Larger Furnishings

Whilst home comforts and necessities are obviously important things to consider, heavier furnishings etc are not recommended as anything brought with you will have to be moved multiple times. Having to move things such as wardrobes around multiple times is not necessary. This is due to the fact your short term let will likely have all the basics there already. 

With this in mind, the cost and effort of moving things you don’t need should always be a primary consideration in any such circumstance. We would recommend contacting the letting agency to gain a full understanding of the furnishings included with the property. 

Travel Preparations 

Once you arrive at your letting accommodation, it is important to have a plan for travel, be it essential or otherwise. If you work, it is important to establish how you will travel, especially if your new temporary accommodation is further away from your place of work. Also, if you rely on public transport, it will pay to ensure you are aware of the timetable in your new area. 

Choosing the Right Property for You

Although short lets are just that, temporary accommodation, they can still last anywhere up to six months. This is still long enough to warrant caution and consideration in your decision making. You can opt for finished, semi furnished or even unfurnished lets, whilst unfurnished lets tend to be cheaper you should consider the logistics of moving all your heavy furnishings in. 

Other simple yet easy to overlook things such as the letting agencies tolerance for pets on the premises and other rights and responsibilities as a tenant should be thoroughly understood prior to moving into the property.
