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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
