Short term lets are often available for between one and six months and there may also be the option to extend on a month-to-month basis after the initial agreed term.
The majority of short lets are offered fully-furnished which would include all of the main furniture and could also include small household items such as towels, bed linen, crockery and electrical goods.
Be careful to check each individual listing, however you are likely to find that most of our short lets also include all utility bills and council tax (excluding telephone services).
Short lets are popular with large organisations that need to house employees as a more cost-effective alternative to hotels; insurance companies often rely on short lets when they need to house their clients during repair works; and private individuals see this as a convenient option to bridge the gaps between selling and buying a new property.
For landlords, this flexible approach to letting can be a great option if you are unsure of your long-term plans or if you are working away for a short period of time.
"As a first time renter, you can imagine how nervous I was going to see this property. Tufael was amazing, he warmly welcomed me into the property making me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed. He then shared with me his vast knowledge of both property and the local area, without being overly pushy he they pointed out all the different aspects of the flat making me feel as if I was already living there and it was perfect. Not only was he extremely knowledgable about the local area and the property but was very up front with me about all costs making me feel very comfortable. He put up with me asking silly questions, constantly call him and organising more viewings (of the same property). He also made me feel he genuinely cared about my best interests. Due to his amazing work, I put in an offer 12 hours after first seeing property bearing in mind this was the first ever property I have viewed and I'm a fussy guy. So Tufael, I thank you.Â Also Misty was very nice on the phone. 5/5 Stars"
