    Hosting FAQs

    Who can use SevenStays services?

    SevenStays is a service designed for landlords, property investors and owners. If you own a property in the UK and want to boost your income without the hassle, then SevenStays is the Airbnb management company for you.

    My property is not on Airbnb, can I partner with SevenStays?

    Yes, we do all of that for you. We will list your property on Airbnb, along with all the best short term rental booking platforms like Booking.com and Vrbo.

    How can I earn more from my rental property through SevenStays?

    A nicely furnished property tends to have higher occupancy, and is able to set higher prices. We will do all we can to give your guests a memorable stay, and part of that includes sourcing stylish furniture that will compliment your property and living spaces, In turn this means that guests are more likely to leave us a high review, which should lead to higher prices, boosted occupancy, and larger profits for you.

    Can hosts set their own criteria?

    After testing various methods for guest checks, we are confident that our screening process combined with our deposit scheme is the most reliable and secure way of holding guests accountable. You can of course set certain criteria or house rules too, (e.g. ‘no pets’), if this suits your property best.

    Will I be able to choose my bookings?

    You can choose when your property is available for bookings throughout the year, and you can pre-set criteria as mentioned above, but beyond that hosts cannot choose individual bookings. We work this way to maximise occupancy and ensure an efficient booking process for guests.

    Is there a standard property needs to meet? What do I need to do to short let my property?

    To rent your property for short term rentals with SevenStays, we require that every property is self-contained (no other residents or guests) with a private bathroom, as well as essential amenities like kitchen facilities, TV, sofa, and bed. We also require that there is a working wifi connection, but our onboarding team can help with sourcing and setting up any of these items for you. Airbnb guests expect a comfortable stay, and these amenities will help your Airbnb listing attract positive reviews.

    Is there an onboarding fee? / What fees do I have to pay?

    There is a one-off onboarding service fee of £250 which covers photography, a deep clean, inventory, inspections, key setup, as well as health and safety checks. Then, depending on what your property has in it already, we can arrange furnishing.

    We provide a short let amenities pack which stocks your property with everything it needs to welcome guests and receive good reviews. This includes everything from cutlery and linen to Wi-Fi and lightbulbs, TV to kitchen appliances, towels, kitchenware, and bathroom necessities. Prices vary for this pack but on average it costs around £2000. Then, once your property is live we will charge an agreed percentage of net earnings.

    Can I register several accommodations?

    Yes, we have lots of hosts who own multiple properties, even across different buildings. Sometimes these landlords like to put some properties on short let with SevenStays, with others targeting tenants through our long let platform, SevenLiving, to compare earnings from the two.

    Can I freely set my pricing, the guest's days of arrival, the security deposit?

    Our in-house revenue team monitors local demand to set dynamic pricing for your listing, meaning you are always charging the best price while boosting occupancy. You can block out days where you don’t want any bookings, and we pre-authorise a security deposit of £200 per booking to cover any damages.

    Can I put different prices depending on the season?

    Our dynamic pricing strategy constantly monitors local demand and prices in real time, meaning you are always charging the best price while boosting occupancy.

    When/How will I be paid?

    Your payment is sent out on the 10th of every month by bank transfer, and the amount you receive refers to the previous month.

    Can I access or stay in my property?

    Yes – that is the beauty of short term rental with SevenStays. Unlike a lot of short term rental companies, we will never charge you to stay in your own property. We just ask that you try to give us advance notice so we can block out your property’s calendar, and that you pay a cleaning fee so that after you leave our cleaning team can make sure that it is sparkling ready for your next guests. You can stay as often as you like, but of course it goes without saying that the more you stay, the less income you will make. Lastly we do ask that you do not access the property while guests are staying there, unless we have sought permission from the guests.

    What is the minimum contract length?

    We expect a minimum contract length of 12 months due to the considerable set up required for onboarding new hosts and preparing their properties. We also feel that 12 months is the optimum amount of time to see true earnings, as pricing and earnings can fluctuate throughout the year.

    How long does it take to receive the first booking?

    Depending on the size and condition of the property, and whether it’s furnished or not, we can get properties live on the booking platforms within a few weeks. Once this is done our revenue team will get to work setting the best prices for your property according to demand, and you should receive your first booking shortly after. We can’t guarantee bookings within a certain time period, but we believe if it is marketed and priced correctly, it shouldn’t take too long to get booked up.

    What do I need to start hosting with SevenStays?

    By law, potential hosts will need a Gas Safety Certificate, EPC and EICR to start hosting. You will also need safety equipment including a fire extinguisher, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, first aid kit and fire door. If you are unsure about what your obligations and responsibilities are as a host, or how to meet any of them, your account manager will be happy to assist.
