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.

"I have been a private landlord for 15 years and always let and managed the property myself. 5 years ago we moved away from London so that letting the property became quite difficult with expensive trips to and from London for viewings etc. I had used Gumtree with decreasing success. I received an email from Misty Dowson regarding a lettings promotion Beresford Residential were running. The flat went on the market at the beginning of December last year. Beresford Residential were instructed at the end of February as the flat had been vacant for 3 months and they had found tenants by the second week of March. BeresfordResidential achieved a rental increase of 17.5% and I was absolutely thrilled and extremely impressed by Misty's professional, efficient and expedient service. Once the let had been agreed, Karl Reynolds took over where Misty had left off. The join was seamless and Karl, like Misty, showed the same excellent level of service. In fact, he went beyond his remit dealing with a management issue that was not covered under the agreement that I had with them taking the standard of service to a whole new level. I would not hesitate to recommend Beresford Residential 100% to any landlords looking to take the hassle out of letting and despite 15 years of promising never to pay an agent to let my property, feel pretty confident that when the time comes to relet the flat I will be instructing them again. 5/5 Stars"
