    What We Do

    With 15 years experience in the rental market we offer landlords peace of mind that their property is well looked after with our management and tenant find service.   

    If you are interested in our property management/ tenant find service we will come out to visit you and your property and provide you with a rental valuation; information on being a landlord, as well as a report on how comparable properties are doing in the area.  This is to give you an indication as to how long it should take to rent your property.  We will also take photographs of the property at this initial visit so that we can start advertising the property as soon as you wish to.

    Long-Term Let Property

     

    We offer two services for long-term let properties; Full management and Tenant find/Let only service.

     

     

    Full Management Service

     

    Once you have given us the go-ahead for the marketing of the property we use the following methods to advertise:

     

    Laidlaw Lettings will carry out viewings and will then reference check prospective tenants.

     

    Once the references have been carried out and have been satisfactory we will contact you to advise you of the prospective tenant(s) preferred start date and length of lease proposed.

     

    Laidlaw Lettings will then draft the required documentation and carry out the inventory prior to the lease start date.  This includes a detailed written inventory as well as photographs.  At the time of the lease signing the deposit and first month's rent will be collected. Arrangements will be made for future rent payments and the deposit will be transfered to a tenancy deposit scheme.

     

    Rent payments will be made to the landlord within 5 working days of the rent being collected by Laidlaw Lettings.

     

    The check in will then be carried out with the tenant(s) in attendance at the property.

     

    During the lease, if the landlord has opted for full management, Laidlaw Lettings will be the point of contact for the tenant(s) regarding issues with maintenance.  We will then get in touch with the landlord if there is an issue that cannot be rectified easily or if there is a substantial cost involved (over £150).

     

    Inspections are carried out after the initial first three months of the lease and thereafter on a quarterly basis.

     

    At the end of the lease Laidlaw Lettings will carry out the check out and will manage the deposit return.

     

    Tenant Find/Let-Only Service 

     

    If the landlord has opted for the tenant-find/let-only service, Laidlaw Lettings hand the property back to the landlord once the check in has been completed, together with the deposit and first month's rent.

    Holiday Let Property

     

    Once you have given us the go-ahead to start marketing the property we use the following methods to advertise:

     

     

    Viewings are usually not required for short-term or holiday let stays, in which case once the property has been advertised we make sure that the property is ready for the first booking.  This includes:

    • Making sure the property is clean

    • Making sure the correct inventory items are there (linen/towels etc), we can source these items for you

    • Ensuring appliances have been serviced where applicable

     

    Laidlaw Lettings will then manage all the bookings going forward and will manage the cleaning required between bookings, as well as any maintenance issues that crop up.

    Tenant Find/Let-Only Service 

     

    If the landlord has opted for the tenant-find/let-only service, Laidlaw Lettings hand the property back to the landlord once the check in has been completed, together with the deposit and first month's rent.
