'Airbnb' management in West Bridgford

There is a strong growth in the amount of landlords deciding to offer their properties on a short let ' Airbnb'  basis. Landlords are increasingly worried about the future of the Private Rented Sector & want to explore the benefits of operating a short let rental. This evolving market is adapting in terms of recognition & importantly legislation with a new Registration Scheme For Short Term Properties likely to become law in early 2024. There are some real opportunities for the considered property investor willing to offer properties which are likely to pass the future requirements of growing short let regulation. Landlords with carefully selected rental properties may well benefit from reduced competition as many city airbnb leasehold apartments are likely to fail the new regulations...so better placed landlords can move into this new market.

We look after your property

Our Property Management Team have been looking after properties for over 20 years.

Housekeeping

We keep our standards high, carrying out spot checks on the cleaning companies we us. (nb. cleaning costs are charged in addition to our management commission). Some of our local short stay clients carryout their own changeover cleaning and laundry, which does make a significant  saving to the running cost of a short stay let, and allows the landlord to keep a close eye on their investment property. Landlord Direct offer landlords who organise their own changeover cleaning a reduced management commission.

 

 

 

Laundry

We use a local laundry service for our short stay properties. We ask that you provide at least three sets of bed linen and towels for your property and our housekeepers then handle the change over laundry, again taking a pride in the presentation. (nb. laundry costs are charged in addition to our management commission).

 

 

 

We use professional and trusted local tradesmen

Unfortunately there can be more problematic maintenance issues that can arise from time to time, and we have trusted local contractors ready to deal with such eventualities. The most likely repairs of this nature may be plumbing leaks, heating issues, or problems with kitchen appliances. We can also schedule in planned maintenance such as decorating or carpet cleans, which are often carried out in low season. (nb. any repairs required are quoted to you and we do not add on handling charge
