Holiday Parkletting

Did you know, that many holiday parks offeringlodges for sale or renting, also offer to handle your renting arrangements if you own a holiday home within their parks?

Take Away Resorts, for example, who offer to manage your lettings as soon as your sale completion has gone through, for a small percentage of the rental income. As part of their package, they’ll take care of the marketing and advertising of your property, bookings and payments, cleaning and hygiene standards, maintenance and upkeep, and so much more.

Before listing your lodge to let/rent out with the holiday park, it’s always good to check with the holiday park about their fees, the local council and/or your mortgage provider, and look into what holiday home insurance covers and what it doesn’t cover etc.

And, above anything else, it’s wise to do some research into every fine detail and terms and conditions, just to be fully aware of what everything means etc.

All you have to do is sit back and relax, knowing everything is being taken care of, whilst also reaping the benefits of letting out your holiday home and peace of mind that whoever is renting your property is enjoying their stay.

Letting on your own terms

Of course, you don’t have to use the park lettings service, you can instead run the lettings etc., on your own accord.

We do still advise you check with your council, park management and mortgage provider, as well as the terms and conditions of your holiday home cover, to see what you’re covered on and what you’re not.

Letting on your own terms can be a little trickier, but still manageable, if you’re only offering to your friends and family. We suggest you do write up some sort of agreement, just to cover you in the rare cases.

Whichever letting option you chose for your holiday home away from home, make sure it’s the right option for you.Ensure all terms and conditions have been read, and that you’ve crossed all the T’s and dotted all the I’s.

And most of all, don’t forget to enjoy your holiday home yourself too. Take yourself away to recharge your batteries, destress and enjoy your surroundings.
