Why Short Lets?
Sometimes you may find yourself in a situation where your property may be vacant for a short space of time. You may be going abroad to explore Machu Pichu or have to relocate for work temporarily in order to secure a promotion. We recommend considering shorts let on your property to ensure your mortgage is covered and that you are not out of pocket. With premium rental prices being achieved, it really offers an interesting avenue to explore. With the same stringent tenant checks in place, why don’t you let our dedicated short lets team guide you through the process and ensure your property isn’t left empty costing you money.
Your property in the safest hands
Short-term letting can be more hassle than it’s worth. That’s why we take care of everything – from the initial photographs, through to taking reservations, meet and greets, key handover, cleaning and 24-hour cover should any problems arise during your guest’s stay. This way, you can sit back, relax. When entrusting your property to people you’ve never met, you need to feel confident that it won’t be misused or damaged. We only choose holiday let guests who have proven track records and positive reviews, and we always await your approval before taking any reservations. If something does go wrong, we’re on hand to fix it.
There are several key differences in the process of securing a short-let tenancy agreement compared to a normal longer-term tenancy agreement:
- A short-let tenancy is for a term of between four weeks and up to 6 months.
- Importantly, all monies must be paid in full and in advance, including a 4 week deposit.
- Normally, utility bills are included in the rental amount, with the exception of telephone and broadband fees, payment of which will be detailed in your tenancy agreement.
