Leading Scottish firm of chartered surveyors DM Hall has entered into a three-year partnering agreement with the Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers (ASSC) to be its preferred and promoted property services and advice provider.

Founded in 1978, the ASSC is the leading source of knowledge on short-term letting and holiday homes in Scotland. The ASSC is also the only trade body representing the interests of the traditional self-catering sector. It has more than 650 Members operating in excess of 7,000 self-catering properties throughout Scotland, from city centre apartments and rural cottages to lodges, chalets, and castles.

The association commits its members to maintaining the principles of quality, integrity, cleanliness, comfort, courtesy and efficiency and to offering visitors to Scotland consistently high standards within their self-catering properties. The ASSC’s vision is to place its members at the forefront of a professional, vibrant and prosperous Scottish self-catering sector.

Mark O’Neill, Head of Energy at DM Hall, said: “Withdrawal of Government guidance on energy assessment issues, specifically related to self-catering holiday accommodation, was the catalyst for initial conversations between ASSC and DM Hall.

“Further discussions, however, led ASSC Chief Executive Fiona Campbell to conclude that ASSC members could benefit significantly from accessing DM Hall’s expert insight and knowledge across a wide range of property issues.

“As a result, ASSC has directly recommended DM Hall to its members as its preferred and promoted property services and advice provider.”

Fiona Campbell, Chief Executive of ASSC, said: “Many of our members are already aware of DM Hall’s expertise and its presence throughout Scotland.

“With this move to appoint the firm as our preferred property services and advice provider we expect to enhance significantly our offering to ASSC members, both here in Scotland and further afield.”

DM Hall was established in 1897 and now employs over 230 people across 26 offices in Scotland.
