As students start heading back to Uni after the summer holidays, thousands of landlords around the nation will be getting set to welcome these youngsters into their properties and for those less experienced at renting out their property to students – there will no doubt be a few nerves amongst them.
The perception of students as tenants is not always positive with many landlords worried that this will leave their property in ruins, with messy students running amok and partying every night with little regard for their property.
Student renters do pose other issues for landlords, such as the fact their leases are often shorter term and their properties tend to remain empty over holiday periods.
So how can you find the best student tenants? What ground rules need to be put in place from the start? How can you make sure your property is in good shape when they leave? And how do you make sure you have the right insurance in place?
For the answers to these questions and any more you may have, log on to our live and interactive Web TV show where Simon Thompson from Accommodation for Students will give you all the info you need and answer all your questions. The show will also feature advice from James Davis, CEO of Upad offering advice on how to choose the right tenant. As well as this, we will be joined by Paul Shamplina from Landlord Action to discuss how to deal with nightmare tenants across the board and Eddie Hooker from Total Landlord Insurance.
