Landlord Advice

1 Thinking about buying a property to let to students?

Before you commit to buying a property with the intention of letting it to groups of students you need to ensure that the property has the correct permissions in order to do this. The agent selling the property will have this information but for further details please visit Bournemouth Council website.

The above does not apply if you want to let your property to University staff or a student with a family. LettingsBU can talk to you about this option so please call us to discuss.

2 Have a property to let?

You have confirmed that you have a property with the correct permissions to let to students OR you want to let it out to BU staff or families. You also need to ensure that your property meets all of the current statutory standards as defined by the local authority, details of which can be found here. The LettingsBU team can also advise further on this.

Your next step is to now contact LettingsBU who will be happy to talk you through our products so you can decide which might suit your needs best.

3 Arrange a viewing

Once you have had a chat with one of our LettingsBU team and understand how we can help we will then arrange a convenient date and time for us to meet and have a look around your property.

During this viewing we will conduct free no-obligation property inspection. We will also photograph and take details about your property so should you wish to use our services then we have everything we need to get your property advertised immediately. We will also talk further about what you expect from us as your agent so that we can better tailor the right product for you.

4 Register with LettingsBU

You’ve met us and like/trust our products; we’ve seen and loved your property. It is now time for LettingsBU to register you and get your property advertised to our 17,000 students. To make this as easy as possible for you, we have a simple registration process and we let your property on a no-let no-fee basis. Time to sit back and let us do the work for you.

5 Advertising your property

You might hear from other agents that the peak period for student lettings is December to February. However, LettingsBU is in a unique position, having direct access to over 17,000 students, we will continue to let properties throughout the year.

6 Completing the Let

LettingsBU will notify you once we have found a suitable group of students for your property. Depending on which of our products you have registered with we will then contact you with all of the relevant paper-work (electronic sign-ups also available) to complete the Let. It’s that easy!

7 During the letting period

Depending on which of our products you choose, your involvement with the day to day management of the property will vary. However, regardless, our experienced team of Housing Officers are always on hand to offer you any advice or guidance you might need. For further information please Contact Us
