Why invest in Serviced Accommodation?
In terms of the investment return, renting out a two-bedroomed apartment to holidaymakers can produce an eye-catching income of between £12,000 £15,000 per annum. Larger properties can average up to £30,000 a year gross. Some of our landlords have seen a increase in their rental income of over 150% in the first six months!
The benefit of serviced accommodation as a property investing strategy is that you can do it in everything from studio apartments to large detached houses.
If you operate under the “furnished holiday letting” rules, you can offset all expenses including full mortgage interest against the rental income. Running a serviced accommodation business is treated by HMRC in the same way as any trading business, so losses can be carried forward and offset against future profits. Furnished serviced accommodation also qualifies for entrepreneurs’ relief.

Below are just a couple of examples of testimonials from our landlords and guests.
I am a single professional female working in Hereford on a flexible contract and required serviced accommodation for this period of time whilst away from home. Due to the distance from home I travel by train and required accommodation in walking distance of work in central Hereford. I originally viewed a property from rentmyhouse and although it was lovely it was not in the right geographical location.
However Mike and Carey took my details and took the time and trouble to ascertain my requirements both in terms of geography and importantly for me safety. I needed a property that provided me an all in package in respect of furnishings , household equipment , washing machine and utilities. I had really struggled to find anything suitable in the locality.
Subsequent to our discussions Mike and Carey sourced me a two bed flat meeting all my requirements and fitted it out to a high specification in an extremely quick turn round time. It has been thoughtfully fitted out even down to pictures on the wall and cleaning products.
With a weekly comprehensive clean, change of bedding and towels the service has been first class and the accommodation excellent.
This accommodation and service makes living away from home and a busy job manageable and stress reducing knowing that all my creature comforts are there and I have a home from home that friends and family can stay over in and enjoy the local area.
Beyond the accommodation Mike and Carey are friendly but professional and I am confident that should I need anything they would be on hand and respond quickly and efficiently . Equally they are not overbearing and leave you to get on with it safe in the knowledge that they are a phone call or email away.
I have been more than satisfied with the quality of accommodation and the friendly emphatic service and would highly recommend rentmyhouse especially for professionals requiring short term serviced accommodationMs L
RentMyHouse have recently taken over the management of our rental property and they have exceeded our expectations. The team at RentMyHouse are extremely professional, efficient and knowledgeable with regard to all aspects of managing our property and its bookings.
So far, we have seen an increase with our monthly rental income through RentMyHouse more than what we used to achieve through a long term let. We are really pleased with how bookings have gone so far and never thought that the first two months would have done as well as they have.
