If you own a student property, whether it's a one bed or ten bedroom property, please contact us
with details. If it is an HMO then we will need copies of the appropriate certificates before we can advertise your property.
- We will not be beaten on Landlord charges!
- We will display up to four pictures per property on our website and, if necessary, we can arrange to take the photos for you.
Top Tips to let your Student Property
We realise that letting your property while students are still living there may mean it won't be "show home tidy
" when prospective tenants are viewing. However we believe that the following tips will increase the chances of an early let.
- Ensure that the property is attractive on the outside. We all know that first impressions count and this is just as true for student properties - even more so when their parents (who usually will be the ones paying!) turn up.
- Visit the property and attend to any minor maintenance e.g. loose carpet edges, cracked or broken light switches
- Make sure that communal areas are clean and tidy
- Be aware that apparently minor things like this can put both your prospective tenants, and their parents, off a property so it's worth making the effort.
Broadband Internet Connection
- An increasing number of students are including broadband as a "must have", and won't consider a property without it
- If possible, arrange for wired broadband access (using standard network cabling to a single router) in every bedroom
- For smaller properties, to save on cabling issues, consider installing a wireless connection - this can now be done very easily, for less than £100 on top of the cost of installing broadband; virtually all modern laptops include WiFi as standard.
Keep your current tenants on your side
- Give them plenty of notice of a viewing
- Make sure they don't have any unresolved issues
- Remember that they can make or break a let - if they're unhappy, they're not likely to recommend the property and may do the opposite!
