Long Letting to a Short Let Company

Hi. Has anyone had experience renting out long let to a company, usually run by one or two individuals, who then let short term to others? Is it common? Is it a good idea?

Rent to rent. Certainly many landlords here feel not a good idea.

You leave yourself completely exposed to risk.

It’s the latest thing, people with no knowledge about renting properties promising landlords a risk free deal. Never would I touch it.


Google rent to rent problems for a fuller picture.

As others have said, High risk, no control, could be illegal hmo etc etc
Personally I’d avoid like the plague
