Why Short Term Let?
Short Term Lets are a great solution for those times when your property is vacant between tenancies. There is also potential to let certain properties for short periods during the summer months or times when it’s not in use. Understanding the short lets process means you’ll have a wider sense of the options available and allow you to let your investment more astutely and to avoid losing unnecessary earnings.
Regular Short Term Lets
There are more and more organisations who choose short term residential lets as an alternative to hotels for their employees. This means London is home to a large population of temporary tenants and companies looking for places to house them. If you’re interested in tapping into this market and looking into your short let options contact us today.
Short Term Tenancies
Short term tenants range from professionals temporarily staying in the city to holidaymakers to those trying London out before moving permanently. Being aware of these groups and keeping short term letting in mind as an option makes your property more likely to reach, and interest, more people.
One of the major benefits of short term letting is the added security it represents. If you’re moving abroad for a short period, either for work or for holiday, a short let gives you the peace of mind that comes with knowing someone is taking care of your property as their own home - not to mention the additional income you’ll generate!
All our short term lets are accompanied by our full management service. James Pendleton will take care of the day to day running of your property during your short let, providing a service that is tailored to best suit you and your tenant.
Why Short Term Rent?
Understanding how short term rentals work, and in fact remembering that they exist, can save you a lot of stress as a tenant while allowing you to ‘test drive’ life in new parts of the city.
Renting on a short term basis gives you the option to extend your tenancy, with landlord’s consent, to suit your needs. Plans can change at short notice and being able to extend your stay offers you security in the knowledge that you will have a familiar roof over your head! Similarly if you find yourself between tenancies a short term rental is a welcome option while you look for your next long term stay.
Short term lets offer a pleasant and refreshing alternative to staying at a hotel, allowing you to live like a local whilst having everything you could want from a home, with furnishings, linens and all utilities taken care of.
Trying something new
Thinking of moving to a new area but not completely sure? Considering moving to your first ever period style property? Interested in what life in the Capital might be like? Short term renting is an opportunity to live in a different way and to try a neighbourhood before you buy without being tied to a lengthy contract.
