It’s nearly the 1st of July, and the end of a long hard six months since we started marketing our student properties.
Here at City Rental Services on Gloucester Road we try to provide a good choice of properties for the students from both the University of Bristol and University of the West of England.
Our choice of properties ranges from two beds to twelve beds.
During the first six months of the year, groups of students – usually first years preparing for their second year of studies – call into our office at 58 Gloucester Road BS7 to check through our books for a bargain a house offered at a very reasonable price to help with the problems of balancing a student budget, or maybe they push the boat out and for a more expensive house with better facilities.
The rents range from £250 to over £400: of course, the cheaper ones will be far less well appointed, in more outlying areas, or may present a few more challenges in terms of wear and tear or maintenance.
Although City Rental Service offers a letting only service as an introduction to the owner landlords, we do our very best to help during the year with any issues that can arise between Landlord and Tenant – we act as an information centre, a helpdesk.
Now the tenancies are concluding for many of last year’s customers, there are issues relating to deposit refunds, house cleanliness, rubbish removal even disagreements between Landlord and Tenant or Tenant and Landlord.
To both parties, has the deal been fair and reasonable, did you do your bit?
Let’s get the houses empty, clean and tidy and ready for the new groups. Let’s not fall out over minor issues, let’s avoid tenancy deposit issues, where rents are paid in full and the house left in a reasonable condition, and Landlords let’s get those deposits refunded quickly and spend the time looking forward.
New groups are waiting for their keys on the 1st July 2014 keen to move into their new BS7 student properties, to get settled in, and then off to enjoy the Summer holidays.
Don’t forget to get insurance – there are lots of good companies ready to offer student insurance. We came across www.studentcover4you.co.uk this week, with no locks on individual bedroom doors required. Let’s get moving!
