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

Why choose a short-let property over hotel accommodation?
A home away from home
There are some fantastic hotels in London offering 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 ocean.
