If you are new to letting a property, we understand it can seem daunting. Rest assured, we’ve been helping landlords – experienced and new – let their properties throughout the area since 1993 and you’ll find Lawlors will make the process smooth for you and your tenants.
The first step is to call us to view your property. One of our expert valuers will give you an estimate of its likely rental value, backed up by evidence of similar properties that have been let nearby.
We will also advise on whether any work to the property would add to its ‘rentability’ and help you assess whether this investment would be worthwhile. We have an in-house property management team too and have good relationships with local, trusted contractors who would be more than happy to provide an estimate for any work that might be required.
You are advised not to instruct a contractor directly except in the event of a genuine emergency, as the landlord may not agree with other reasons for a call out and therefore the liability to pay the contractor may remain with you. For the avoidance of doubt we would define an emergency as serious maintenance matters that endanger health or safety.
