Landlord service options

Lawlors offer three levels of service to accommodate the differing needs of our clients, from a Full Managed Service for those that prefer the convenience and peace of mind of an ‘all inclusive’ style service, to a Tenant Find, for the experienced ‘do it yourself’ landlord.

The options we can offer and our fees are listed below (service level fees are a percentage of the rental income including VAT)
