The benefits of a short let approach

Enjoy an income from your property for short term rentals

Perhaps you’re considering buying a second home in East Sussex or maybe you have a holiday home which you enjoy on an occasional basis?

Or you might have properties which are let on a traditional long term basis and want to explore the potentially more lucrative returns available from switching to a short let model?

We have guests keen to book a short let

We have an ever increasing number of guests requiring short term rentals in Eastbourne and East Sussex, who are prepared to pay good rates for well located and maintained accommodation.

Our properties enjoy surprisingly high occupancy levels across the year, and with better yields for short lets versus traditional long term lets, owners can gain a significant return on their investment.

Enjoy the tax benefits of ‘holiday letting’

You have the potential for significant tax savings versus traditional long term letting as a ‘furnished holiday let’ (HMRC’s classification).

Furnished holiday lets are able to enjoy tax relief by off-setting the running costs (such as utilities) and capital allowances for furniture and white goods.

Holiday lets are also exempt from the proposed changes to higher rate interest relief announced.

See the HMRC helpsheet for more information and guidance as well as information on qualifying criteria).

Take a holiday yourself??

You have complete flexibility to enjoy a stay at your property when it suits you, either planned in advance or taking advantage of a last minute gap.
