Advice for landlords

It’s important to check your legal eligibility for renting out your property as a furnished short let. In the UK, you’ll need to do the following:

  • If you’re a council tenant, check with your local council that you can sublet your property.
  • If you’re a private tenant, you must check the terms of your tenancy agreement – in some cases, subletting is not legal.
  • If you’re an owner-occupier with a mortgage, be sure to check the terms or your mortgage and/or contact your mortgage provider
  • Gas and electricity repairs need to be complete – Sevenstays can help with this.
  • Furniture and mattresses must meet fire safety regulations – our team can check this before listing your property.

Once you’ve ticked the above boxes, we’ll work with you to deliver a seamless experience your guests will enjoy, bringing you five star reviews and high occupancy rates.

Tips for success

Research by Airbnb has shown that guests want a hotel experience, yet with the more personal feel of a home. This is what Airbnb and other rental platforms offer to their customers. There are some simple ways you can enhance your guests’ experience in your property, and encourage them to leave positive reviews – which in turn increase your occupancy rates and earnings.

  • Furnishings. Properties which are stylish and well arranged attract views on rental platforms. As a short term lets host, you can claim an allowance to purchase fixtures and furnishings from the UK government.
  • Amenities. Cleaning supplies, basic groceries like milk, sugar, tea and coffee, and cosmetics (shampoo, soap), can enhance guests’ experience. These small touches leave a positive impression for your guests.
  • Wifi. A strong wifi connection is always a plus point.
  • Guestbook/area guide. Providing a printed guide to the local area – including attractions, restaurant recommendations, etc – is a good way to stand out and impress your guests.
  • Welcome gift. A small gift, such as a box of chocolates, or welcome hamper, is another way to leave a good impression.
