Short Lets

What is a short let?

A short let is when a property is let out to an person or a company for a short period - usually a few weeks to a few months. It's often used by multinational businesses who need to move senior people into the area and consider a comfortable home a better, more relaxed option than a long hotel stay.

The demand for short term accommodation in West London is consistently high.

What are the benefits?

As a landlord, short lets offer a great rental income, with more flexibility than you get with a long-term tenancy – which has a six month minimum period. Your property can produce an income during a period when it may be vacant anyway – if you're are going away or even when the property is on the market for sale. It also keeps your property secure during these times. 

We have links to many large organisations, relocation agents and insurance companies, all prepared to pay a premium rent for your property - sometimes up to 25-50% higher than the market value.

What do you need to provide?

Because it's a short term let, it's usually necessary to offer the property furnished, with a full range of appliances and household items. Your tenant will often arrive with little more than a suitcase so they will need crockery, towels, linen and electrical goods. We have links with furniture providers if you need any additional items, and can help ensure your home is well equipped for your short-term tenant.

Who pays the bills?

Usually the bills remain the responsibility of the landlord, and the premium rental price covers all utilities and council tax.
