Whether you are coming to the UK for a business trip, an extended holiday, or require accommodation between house moves, a short-term let offers a flexible solution for those looking for the convenience of a short stay with the comfort of a home.
The short let properties we offer are available from four weeks up to five months and come fully furnished to provide that “home away from home” set up. The cost of renting a short stay property is often equivalent to that of a hotel, but short let tenants benefit from a real sense of home and their very own slice of London, Surrey and the Country.
At John D Wood & Co. we understand that there are many reasons why a short-term let might be the most suitable option for you. That is why we are poised to help you find the right property, irrespective of whether you are looking for a home during renovation works, medical treatment, a sports competition, or location filming.
Since opening our specialist short lets department in 2021, we’ve been hugely successful in finding short-term accommodation for our clients.
Our short lets team acts as your location agent, guiding you through the entire process of finding and securing a short let. We start by sitting down with you to discuss the wants and needs of your search, whether for yourself, or your client. We then utilise the entire John D Wood & Co. network, coordinating with all our internal departments to find your perfect short-stay property. We provide assisted viewings, deal with all feedback, queries and negotiations, and complete all legal due diligence required to secure your new home away from home.
So whether you are looking for a short-term let for yourself, an employer sourcing accommodation for your staff or students, or a location agent working on behalf of a client, we can help find you the right property, fast.
Sometimes letting your property out for more than six months doesn’t fit in with your needs. Our Short Lets service allows you to make your property available for fixed dates, meaning that you can maximise your asset without committing to a long-term tenancy. This is a great option for established landlords looking for flexibility, as well as owners who want to utilise their property as a holiday let whilst away themselves.
At John D Wood & Co., we have our own in-house Property Management team to ensure complete peace of mind and protect the relationship between landlord and tenant. We assist with all safety and compliance processes, as well as rigorously pre-qualifying all our tenants, so you’ll feel safe in the knowledge that your most valuable asset is safe.
We work alongside relocation companies, FTSE 500 and blue chip companies and embassies to help house their employees, as well as holidaymakers keen to find a home away from home, so will be sure to find you your perfect tenant in a timely manner.
