Your home away from home

The Airbnb revolution has widely changed perceptions of short-let rental accommodation. For holiday-makers, staying in a private property can offer more space and a more personal, comfortable experience than a hotel.

But short-term leases aren’t just for tourists; our Corporate & Relocation Services department – the largest of its kind in London – works with over 600 multinational corporations relocation assistance for employees and their families. We can also assist if you’re researching a new area and choose to rent before committing to purchasing a property, a contract worker or current home-owner looking for alternative accommodation while work is being done to your property.

Whatever your reason for moving, we’re here to help you every step of the way.

How does a short-term, or short-let tenancy differ from a standard long-let tenancy?

There are several key differences in the process of securing a short-let tenancy agreement compared to a normal longer-term tenancy agreement:

  • A short-let tenancy is for a term of between four weeks and up to 6 months
  • Importantly, all monies must be paid in full and in advance, including a 4 week deposit
  • Normally, utility bills are included in the rental amount, with the exception of telephone and broadband fees, payment of which will be detailed in your tenancy agreement
  • Please ask your negotiator for any further information

When you register with Marsh & Parsons, the process of finding a short-term rental property is the same as any normal rental process, except you’ll be assigned a specialist account manager through our Corporate & Relocation Services department to guide you through the process. They’ll find out your exact requirements and provide you with detailed advice on budget, location and any other variables that will help you to make the best decision, all before you land at Heathrow.

We’re well versed in matching tenants from around the world with their ideal properties. When you’re ready, we will arrange viewings for some suitable properties with you or your employee.

Why choose a short-let property over hotel accommodation?

A home away from home
There are some fantastic hotels in London offering an excellent service, but ultimately you are always under their rule feel somewhat like you’re living out of a suitcase. If you’re settling in for a while, your experience may feel much more at home if to stay slightly off the tourist trail, perhaps in a more suburban area or possibly in a portered block overlooking the Thames.

Most importantly however, short-lets are generally cheaper than the average London Hotel. This can lead to a significant saving, especially if the stay is for several months.To summarise, short-lets give you the freedom and flexibility to live much more like a local and can also save you money!
