THIS WEEK - FUN ON THE FLOOR

Image
I was selected to attend an event at the London Frame Studio
organised by Total Greek yoghurt and of course I dragged my
American guest along with me to share the experience.
We were happy/nervous pupils being taught how to Rumba, Salsa
and Tango by the pros - Dee Thresher celebrity fitness expert and

and Room for travellers (roomsft), to help showcase your

so instead of saying 'nice' say 'clean' and state key terms
and conditions such as cancellations policy and deal breaker
terms.

SET STANDARDS

Know the rental value and how much you want.
Know who you want to rent your property to, couples,
over 18 year olds, men only or families only.
Standards should really be stated upfront in a
lease agreement usually a shorthold agreement or
guardian agreement.

HAVE A BUDGET
