Letfirst success sees landlords urgently needed for tenants

John Taylor, CEO for Orchard & Shipman said: "In just two months we have housed 62 people in good quality rented accommodation. However, the number of people looking for a home and registering with us is growing daily and we need new landlords to help meet this demand, and meet it now.”

Demand for private rental properties in the city is extremely high. Orchard & Shipman Letfirst urgently needs one and two bedroom properties in central Edinburgh, two and three bedroom homes in the south of the city, as well as a growing demand in the west of Edinburgh.

Taylor said: "There are currently 250 people registered, looking for homes that they can move into now. This figure is growing daily and whilst we have a number of new landlords in the pipeline and new properties coming on line to help meet demand, we have an immediate need for properties."

Orchard & Shipman Letfirst works by offering tenants access to properties without the traditional need for a deposit and advance monthly rent payments, thereby helping people into homes that without the scheme they would be unable to access.

The scheme offers many benefits to landlords, especially in a turbulent market. All properties are professionally managed by Orchard & Shipman’s experienced team, with a six-month rental guarantee – unique to the private rented market – offering landlords greater flexibility and increased security.

There are no up front administration costs and no inventory or tenancy agreement fees.
