If you're a parent looking for student accommodation for your offspring, you might have the TV sitcoms The Young Ones and Fresh Meat in the back of your mind.
Student digs and tales of undergraduates have long been great fodder for scriptwriters but such shows don't always paint a positive picture of student accommodation.
While halls of residence can be limited in supply, the private rental sector is increasingly filling the gap in the student accommodation market.
Starting your search with a respected lettings agency is a great way to ensure your studious son or daughter has a safe, professionally-managed property in which to live.
“We are often approached by concerned parents, particularly those living abroad, who want to secure a safe property close to their child’s place of education. We understand any fears, and work to allay these by vetting landlords just as thoroughly as we do tenants and ensuring each property we manage is legally compliant. For ultimate peace-of-mind we do recommend a property from our fully managed portfolio, where we take care of planned and emergency maintenance, as well as conducting regular property inspections.”
