Become a super host with Holiday Let

Holiday let is for people who choose short-term lets over long-term rentals. It’s designed for landlords who prefer Trip Adviser reviews to six-monthly inspections.

As a specialist lender, Hodge has handily packed up all your holiday let essentials into its brand-new product. If you’re ready to turn your landlord dreams into a reality, Hodge Holiday Let could help.

What is holiday let?

A holiday let loan is designed for landlords with properties they’d like to let out on a short-term basis as holiday accommodation.

Holiday let mortgages are considered a specialist type of lending, so you won’t find one as easily as a standard mortgage. As with buy-to-let mortgages, holiday let is not currently regulated.

With some holiday rentals making more in a single week than a traditional long-term rental does in a month, becoming a holiday let landlord could earn you a healthy income

Holiday let vs buy-to-let

Quite simply, a holiday let mortgage is for people who want a property they can rent out on a short-term basis, while buy-to-let mortgages are for those who want to rent over a longer term.

Since mortgage interest relief was reduced on traditional buy-to-let properties, holiday let offers tax advantages that buy-to-let no longer can.

The fact the property isn’t let out year-round like a buy-to-let property means affordability will be calculated differently to allow the lender to take into account the rise and fall of rental income depending on high or low season.
