New Owner's Page | The Lower Mill Estate

Hello ! - A Very Warm Welcome...

"Thank you for stopping by & taking an interest in our new owner's page."

Lakeside Spa Holidays offer a bespoke property rental service, for a limited number of property owner’s, located on the Lower Mill Estate.

Please forgive us for blowing our own trumpet for a moment, but we are rather proud of what we have accomplished over the last 11 years of marketing homes at The Lower Mill Estate.

We typically achieve what is in our opinion, leading industry returns for our ownerpartners, with the majority of our properties running at close to 100% occupancy levels year on year.

 
We achieve between 40 & 55 bookings a year, for each property that we market, often achieving close to 100% occupancy levels - typically this compares with an industry average of around 15 & 20 bookings per year, per property.

This is almost unheard of in the holiday rental market, with the average occupancy level being much closer to 50% - 60% across the industry.

Please take a look around this new owner's section, there is a lot of information here that hopefully you will find useful.


"We very much look forward to hearing from you & discussing your individual requirements...

...Please do get in touch by using the contact form, or by calling one of our Directors, on the contact number's below"

How much can I expect to earn?

 

"Typically we achieve between 40 - 55 bookings per year, for each property that we market - By comparison, this can compare to an industry average of circa 15 - 20 bookings per year."

"This can translate to up to 3 x the bookings that you might expect from other agents, which of course translates into substantially more revenue for our owners."

This very high level of occupancy is almost unheard of in the holiday rental market, with the average occupancy level being closer to 60% across the industry.

We are able to achieve such high occupancy levels & financial returns for our owners, due to the fact that we strictly limit the number of properties that we market, currently set at a maximum of circa 20 - 25 x  Properties.

We would be delighted to carry out a full market appraisal of your holiday property & provide you with a detailed projected income schedule, showing you how much you can expect to earn from your property.
 

Contact Us HERE & we will promptly reply to you - usually within 1 hour of your enquiry.

How much do you charge?

We charge a competative commission on the total achieved revenue for all bookings for your property.

Sorry, but we cannot take on properties that have a high level of peak slot owner bookings.

"Our commission rate will depend on the individual property, the size of the property, the potential income & the number of owner's week's that you would pre-book for your own use."

We apply a highly competative commission charge, which will be dependant on a number of factors.

We would be delighted to prepare an individual quotation & detailed potential income forecast,  based on your property, or should you prefer, initially to have an informal chat on the telephone & discus your requirements.

New owner's criteria...

"In order to fully maximise the rental returns for each individual owner, we strictly limit the number of holiday properties that we market on our site, to a maximum of 20 x Properties."

We have a wealth of experiance of renting out properties located on the Lower Mill Estate.

We do apply a minimum criteria for new properties

  • Your property is located on The Lower Mill Estate

  • Lower level of owner bookings, very happy to chat this criteria through - Please call to discuss

  • MINIMUM of 3 x Bedrooms (Sorry, we are unbale to market 2 x bedroom properties)

  • MINIMUM number of owner bookings for PEAK SLOTS - VERY IMPORTANT

  • Ideally your property will have some unique distinguishing feature, maybe there is a private garden, perhaps it has a hot tub, maybe it is located within one of the exclusive gated communities within the estate, perhaps it has fantastic views.

We apologise if the above is limiting, but we have a good knowledge of what work's best for both ourselves & our owner partners

Please accept our apologies if your property does not meet our strict criteria, we would be delighted to provide you with details of some excellent local rental companies that we have had personal experience with and can highly recommend.

FAQ's - Any Questions ?

When do you pay me the rent that is due ?

  • Excellent question! We pay the rent that your property is due, net of our commission at the beginning of the month, after the bookings have taken place.

    For example, if you achieved £ 5,350.00 rent in June, we would pay you on or before the 7th of July.

    All payments are made electronically via bank transfer, directly into your nominated bank account.

How will I know what bookings I have ?

  • We will email you a detailed spreadsheet listing each booking at the end of each month.

    This clearly shows the gross rent for each booking, the booking reference number, along with the total revenue achieved that month for your property and our commission that is due. This report is usually emailed across to you, but can also be posted if required.

What about higher risk bookings?


  • We strictly vet ALL of our bookings and simply do not take bookings that may be considered high risk, we do not accept all adult parties and each month we refuse on average 100+ or so bookings. Unfortunately we do all too often see thease bookings being accepted by other agancies, but we will not compromise on our own booking criteria.

    As experienced owners ourselves, we fully appreciate and understand the importance of matching the right guests to your property.

Are you able to offer a "hand off" service?


  • Absolutely! - You can quite literally leave absolutely everything to us and we will simply send you a cheque and a bookings report at the end of each month.

    We fully appreciate that the rental of your holiday property will likely not be your man source of income and that you may very well have time commitments elsewhere.

    We will deal with absolutely everything, from the initial setting up of the property, the landlords legal responsibilities, liaising with the cleaners, the initial photography, the videos, the welcome packs, the website marketing, installing a key safe if needed, right through to accepting and personally welcoming each one of your guests.

    So you can quite literally sit back and wait for the money to roll in !

Is 20 x Properties, the maximum number on your web site?


  • Another great question! - The simple answer is YES, we really do focus on providing all of our limited number or owners with the very maximum possible levels of financial return

    Please remember that in order to maximise the rental returns for each of our individual owners, we have decided to limit the maximum number of properties to around 20, which obviously means that there are only a very limited number of slots still available.

    Of course, not everybody's property will meet our strict rental criteria, but we do still expect demand for those few last slots to be high, so please don't delay in contacting us and we can prepare your individual property income forecast.

Do I need to pay VAT on the income that I earn?


  • Under the current guidelines you need not register for VAT if the total income for your holiday lets does not exceed £ 77,000 in any 12 month period.

Do we have to have to give you exclusivity on our property ?


  • The simple answer is yes, we have tried jointly marketing properties before and we are afraid it simply does not work for either party.

    There is too much potential for guest confusion and problems with bookings, double bookings, out of date calendars etc

    Anyway, if your holiday property meets with our criteria, then we will fill it for you year round and you really won't need to jointly market the property.

What about the rental paperwork and the contract?


  • We take care of all of the guest paperwork on your behalf, including getting a signed copy of our terms and conditions from every guest on arrival, in our opinion and past experience, this is absolutely vital for ensuring a problem free rental and provides you peace of mind.

    We have a very simple and straight forward contact, which details the main points of our agreement and the key financial points.
