Buying the Property to Rent It out As UK Student Accommodation

By Tom Ashdown Subscribe to RSS | June 22nd 2012 | Views:

If you are going to buy a property to rent it out, you have to consider many aspects of renting. First of all you have to make the choice to what type of tenants you will let your property. If you wish to let it to students then you don’t need to worry much about the decoration and genre of the property. The prices of house rentals differ from area to area and city to city in UK. It is not consistent throughout the UK. Renting out student homes in London yields more income as compared to any other city of UK. The increase in rental prices is also because of the fact the buying a house is difficult to afford by everyone. Incapacity to buy one’s own home results in high demand for rental properties. Again, the rental properties are less as compared to its demand. So, rental prices are increasing progressively.

The numbers of students in country are increasing every year. Students from foreign countries also come to UK for study in large numbers. There is less space in UK student accommodations provided by the universities. Therefore, the students have no choice but to rent privately. Sometimes, students also prefer to live in privately rented student homes instead of living in university accommodation to enjoy a flexible life style. Whatever, the reason is, the more students are coming in and rental prices are increasing. This is, of course, welcoming the landlords to invest in the field of letting to students.

The property market is bit instable. You should invest after carefully taken all aspects in your mind. When you buy student homes to let, make sure it is in the area that is suitable rather perfect for the students. You should check the values of rent and prices of property in the area you want to buy the property. This will give you an idea about the income your property will yield. Also check the university office for having information about the student accommodation measures they are taking into their consideration. If there is large number of student enrolled with less accommodation in university your property will appeal to many student tenants.

Keep into mind the requirements and needs of the students they are looking for in the UK student accommodation. Mostly the students are with less finance. They are in search of a property for which they have to pay less rent. They don’t demand the property to be excellently decorated. If they have to compromise on the things by which they can save their money, they will go for that. If you offer your property with less rent your property will be chased after by many students. And in turn you don’t have to provide them with each and every amenity. Remember, security measures can’t be compromised. Make sure furniture is fire resistant, gas and electric appliances are checked regularly and safe for use.

Convenience of the student matters a lot. They always prefer to live in UK student accommodation that is near to their college making it possible for them to rush for an early morning class. They also prefer an area where they face no problems with the transportation. The property should be in an area that is adjacent to shops and entertainment areas. As most of the students don’t have their personal conveyance so an area which is in easy access to campus, shops and bars is preferred by them.

When it comes to presentation of your property for viewings by the student, you don’t have to spend lot on your property. A neat and clean accommodation with basic amenities will serve the purpose. If you decorate your property marvelously and lavishly the students might not attract to your property because now the rents will be high and they cant afford it.
