- tired of achieving low rental yields from long term letting
- own a property in Edinburgh that you'd like to use yourself from time to time
- or would like your home to pay for your holiday over the Edinburgh Festival
Then short term letting could be the answer for you.
There are enormous tax advantages in operating a property as a holiday let property from both an income tax and inheritance tax point of view too.
We are a specialist one-stop-shop for short term letting and organise lets from a minimum of three nights up to six months. We offer self catering & holiday lets, short term and corporate lets, festival accommodation and city & weekend breaks.
Established in 1997 letting properties during the festival, in 2006 we saw that there was a demand for quality short term lets that was not being met by the Edinburgh market and so we decided to expand our business to offer short term lets all year round. Short lets offer customers the flexibilty they need, whether they are in between houses, are having work done on their own house, need a temporary home due to insurance work or are in Edinburgh on a short term contract. There are so many different reasons people need short lets.
Our apartments and houses need to feel like a home from home. We like to look after properties that are special, unique or totally Edinburgh. Special to us means things like style, architecture, history, views, location and atmosphere and we're lucky in Edinburgh that so many properties have these features.
Over the summer, if you need some extra money to do that work to the bathroom you've been dreaming of, or would like your home to help pay for your holiday, then a Festival Let could well be the answer for you. We've been working with the quality Festival venues, promotional companies and media groups for over ten years now and understand how to match the right people with the right apartment, meaning that we experience very few problems.
If you have an apartment which you like to use from time to time yourself, then short lets could be perfect for you as they offer you the flexibility to do that. All we ask is that you always keep us up to date with times you'll be using your apartments so that we can make sure the availability calendar on our website is always correct.
Short term letting requires more hands on involvement from owners with changeovers and making sure the apartment is immaculately presented, but Dickins can do as much or as little of this work on your behalf as you need us too. We have a trusted group of professional trades people who we can instruct to do work for you if the need arises. We do handle all the keys in the office so you don't need to worry about that, and we operate a 24 hour emergency helpline for customers too.
All our properties are located in the centre of Edinburgh within 15 minutes walk of Princes Street. Broadband is essential these days and parking will help in many instances as short let customers can't apply for a parking permit.
