Fire safety laws and your property

In England and Wales as the owner of a short let property you are considered the ‘responsible person’ when it comes to fire safety for your property. This means that you are responsible for completing a fire safety risk assessment, improving your fire safety measures if necessary and keeping the risks under review.

Trip Advisor-Love it or loathe it!

Trip AdvisorSince TripAdvisor reviews were launched on the Holiday Lettings listings site last year, enquiries for properties with reviews have increased by 40%, even to those with only one review. We have also found that the reviews have encouraged undecided guests to go ahead and make a booking.

Foodies festival

At Weekly Home we love food, so we were very excited to take part in the 2012 Foodies Festival in South Park, Oxford.  The festival took place over the August bank holiday weekend and was a celebration of all things culinary. It was a great success with over 19,000 visitors from across the county.

Estate agent opinion of why to invest in a short let property

This post is brought to you by James Cridland of Cridland & Co estate agents

The days of the standard assured short-hold tenant and the "quick buck" landlord are gone. But in their place are new types of both tenants and landlords who have moved with the times, with short lets being a significant growth market.

Cridland & Co Estate Agents

If you thought that all estate agents were the same then you haven’t found Cridland & Co. Their approach to buying and selling houses is a little different to most estate agents. Their mission is to sell every property they receive. This might seem like a strange thing to say but not all estate agents have their client’s needs at heart.

Cridland & Co was founded by James Cridland in March 2011.

Holiday home insurance

When choosing insurance for your holiday home, make sure that your policy covers commercial holiday lettings and not just family use. As well as building and contents insurance you will need public liability insurance; giving you protection in the event of any legal issues associated with holiday lettings.

Holiday home insurance is a different product to usual lettings insurance and there are several companies who offer cover specifically for holiday homes.
