A Flexible Friend

October 2005

The requirement for short term, flexible contracts is more and more common in the current letting market. Flexible lets are required by people such as those between house moves or professionals in the area for short term contract work and are unable to commit to a specific length contract. The problem they find is that it is increasingly difficult to find letting agents that are able to offer such flexibility in a tenancy.

Bournecoast Residential in Southbourne are able to work together with Bournecoast Holidays to offer a solution. Furnished holiday properties are able to offer short term tenancies during the winter months, to a maximum of eight months. The difference with these contracts is that they also allow the flexibility required whereby after the second month it is possible to give one months written notice with no penalty. This gives people the security of knowing they have a roof over their heads, but if things move quicker than expected, they have an opt out clause, only tying them in to 3 months.

“We have had some extremely positive feedback from clients such as local house purchasers, company H R Departments and trainee Pilots who have taken advantage of these types of contracts. As unique short term contracts they allow us to offer accommodation from one week to 8 months. With the current availability offering tenants many wonderful locations, at very reasonable cost, we feel that we are in the enviable position of being able to say we have something for everyone” stated Des Simmons, Director of Bournecoast Ltd.
