It’s that time of year when we are inundated with all those “back to school” offers on the TV and in newspapers and magazines! so finding out that the average student weekly rent has risen to over £65 per week might be a surprise to some.
A recent article on LandlordZONE highlights the increases in rent for student properties which are well above inflation.
Apparently it is all due to the fact that property owners in the buy-to-let market are finding mortgages much more expensive and consequently these costs are being passed on to the students.
As a landlord, if it is costing you more to buy the property you should also be making sure that your tenants look after it. It is well worth investing in a quality video inventory to ensure that your assets are protected.
