Letting to Students

Updated: 20 June 2017

HMO licencing and students both demand better quality property

 

Why should a student landlord choose Goadsby?

 

All markets evolve and student letting is no exception.

In recent years landlords have been required to meet HMO licencing conditions which are in themselves quite complex but these regulations have raised standards. At Goadsby we have established close links with local authority HMO teams and have adopted compliance of HMO regulations as a key working practice.

In addition with a growing student population Universities have invested heavily in new halls of residences and accordingly student accommodation is being offered at higher standards. Through our close contact with students and our awareness of competing property we are well placed to offer landlords our advice with regard to property presentation and HMO licencing conditions with particular reference to HMO planning status: C3 and C4 dwellings.

At Goadsby we maintain a high level of student letting enquiries and student letting landlords can be assured that we are well placed to let their property.
