Increase profits as a short stay landlord

Letting with KG Short stay

Why should I choose short stay rentals?

Tax benefits

As a short stay owner you can claim back significant tax relief via capital allowances. This tax benefit does not apply to normal lettings and means you can essentially operate tax-free for a number of years. Our advisors will talk you through it.

Free of tenant worry

We take full control of your property, liaise with all guests  and manage paperwork and payments. We inspect the property at least once a month  to make sure  it is kept in tip top condition. Never worry about tenants not paying or mistreating the property. No voids too!

More income

On average over a 12 month period, our  mid-range short stay properties achieve 50% more profit compared to standard buy-to-let properties. That is a significant uplift in your returns as a property owner.

Protecting investment

By treating your property as if it was our own,  we help to retain its value and protect your long-term investment.  We’ll make sure it stays in optimum condition with regular inspections and maintenance giving you peace of mind.

Fully flexible, no contracts

We’re flexible and agile and don’t tie our landlords to hefty contracts. Instead, we have a signed agreement with a two month’s notice period, so you are free to leave at any point should you need to. We only ask for two month’s notice so we can manage existing bookings in the property.

Why choose KG Short Stay as my rental agent?

We never charge landlords twice

Online travel companies such as Booking.com will charge a percentage of the entire gross fee that the customer pays. We charge net of that fee, reducing the amount you pay us.

Hitting our targets

Every year since we have been trading we have achieved over 95% of the forecasted client payouts over our  complete portfolio. Even during the COVID pandemic, we hit our forecasted rates, with all our clients either breaking even or achieving a profit during what was the most challenging times on record for the hospitality and rental sector.

End-to-end experience

We’re an end to end agent and leave nothing out. From property assessment, refurbishment, staging and marketing to managing tenants, compliance and maintenance, you benefit from a 360 service leaving you to relax.

Fast response times

Instead of communicating over emails, we use WhatsApp for same day responses, if not within the hour. We pride ourselves on very fast response times to landlords and our customers. You can be assured of a proactive approach to any concerns or issues.

Getting started with short stay rentals

It’s quick and easy to get your property set up for short stay rentals. Here is a quick snapshot of the steps involved, and don’t forget, we’ll be with you every step of the way.

1. Desktop Appraisal

Over a call, we’ll ask for details of the property and give you an online estimate of your short stay rental valuation. Go through the set-up costs, projected monthly costs and income.

2. Visit the property
