyrood PR the report has enjoyed successful press coverage in the business pages of the Scotland on Sunday.

Journalist Rosemary Gallagher has used the report to highlight a power shift from landlords to tenants as an oversupply of proeprties on the market in Scotland forces rental prices down.

The article, headlined Residential rents fall as landlords hit, also features extensive quotes from Citylets’ managing director, Thomas Ashdown, in which he talks about the changing market conditions.
