To help you get the most from our service, we’ve produced this short guide on how to use Roomlets.Rentals.
Yes! We are an online advertising, search, messaging and matching service for people offering or seeking rooms for rent. We make it easy for you to find and contact others to ask questions and arrange viewings. We are not an agency, so we don’t get involved in rental transactions and we don’t take any commission or ongoing fees.
Start by placing your own ‘Room Offered‘ ad on Roomlets.Rentals. We get new users searching for rooms every day, and we make it easy for them to search and find your listing. For the best results, you should also be proactive in checking the ‘room-wanted’ ads in your area using our Search facility. If you wish, we can do automatic ad-matching to let you know by email as soon as we find someone looking for a room like yours.
Start by placing your Room-Wanted ad on Roomlets.Rentals so that people offering rooms can find and contact you. Then Search and browse the room-offered ads for your area, and send a free message to introduce yourself. We can also include you in automatic ad-matching to let you know by email as soon as we find a room matching your ad.
You may place a FREE ad and get email alerts when someone is interested. To reply to enquiries, or share phone numbers, you or the other person must upgrade. Our most popular plans work out at about 82p per day (or 21p per day if you are seeking a room). Read How Much Does It Cost?
Yes! To rent out a room and still enjoy privacy at the weekends, or find a room just for the working week, select this option. We provide built-in Mon-Fri search filters. Find out more: Monday to Friday Room Lets.
Yes! For landlords and agents advertising rooms in more than one property, we offer Professional plans. Read How Much Does It Cost?
There is no ‘early bird’ waiting period, so you can contact any advertiser as soon as they publish their ad. To send a free message, click the ‘Send Message’ tab on the ad. Make sure you include enough information to get the other person interested. If the ad includes a phone number, click the ‘Phone Advertiser’ tab.
All received messages are stored in your Roomlets mailbox. We can also forward a copy immediately to your email address if you wish. To reply, go to your Roomlets mailbox. If the other person has upgraded, you can reply for free, otherwise you will need to upgrade.
If the other person hasn’t upgraded, you may need to upgrade your account so that they can reply. The other person may not be checking their messages frequently, or they may have decided for whatever reason not to respond. We encourage users to remove ads as soon as they are filled, and we send you an automatic response if this happens whilst you are waiting for a reply.
When you place an ad with Roomlets.Rentals, we check regularly for ads on our site matching your search. We make the results available in your account for the next time you sign-in. Optionally, we can send you free email alerts to let you know about the latest matches.
To be fair to other users, you must remove your ad as soon as it is filled. You can either delete the ad or save it in your account ready for use another time. Some of our emails include a link for you to do this, otherwise you can deactivate your ad from your ‘My Ads’ page.
The vast majority of people online are honest, but some fraudsters rely on the internet to commit crime. We take the risk of rental scams seriously. We review every new ad before publication and we look for suspicious patterns of activity. No system can be 100% safe. We advise users to be vigilant, use common sense and to report anything suspicious. Read Rental Scams – How to Avoid Them.
You can select the type of emails we send you by visiting your account page, or by clicking the ‘Contact Preferences’ link at the footer of any email we send you.
