Strong marketing is crucial in helping to find the right Tenant. At Lawsons we strive to :
After showing tens of thousands of Tenants around thousands of properties and hearing every objection possible, we know what Tenants want from a property, and can advise you of the most suitable properties to buy.
Most demand comes from people moving into the area for work, who are generally aged 25-40. They demand a better quality of rented accommodation, and are prepared to pay extra for that quality. We use this knowledge to advise Landlords when buying properties. See further details of our Property Acquisition service in the Investors’ section.
We keep our Landlords one step ahead – by ensuring they are offering the best quality accommodation around. The better the property is presented, the higher the rent, and the more quickly it will be let.
We will give you honest advice, such as:

We know from liaising closely with potential Tenants, what they want from a property, and can share this knowledge with Landlords – so you know you’re providing the kind of home people genuinely want to rent.
Once a Tenant is found, the hard work begins.
For Landlords who wish to protect their rental income we can purchase a Rent Recovery Plus product via HomeLet and note you as having an “interest in “ this policy. Having an interest in this policy means that you may be able to benefit should a successful claim be made.
