Short term lets

Short term lets are on the rise across the Capital and we are perfectly placed to help.

Short term lets can often provide a more cost effective and flexible alternative to a hotel, whilst providing the additional comfort of a home from home. These tenancies can range from just a few weeks up to six months, can be arranged in as little as 24 hours and avoid the complex referencing checks of usual tenancies, streamlining the process for all parties involved. With utility bills included (excluding telephone and internet use) and high quality furnishings, simply bring your suitcase and experience truly living in London.


Letting your property on a short let basis provides increased flexibility and efficiency. This can be the right choice for you if you are:

  • Securing occupancy during void periods or whilst securing a long term tenancy
  • Waiting for completion on the sale of a property
  • Uncertain about committing to a long term let
  • Going away on holiday or if you are working abroad for a set period of time

We offer a fully flexible short let service. You can choose to take up our full property management service and we will manage your let property and tenants.

For more information, view our short let guide for landlords or talk to a KFH letting agent.

*Short term lets are subject to local authority restrictions.


In our experience, tenants often look for short lets in London if they are:

  • Corporate tenants relocating to London through employment
  • Tourists looking to live in London eventually and would like to experience the life of a ‘local’
  • People researching an area before committing to renting long term or buying
  • Contract workers looking for accommodation
  • Tenants awaiting completion dates when purchasing a property
  • Families visiting London for on-going hospital care
  • Looking for alternative option while work is being done on an existing property
  • Working for media or insurance companies and requiring accommodation during a project
