Locate Guernsey’s Richard Le Tocq outlines the option of renting on the open market in Guernsey.

“The team and I speak to individuals and business considering relocation to Guernsey. Some enquiries go from initial contact to relocation within days or weeks, however, many are slower burns and take longer to come to a conclusion.

This is perfectly understandable: Moving one’s life or business to a new place is a major decision which requires careful consideration. I, and others who have already relocated, can tell you why Guernsey is an excellent place to live and do business. It is almost always more persuasive, however, to experience Guernsey for yourself and allow the island’s charm and beauty to do the talking.

Many people who decide to relocate themselves and their family decide to live in rental accommodation in Guernsey’s easily accessible Open Market in order to get a taste of living on the island without the commitment associated with buying property.

This is an excellent way of ‘trying before you buy’ so to speak.”

Here are some examples of properties for rental on the Open Market at the moment:
