Advice for Holiday Home Owners
HOLIDAY COTTAGE OWNERS’ INFORMATION
This information is freely supplied because we believe that offering help, advice and guidance will benefit everyone. Much of the below was developed and first published by our sister web site www.countryholidaylets.co.uk as Home Owners Info Pack
This page is to help home owners learn more about renting out a cottage or letting a holiday home in the UK. You are welcome to copy or print it in its entirety for your personal use, for your own holiday cottage letting operation or to pass it, or the page link, on to others for their personal use or for their own vacation rental holiday cottage letting operations. This information is provided by way of contrast and to prompt further investigation before acting. As ever, seek relevant professional or competent people to check before taking any decisions. Where applicable all contents of this website are copyright Country Holiday Lets Ltd.
Many try to keep secrets for fear of helping competitors or encouraging home owners to go it alone. The Internet has put an end to the usefulness of this dated behaviour; we do not believe in unnecessary barriers or delays to getting things done. Service and value are what matters.
The key is to pick up as much as possible to avoid the cost of learning from grim experience. We looked at how the market responded and changed our business model to meet what the market wanted: the benefits of a booking service without the restrictions and many of the charges and costs, until now, applied by large national agencies. Meanwhile, we see that advertising and listing web sites often offer little added value and their formats can restrict higher quality cottages from showing their true worth. High quality can suffer when in the company of moderate or poor quality offerings.
The message is very clear: homeowners want value, service and quality; as important, they want to feel their holiday home is theirs and to keep it fully under their control . Of course, we would be delighted to get bookings for you but, if not, we do hope all this will be useful.
All information, here, should be supplemented with professional guidance where appropriate. If there is any doubt, err on the side of caution. If you find faults or errors, we would be most grateful if you could tell us so we can correct them. You can contact us on 01568 612900 and ask for Charles Cawley or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org This would be by way of help in return for any use you have found from this information.
If you would like a one to one consultation to discuss your personal situation and get more focussed advice this can be arranged. Please contact Charles Cawley on email@example.com to arrange a telephone consultation, prices from £55.00 plus vat.
