Let Students Property Management & Lettings

As a student property management and lettings agency we offer a variety of accommodation for students and academics of Lancaster University and The University of Cumbria in and around Lancaster. We specialise in student accommodation and have tailored our lettings and management packages for the popular and competitive Lancaster market, while continually adapting to the changing needs of tenants and landlords. The variety of adaptable property management services that we offer are suitable for landlords of both buy to let houses and purpose built rental accommodation. The landlords whose properties we manage are varied and consist of individual local property owners through to professional international clients.

The accommodation that we manage is chiefly made up of shared student houses in popular student areas of Lancaster, although we have increased our range of properties to include purpose built accommodation and flats. As tenant numbers have increased so has the demand for more variety of accommodation, with many postgraduates and lecturers requesting more self contained properties.

We have found there to be a high consistent demand for quality student properties in Lancaster and we are always interested in taking on more, as we generally let the properties we manage at least six months before the following academic year eliminating any void periods.

We have been marketing student houses in Lancaster since 1994 and over this time we have continually developed our properties to suit the changing needs of tenants. By 2001 we were managing properties in Lancaster for several landlords and had developed relationships with a network of suppliers and trades people to help us deal quickly and efficiently with virtually any situation.

With the internet increasing the pace of the market we had found that by 2006 the more traditional forms of advertising were not able to keep up. This is why you will rarely see boards outside our houses or adverts in the local paper. Additionally we do not pay staff commission or maintain large city centre offices. Instead we organise a network of companies and contractors with the shared goal being the upkeep and smooth running of the properties we manage.

Lancaster Student Accommodation

The range of accommodation that we offer is tailored for students both in its location and in the provision of inclusive utilities, services, furniture and appliances. There is usually no deposit to pay, the rent is competitive and we maintain a high standard of accommodation with our own maintenance team together with regular property checks. Additional cleaning services are available and we are contactable 24 hours of the day should a problem arise.

Accommodation is available throughout popular student areas of Lancaster including Primrose, Moorlands, Bowerham, Greaves and the city centre. All properties are checked for safety and are licensed and accredited by Lancaster City Council where appropriate.

The features and availability of each property can be found in the accommodation section of this site.

Letting Student Accommodation

Good local knowledge and experience combined with a reliable and professional service have all contributed to our success in letting houses to students. Joining us puts your house on this and other websites, meaning your property is let quickly and you have our support and advice. We have never been left with an unrented property and unlike many other agencies we do not charge any set up fees and our specialised service and pricing should leave you with more of the profit when averaged over a full year on a like for like basis.

We advertise property on this and other websites and we actively search for tenants using marketing networks and other media, meaning that if a tenant wishes to leave part way through a contract we can quickly find a replacement.

If you are thinking of letting your property to students then more information can be found in the agency section of the website.

Managing and Maintaining Student Properties

The property management services that we offer benefit both landlord and tenant alike while helping you get the most for your property by providing you with a rental income that in many cases can be more than you would receive from letting yourselves or through other agents. It also leaves you with the time to pursue your own interests. Maintaining the properties that we manage is very important and we have found that intelligent tenant selection, good management and a well presented property can all help keep a property in its best let-able state.

We offer a range of lettings and management services which benefit both landlord and tenant alike, and with a network of contractors and trades people available, we are able to resolve virtually any problem quickly and efficiently.

Our reputation has been built on providing a superior standard of student home and we have implemented a programme of continuous improvement in the quality of our student accommodation. To aid us in this we regularly seek the views of our current student tenants for ways in which we can improve the houses they live in, while we perform regular checks to ensure a high standard is maintained. As a result we have introduced large LED TVs into most of our properties.

More information on the maintenance and management services we offer can be seen in the agency section of the website.
