Are you a Landlady suitable for Japanese lodgers?
As a woman who is living in a house with spare rooms, the idea of renting out a room to strangers is pretty daunting. You want your home to be your home, not a hostel. You want your life to be calm and manageable not disturbed by others. You want extra income though and the idea of renting a room does have a certain appeal.
Well, what if there was a solution that allowed you to keep the harmony of your own home whilst obtaining extra income from renting a room out? Welcome to Wonderful Lodgers where our cultural advisory service works with you to identify suitable Japanese lodgers for your home.
Then who are the landladies we are ideally looking for?
1. You will hold a clean property in London – zone 1 or 2. Maybe zone 3, but only at a push.
2. Ideally, you will be near to a tube station and by close we mean not more, precisely not more, than 8 minutes walk. Good, close bus services can be attractive, but a tube station is the most popular. Overground rail is the least popular transport for the Japanese.
3. You will be a landlady who will be flexible with the rent rather than look for the highest possible market rent. Our landladies understand that Japanese lodgers are here on fixed budgets and the exchange rate between the Japanese yen and the pound is not favourable for them. Our landladies, therefore, pitch their rent to this niche market when they could get more on the open market. What they do is buy peace of mind and some sense of security for a good reliable rent rather than go for top dollar and take the risks.
4. We do not deal with agents under any circumstances.
