Student Property in Brighton
Brighton has two universities, and consequently there are over 30,000 students studying in the city, many of which live in student accommodation. There is a huge market for student houses in Brighton & Hove. This guide will help you find a Brighton student property that meets your needs, either as a landlord or as a tenant.
As a student in Brighton (unless you study at Grand Parade) you have to make a decision fairly early on as to whether you want to be renting a student property near the University or near the centre of Brighton. Many students prefer to leave within convenient distance of their university which makes the Moulescoomb, Coldean, Hollingdean and Bevendean areas of the city very popular for student houses. As a landlord, these houses can be cheaper to buy and therefore rent out as student accommodation. For students searching for student houses, there are lots in this area of the city which keeps the rent prices very competitive. This should be a huge consideration as a lot of students rely solely on their student loans for income. The London Road area is very popular for students from both Universities. It offers student accommodation in a very good proximity to Brighton city centre but it has good railway links to the Moulescoomb and Falmer campus’.
Searching For Student Houses
Your University will be able to help you find student accommodation. In Brighton, the lists for student houses are released in March. Consequently there is normally a rush through March and April as lots of people search for Brighton student property for the following year. If you don’t find suitable student accommodation in this time, don’t panic as there are more houses released throughout the summer. When looking around student accommodation, ask lots of question and pay attention to the condition of the house. Look for any mould or damp, how large are the bedrooms and are they all a roughly even size? Make sure you are completely happy with the property, the landlord and the rental payments before you sign any contract.
Landlords with Student Accommodation
Make sure that the student property is kept in a good condition. Renting to students is no different legally to renting to anybody else. It is your legal obligation to maintain the property, the heating and water systems and any other major parts of the property. The tenants are responsible to maintain the cleanliness of the property. All housing deposits have to be placed in the deposit protection scheme by law.
