It’s your move with student lets
Maybe you just want us to find the student tenants for your property. Or perhaps you’d like us to manage the whole let. In either case, we can help. We have years of experience in working with students, so we can minimise the likely pitfalls and help you maximise your yield. We can even advise you on the best properties to purchase if you’re taking the first steps into student lets.
Students – we’re on your side too!
If you’re looking to rent a property in the private sector, it's vital to be clued up on your rights just in case an unscrupulous landlord tries to take advantage. It may even be your first time living away from home, so you’ll have to learn how to budget and deal with property issues when things go wrong. And they will!
We would suggest that you save yourself a lot of time, hassle and worry by contacting Property Link immediately. We have a superb portfolio of student accommodation on our books. And we’ve helped thousands of students to find and enjoy warm, comfortable homes during their student years. We’ve even got a brilliant team of ‘fixers’ ready to leap into action, just in case something breaks, fails or disappears.
Tenancy application process explained
When completing your application form we require each tenant to submit a signed application form with photo ID.
For peace of mind for you and the landlord we will ask you to provide details of a suitable financial guarantor. Your guarantor will be the person who agrees to pay your rent if you encounter difficulties with payment. Yourself and guarantor will both undergo credit checking via Experian. To qualify as a guarantor you need to ensure your guarantor is a UK homeowner, ideally in full time employment or able to provide proof of income. If you need to amend your contract/ guarantor once the tenancy agreement has been signed a fee of £75.00 plus vat is payable for amendments.
If you are unable to provide a guarantor the landlord may consider accepting a double deposit to the value of 2 months rent.
Once you have been approved, to secure your property, we will request you pay your deposit via our online payment facility or debit/credit card, this will be equivalent to one months rent or if a double deposit is payable its 2 months rent.
You are able to view a sample of our tenancy agreement below.
The tenancy agreement will be sent to you via doucsign and will be sent back to us to witness on behalf of the landlord.
Joint Tenancy Agreement explained
Each tenant that signs a joint tenancy agreement is jointly responsible for adhering to the terms of the tenancy. Under a joint tenancy all the tenants have equal rights and are equally liable to cover any defaults in rent payment.
Don’t want to move, and wish to stay in your property
We look after and want all our good tenants to stay with us. After consulting with your landlord and assessing your rental history we will contact you approximately 3 months before your end of tenancy date to invite you to extend our tenancy before we advertise your property.
For students and due to the high demand for academic properties we will contact you normally around December/January to see if you would like to extend your tenancy for a further academic year.
