Your lease will almost certainly contain a requirement for the property to be used for private, residential purposes only. Any short-term letting without granting an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement will therefore be a breach of the lease.

Short term letting can be disruptive to neighbouring owners and can also increase the risk profile of the building where occupants are coming and going without becoming familiar with the health and safety procedures for the building.  Short term letting in breach of the lease can therefore lead to increased building insurance premiums or in extreme circumstances, invalidation of existing building insurance cover.

As a result of this, we will take all necessary steps to enforce any breach of lease which might affect the rights of neighbouring leaseholders. All costs associated with such action will be recovered from the defaulting leaseholder.

Please seek independent advice to understand the terms of your lease before considering any short term letting arrangement.
