I would absolutely recommend Lets Get Local, Lorna and her team to anyone thinking of offering a property for holiday let.Chris, owner of Elegant Townhouse, Albany Street
From advising me on set up, regulations and presentation through to marketing, handling all aspects of guest care, looking after my property and creating net income for me I've been hugely impressed and totally satisfied with the service and results.
I always felt my property, reputation and earnings were in very safe hands with Lorna (always calm, knowledgeable and reassuring) and I trusted her to take decisions on my behalf. Feedback from guests about the service and care they received was also always excellent. A brilliant solution to maximising income and minimising hassle.
Letting your Edinburgh properties while living abroad requires placing your financial and emotional trust in the hands of someone else. We are delighted that our "someone else" is Lorna Moffat and her team at Lets Get Local.Forbes, owner of Magnificent Townhouse and Luxury Apartment properties, Stafford Street
Lorna expertly manages all aspects of the letting process. She has generated solid levels of income, above our expectations, while providing immaculately presented properties, the warm welcome and the local knowledge so appreciated by our guests.
However, her most important role, from a home owner's perspective, is her attention to the well-being of our properties. This is of the highest concern for Lorna and no job seems too big or too small. The peace of mind this produces is immeasurable but absolutely vital.
We have offered our recommendation of Lorna's services to a number of friends and this is the highest accolade we can give.
Lorna and her team at Lets Get Local have been managing all aspects of my short-term rental property for over 5 years after I moved to Asia. Everything from maximising my occupancy rates to turning round the property during peak rental periods to dealing with middle of the night plumbing issues is handled with complete professionalism and nothing is ever too much trouble for her team. Lorna is warm, dedicated and completely trustworthy. Given the time difference between Singapore and Scotland, she often has to make decisions regarding my property whilst I am sleeping, and I have never once doubted that her decision was in my best interests. The peace of mind I get from knowing my property is in safe hands is invaluable and I would recommend any landlords looking for a management company to trust in Lorna, the way I do.Jonny, owner of Stylish West Newington Place Apartment, Southside
The booking and invoice process is seamless, payment is always received on time and any annual servicing obligations are managed on my behalf. Lastly, the customer reviews for my property are testimony enough to the value Lorna and her team brings to my business. It is her quality of service and attention to detail, probably much more than my beautiful leather armchair, that secures repeat business and makes customers feel they want to leave positive reviews.
I'm looking forward to continuing our relationship in 2019, and beyond.
The service that Lorna has provided both to us as landlords and to our clients as tenants over the last few years has been truly outstanding. She and her team have a great eye for detail, are very responsive and reliable and set out to ensure all clients who visit Edinburgh have a great time.Roger, owner of Stunning Drumsheugh Gardens Apartment, West End
As landlords we have total confidence that our apartment will always be beautifully presented, that any issues that arise are dealt with swiftly and efficiently and we have total confidence in recommending Lorna and Lets Get Local to landlords and visitors alike.
