A call from Edinburgh’s leading lettings company about how renting property to students can help landlords propser despite the credit crunch has been published by the Independent on Sunday.
The Sunday broadsheet paper used the story from Braemore Property Management as the basis for an article explaining how students are a prime market for would-be landlords across the UK.
Colette Murphy, director at Braemore, argued that as students are willing to pay good money for a flat and have UK-based guarantors, they are among the best tenants you can find. She added that although students had a bad reputation, many landlords found that groups of undergraduates were great tenants – and the traditional lack of student accommodation meant that there was always a high demand for good flats during the university term.
