GetDigs.co.uk is a web based service that links Homeowners, who have a spare bedroom in their home to rent, with potential Lodgers who wish to rent a room for the working week. Generally, the room is let for part of the week i.e. Monday to Friday.
More and more people have to commute long distances to work each day. Early rises and coming home late is not nice and can be quiet stressful, not to mention costly. Renting a room for part of the week is a great system. You get to work hassle free, you save on transport costs and your stress levels will be considerably lessened. The added bonus is that you are no longer too tired to enjoy your friends and family over the weekend.
GetDigs.co.uk has two type of users, Lodgers and Homeowners. We connect Lodgers looking for a room to rent during the week, with Homeowners who have a room available for weekday rental.
Lodgers - All visitors to the GetDigs.co.uk website have limited Guest access to our room listings. However, only registered users have full Member access to listings and registration is free. This allows the potential lodger to view all rooms available to rent, with full details provided by Homeowner, and to make contact with a Homeowner if interested in a particular room.
In terms of the weekly cost for the rental of the room and the terms and conditions, this is up to the Homeowner and the potential lodger to agree on.
Lodgers - Registration is is FREE! Registered members will have full Member access to our room listings, however, unregistered can also avail of limited Guest access to room listings.
Homeowners - currently Homeowners can register for just £5 to have their advert on our site for a 3 month period.
The short answer is no! GetDigs.co.uk specializes in Fractional Renting. Fractional or weekday renting describes those individuals who rent on a part-time basis, typically renting a room in someone’s home for the working week. So it is what suits you! It may be Monday to Friday, Sunday to Thursday, only 2 days a week or even 7 days a week. It's what suits your situation.
Limited Guest access allows the user to browse room listings showing pictures of rooms, general location of the property and the associated facilities of the property. However it does not allow the user to contact the property owner. To do this you must register as a Lodger (which is free).
Full Member access to GetDigs.co.uk allows Lodger Members to get more details about available rooms and if interested in a listing, Members can contact the Homeowner using a web-based electronic form.
Absolutely not. Any personal information will not be passed on to third party companies or individuals. Information that Homeowners provide regarding the room they wish to rent will be stored on the GetDigs.co.uk database and room listings can be viewed with limited listing details by Guests, or with full listing details GetDigs.co.uk Members. However the Homeowner has complete control over who views personal information such as name, address and telephone number.
