Outsourcing the management of your student property offers a range of fantastic benefits - both personally and professionally. Not only will you save the time and stress of dealing with student tenants or emergencies, you’ll also have access to professional maintenance teams, contractors and legal teams at a much lower price than approaching them alone.
With our property management service, you’ll have complete peace of mind. You’ll avoid all of the difficult parts of being a HMO landlord whilst we do the hard work:
Less stress - By hiring a specialist, you won’t have to worry about late-night emergencies, chasing down rent, damages, paperwork, sourcing contractors or any other tedious and time consuming tasks.
Freedom - We’ll completely manage your student property, so you don’t have to worry about being available for your tenants. Our dedicated customer support team will be the first point of contact for your tenants.
Free time - You will spend less time working on the nitty-gritty of being a HMO landlord as we’ll do everything on your behalf, all you need to do is sign the tenancy agreement. Not to mention you’ll have more spare time to spend with your family and friends.
Below, we’ve outlined all of the benefits you can receive by using StudentTenant.com’s property management service

24/7 Maintenance Cover with British Gas - Property maintenance cover available 24 hours a day. This includes repairs and replacement of parts for any issues relating to gas, electricity, plumbing and drains, and at no extra cost.

Dedicated customer support - Our dedicated team will be the first point of contact for your tenants should they have any queries or issues. Likewise, we are here to support you as a landlord and take the hassle out of managing a property yourself.
Lower maintenance costs
By using a property management service, you’ll have access to a team of trusted contractors who will keep your property in great working order at all times.
If you have any issues at your property, you or your tenants can log an issue on our online platform and we’ll gather quotes on your behalf. We’ll then be in contact, let you know the prices from our contractors and action the work.
Lower prices - As the maintenance work for all of our managed properties is outsourced to a team of local contractors, we have access to discounts and much cheaper pricing compared to someone approaching them directly.
Not only that, but with StudentTenant.com’s property management service, you’ll benefit from 24/7 British Gas Maintenance cover at no extra cost. That means if you have an issue with your gas, plumbing, electricity or drains and it requires repairs or replacement parts, you won’t have to pay anything extra!
Trusted contractors - All of the contractors we’ll use to fix minor issues at your property (outside of what's covered by British Gas Maintenance cover) have worked on our other managed properties in your area. Therefore, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that we only use reputable contractors at your student property.
We’re up-to-date on all things legal when it comes to your property.
In recent years, the UK Government has made many changes which affect private HMO landlords - the Tenant Fees Act 2019, Mortgage Interest Tax Relief, Section 21 Evictions, Energy Efficiency, Right to Rent… the list goes on.
We’re armed with the knowledge on how to deal with the latest and upcoming changes which will affect you as a HMO landlord, so you can leave all your compliance worries to us and rest assured we will be following the necessary laws.
Landlords can be fined up to £30K for not providing a compliant and safe home. Your tenant can submit an issue to your local authority which can escalate to significant fines if not fixed. However, as a professional property management company, we’ll protect you and your property and ensure that it is legally compliant with your local council.
Ensures Your Rent is Paid on Time
Sometimes it’s inevitable that you may have the odd difficult tenant who doesn’t pay their rent on time. However, having your property managed means the pressure is taken off and we’ll have the power and knowledge to enforce contractual agreements and follow the appropriate steps to ensure you are fully covered.
Handling the collection of rent and late fees is an extremely important aspect of property management. To ensure consistency and reliable cash flow, rent must be collected on time every month, and we know that is important to our landlords.
