Could your property be an Olympic winner?

With only a couple of months to go, canny home owners with properties located London or close to the Olympic Games venues are getting ready to cash in on short-term let opportunities.

Do you have a property that has easy access to the some of the UK’s Olympic Games venues?  If so, it could be wise to consider letting your home out for the event weeks.  Depending on the size and location of your property, moving in with friends or relatives for  a short while could pay huge dividends.  Letting your home out to strangers however doesn’t come without its risks.  For that reason it is essential that you work with a reputable lettings agent to ensure potential short term tenants are vetted properly and that all relevant deposits, lettings agreements and inventories are in place to protect your interests.

Short-term event tenants come in all shapes and sizes so it isn’t necesary to have a huge house or a top quality penthouse appartment.  All types of property could prove popular.  If you are tempted at the prospect of letting out your home on a short-term basis for the Olympic period, take a look at the examples below and contact your local Countrywide lettings agent for further information.
