After a very busy summer period at the end of July, seeing all the students leaving due to the end of the academic year and checking all of the properties out, plus preparing the properties for the new students to arrive at the beginning of September and making sure they all settle in through September, we have now entered the period of preparing for the new letting season which begins in November for the academic year 2019/20.
We have had more enquiries from student landlords in the past two months than ever before, asking us to help them find students and to manage their properties on their behalf. If there is anybody else that is looking to rent their student properties out, who have not yet contacted us, we would love to hear from you. We’d appreciate it if you could do this as a matter of urgency though, due to the fact that we are only three weeks away from the letting season.
This is in addition to our normal professional lets that we deal with on a month to month basis. I can also report that the last quarter has been the busiest during this year; this is excluding the student properties. However, if you have any other properties that you are considering letting, we would be happy to hear from you too.
Finally, if anyone is confused with the new regulations that were brought in on the 1st October 2018, relating to HMO’s, please contact us. We’ll be happy to advise you on this important matter.
