Great advice Anthony clearing up loads of my questions about this as I embark on handing my keys to a stranger. I agree it sounds like quite a wrench to do so.

Following on though I’ve been reading up on the application for planning permission for a holiday let. I want to have felixibilty to stay in the flat when I have a solid week or so working in London. The rest of the time I’ll be living in Oxford. I also suspect that the holiday deposit system and letting would protect my property more.

Does anyone have any experience of this process? I don’t really think AirBnB is how I would go but I was thinking of using a holiday let agent. Do Camden just say no or do they actually listen to each particular case? I work later some evenings so commuting every day to Oxford would just not be an option.

Thanks for any help anyone can give.
