A short let is any residential tenancy of less than six months where utilities, television and internet are included in the rent. The properties are usually fully furnished and include bed linen and a complete kitchen pack with appliances, cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery and glassware.
How do you the landlords benefit from short lets - in short, a wider pool of tenants and the flexibility to fill costly void periods at short notice.
The demand for short let properties is increasing every year. There are often people looking for shorter term accommodation before they buy their next property or they may be refurbishing their home or looking to visit London for an extended business trip or holiday and want to live like a local, whatever the reason we can help. We also assist a number of professionals who are on secondment or an extended business trip via our Relocation and Corporate Services team.
