Step 3: Is a short let right for you?
A short let is ideal if you are looking for a short term residential solution and offers a good alternative to staying in a hotel or serviced apartment.

They are especially popular with visitors to the capital, people getting to know a new area or those renovating or moving home. A short let can offer you flexibility in rental length and is usually furnished to a high standard with all bills included in the rent (excluding telecommunication services).

Step 5: Consider a managed property
An increasing number of tenants insist on renting fully managed properties for complete peace of mind.

Renting a managed property has the benefit of a dedicated Property Manager to handle your day-to-day issues, a 24-hour helpline with emergency contact details should a problem arise and the assurance that your property is fully compliant with all safety regulations (including Gas Safety, Electrical Safety and Furniture and Furnishings acts).

In order to secure a property we recommend an early viewing. We will chauffeur you to your viewings ensuring you arrive in a relaxed frame of mind and accompany you throughout so that we are on hand to answer any questions immediately and advise where necessary.
