How flexible letting works

Taking advantage of the peaks of short lets whilst keeping the stability of long lets gives you the best possible chance of achieving the highest rental yield, securely. We adhere to the 90-day legal limit for short-term lets, then combine other lengths of let for the rest of the year to get the best returns. Your occupancy rates are maximised, and we do all the hard work to get you there.

Higher occupancy rates

With our flexible lettings model and expertise in preparing properties for the market, we guarantee higher than market average occupancy rates.

Reduced operational costs

Our industry-leading smart technology, DRIVE, also lets us streamline and automate operations. When a resident books a stay, a cleaning is automatically arranged.

Bespoke performance reports

With DRIVE, our online management platform, you get real-time access to bookings and finances - so you can keep track of how your portfolio is performing in just a few clicks.

Reasons to invest in buy to let

High demand

There are more people who can’t buy a property than there are who can, which means the demand for rentals will always be high.

Consistent income

You can earn a good, passive income from a buy to let property as long as you have access to the right residents, operations staff and letting strategy. 

Easy to predict

With the right expertise, it is fairly easy to get into buy to let investment and predict earnings on rental income and capital growth. 

How we optimise your income with buy to let

Our service is built to battle some of the most common issues investors have with the buy to let strategy.

Our flexible lettings strategy combines short, mid and long-term contracts to maximise occupancy and boost yield - 40% higher than the market average in fact - for a consistent income.
