Subletting is a great way of earning an extra income from your Holiday Home. There has been a huge increase in demand for holidays at our parks and as a holiday home owner you could benefit from this too. Subletting your holiday home through Wyldecrest Parks, even for just a few weeks in the peak summer season, could generate an income that you can use as a contribution towards your site fees. In return, we will manage the whole process from start to finish and you share in the holiday rental revenue generated.
What do we need from you?
Simply let us know what dates you won’t be using your holiday home and we’ll do the rest, as easy as that! Your holiday home will be assessed by us to ensure that it fits into one of our rental grade categories and has the required inventory and certification. The grade will depend on a number of different factors including size, number of bedrooms, age, condition and its features. Once we have graded your holiday home, we will explain how much you could receive as a rental income. If you’re happy to proceed, we’ll begin the process of marketing your holiday home to our holiday guests and begin to take bookings on your behalf. Remember, the sooner you let us know that you would like to sublet your holiday home, the sooner we can begin to advertise your holiday home and the more chance there is of letting it for the best price.
What is required to sublet through us?
A full inventory is required in order to let your holiday home. If you need a list of what is needed, please let us know and we can supply this for you. You will probably have many of those items already.
There are a number of additional requirements including gas, electric checks and insurance. A flat screen TV is also part of the inventory. All gas and electrical equipment must be checked once a year in accordance with Health and Safety legislation, and also with Wyldecrest’s Park Rules. This testing has to be organised through Wyldecrest, the cost of which can be debited from your account (please see your Park manager for more details). A smoke alarm, carbon monoxide detector and fire extinguisher of at least 1kg dry powder with an indicator dial must be installed in your holiday home and checked at least once a year. You should consider removing any personal items that you keep in your holiday home over and above the required inventory prior to a holiday let commencing, as Wyldecrest Parks cannot be held liable for any damage, breakage or loss to this property.
All holiday homes must be of a modern and clean appearance, and fit into our current holiday home grading’s for the holiday park it is situated on. Holiday homes to sublet must be no older than 10 years. In order to sublet your holiday home, it must be equipped with all of the items listed on the inventory list. All gas and electrical appliances are to be inspected once a year, and must be properly certificated. This also includes a smoke, carbon monoxide alarm and fire extinguishers.
All checks and certification have to be arranged by Wyldecrest Parks at the owners cost. All inspection certificates must be given to the park reception. The owner must provide two sets of keys to the Park office before the first holiday let can take place.
Pets are accepted on some of our accommodation units, however you may specifically request that pets are not accepted in your holiday home.
Wyldecrest Parks will be acting as the sole booking agent only on behalf of the owner. Wyldecrest will carry out all marketing activities to promote your holiday home, as well as all administration of bookings including collection of all payments. Any bookings must go through Wyldecrest to prevent from double booking.
Commission is paid to third parties such as Hoseasons, who feature many of our parks in their brochures and on their website and this fee is deducted from the cost of the break.
