A step-by-step guide to each stage of renting a property.
Step 1 – Register your interest
The first step to finding the right property is to register with us by either calling on +359 2 815 4080, visiting our office or by emailing us at email@example.com
You can also register your interest about a specific property online if you are short of time
Step 2 – Finding the right property
Once we have a clear understanding of your requirements you will receive a selection of properties that match your criteria. We can also keep you constantly up-to-date via email alerts when the latest properties become available.
Step 3 – Is a short term let right for you?
A short term let is ideal if you are looking for a short term residential solution and offers a good alternative to staying in a hotel or serviced apartment. They are especially popular with visitors to the capital, Sofia, people getting to know a new area or those renovating or moving home. A short let can offer you flexibility in rental length and is usually furnished to a high standard with all bills included in the rent (excluding telecommunication services).
If you need a short term let property then please contact us
Step 4 – Is a serviced apartment what you need?
Some people, expats or people relocating to Sofia for the first time don’t want to or don’t have the time to be dealing with maintaining and managing their home. By renting a serviced property all you need to do is bring your clothes and toiletries and we will manage your property. A serviced rental includes, payment of utility & telecommunications services, cleaning, changing of bed lines and towels and maintenance all included in the monthly rental fee.
If you need a serviced property then please contact us
Step 5 – the benefit of Corporate Services
Our dedicated Corporate Services team assist hundreds of companies who are looking to find properties for their employees or offices. Renting a property through these specialist team has the benefit of your own dedicated Account Manager, detailed local information, advice and guidance on the letting process and rental market, centralised searching to save you the time and effort to register with several offices and a multilingual department.
Step 6 – Consider a managed property
Since we started providing property management services for properties back in 2007, an increasing large percentage of tenants now demand to rent a fully managed property which gives them complete peace of mind. Renting a managed property has the benefit of a dedicated Property Manager to handle your day-to-day issues, which includes out of office emergency contact should a major problem arise. It has been proven to tenants that maintenance and repairs within managed properties are fixed quicker and to tenants’ satisfaction more than non-managed properties, which is due to managed properties having access to a dedicated professional maintenance team.
Step 7 – The key to successful viewings
We are open at times to suit you and available for viewings before or after working hours, at weekends and public holidays. We are flexible to your needs. In order to secure a property we recommend an early viewing. We will arrange to meet you at your chosen property, or in the event you have selected a number of properties to view we can chauffeur you to these properties ensuring you arrive in a relaxed frame of mind. You will be accompanied throughout the viewing so that we are on hand to answer and questions and advise when needed.
Step 8 – Making an offer
Once you have identified a suitable property you will be required to complete an application for tenancy where you may state any special conditions of the offer and provide details for your references. We will then communicate this offer to the landlord.
Step 9 – Offer agreed
If your offer is accepted we will organise the following regardless of whether your property is managed:
- Request references from the referees that you have provided
- Arrange signing of the Tenancy Agreement
- Collect your moving in payment (rent + deposit)
Step 10 – Completion
Upon completion, you will be given a set of keys and if your property is managed we will provide you with your dedicated Property Manager’s contact details.
Congratulations, you can now move into your new home!
Visiting Sofia on business or pleasure? Hotel accommodation isn’t the only option available… A short term rental is often a more cost effective and convenient solution and can be arranged at short notice.
What is a short let?
A short let is a property which can be let from a few weeks to a few months (subject to local authority restrictions). You can short let any type of property from a studio to a ten bedroom house. When renting a property on a short let basis all utility bills are included in the rent (excluding telecommunication services).
Bring your suitcase and we’ll provide the rest. All our short let properties are furnished to a high standard with appliances and household items such as towels, linen, crockery and electrical goods are supplied. All you need to purchase are the consumables.
Frequent short let users
A significant number of large companies use short lets as a more cost effective and convenient solution to hotels. People who have encountered major damage to their property, or those that are in the process of renovating their property often choose short lets, in order to minimise disruption to lives by allowing them to remain in the area and close to the amenities they have become accustomed to. We also provide short lets for media companies making advertisements or films.
As a tenant – what are the benefits of taking a short let?
Flexibility – you have the option to extend your tenancy on a weekly or monthly basis at your landlord’s discretion.
Home comforts – the privacy of your own front door, plenty of space and a relaxing environment where you can come and go as you please.
If you are searching for a short let call us on +359 2 815 4080 and we’ll search for you.
As a landlord – why should I let my property on a short let basis?
Flexibility – if you are unsure of your plans and only want to rent for a short amount of time short lets allow you immense flexibility. Short lets can also allow your property to bring in rental income during void periods or whilst securing a long term tenant.
Choice – if you market your property on a short and long let basis you have the option to choose from multiple offers.
Efficiency – if you are going away on holiday or for business, letting your property on a short let basis can be a very efficient way of ensuring your home is occupied as well as bringing in rental income at the same time. Need more information? Call us on +359 2 815 4080
