Typically a short let will span a few weeks to 6 months (maximum) and offer some great advantages, such as:

  • Advance Rental Payments
  • Corporate tenants
  • Flexibility
  • High returns on your property
  • Higher calibre of tenants
  • Minimise void periods

Should you use a Property Management service?

  • Often tenants will pay more for a professionally managed property
  • Organise repairs (including emergency repairs)
  • Transfer utilities

Step 6

Property Preparation & Inventory

Wycombe Sales and Lettings are pleased to organise a comprehensive inventory of your property and its contents. This must be undertaken prior to obtaining the perfect tenant to document the condition and items that are inside your property.
N.B If you are offering your property as a Short Let then we will require that you arrange the council tax, TV license and utilities be organised. That is because these costs are inclusive of a short let tenancy ( telecommunications are the tenants responsibility so you don’t have to organise this).
