Introducing Checked Inn – A New Innovative Property Rental Service.
The world is getting smaller and the way we live is changing as a result. Whereas homeownership was once seen as the definitive goal for millennials, a shrinking world has necessitated a more nomadic lifestyle for many. With house prices so high, most of this generation will struggle to get on the housing ladder any time soon.
It has changed the way we view and use property. The saying used to be “home is where the heart is”; now it’s wherever we need it to be.
The Old Way
Securing a mortgage has never been more difficult and laborious. Before you’ve even picked up the keys, you’ll have to deal with stamp duty, council tax, utilities and, of course, actually furnishing your new home. This in itself can prove a nightmare, particularly if you’re waiting for furniture to be delivered weeks afterwards.
For renting professionals who rely on living close to the action, these problems are compounded by the fact that they will rarely be expected to stay in one place for long. The minimum shorthold tenancy agreement is 6 months. If your work only requires a few of you in one location before moving you on elsewhere, this can prove problematic. Countless short-term occupants have been lumped with a situation where they are forced to pay a fee for leaving early.
The only other sensible option is hotel living, which is claustrophobic at the best of times and prohibitively more expensive than a short-term lease – unless you’re willing to slum it in a Travelodge for weeks on end! In essence, the traditional property models are no longer relevant to the many busy, cosmopolitan professionals who rely on city-centre living.
For modern professionals, the ways in which we live, work, and play have changed and require a different approach. Enter Checked Inn.
The New Way
Busy, transient souls long to circumvent the hassles and the crippling hidden costs associated with renting a property in the city centre. Checked Inn offers everything you need, right now, and right in the thriving and historic city centre of Cambridge – an electric community that continually gets voted as one of the best cities to live in the UK. It’s also a city with almost a quarter of a million workers, so has seen a notable demand for corporate relocation in recent years.
Checked Inn is all about effortless and inclusive city living without compromise for those caught in the gap between hotel nomadism and tentative tenancy agreements. Our properties are also a step above the ‘functional’ hotels rooms and basic short-term lets you might traditionally have had to settle for.
Our properties are expertly furnished to a stunning standard and run the gamut from spartan and contemporary to cool and classic. They are also all located either in CB1 itself or close to transport links to allow for a painless daily commute.
