Guide to renting your flat to students

With so many world-class universities in London appealing to thousands of students each year, it provides many rental opportunities for savvy landlords across London. Our lettings and management team will be on hand to assist you during this process to ensure that letting your property through CBRE Residential is a straightfoward task. 

Renting to students

We don’t just make renting or buying a student property easy for students, we also want to help both current and prospective landlords and property investors so that letting to students in London isn’t a complicated, stressful process for you either.

London has a wealth of world-class Universities to offer students, attracting interest from all over the UK and further afield. The CBRE Residential student lettings and management team are able to offer assistance that will help you to buy a property to let to students looking to move into the area with help and advice available on everything from floor plans to online advertising and even tenancy negotiations.

Once you’ve decided on your budget and location we can arrange for a professional photographer to come out and take pictures of your property and to create a floor plan which can then be listed online amongst our other student rentals to help you reach out to your target audience both here in the UK and abroad.

If you’re pushed for time or if you’re buying from abroad we can even arrange for one of our student letting agents to arrange and conduct viewings for you, providing feedback from potential tenants and negotiating with them to help to find the right deal for all parties.

Silver - Property Management 201-500 - "Lettings Agency of the Year"

CBRE Residential shows time and again why it is an award winning property management provider and the panel was pleased to see that this year is no exception. The team takes a project management approach to every aspect of the business and their grounded attitude reassures clients that they are receiving the best service. There are many examples of their proactive attitude being applied, for example during a phased block management refurbishment where over 90% of the tenants were rehomed from CBRE’s own stock. The renovations have meant that rental yield has increased whilst void periods have reduced so the landlord’s ROI has grown hugely, and this is all on the back of the CBRE property management team applying their expert knowledge. The three offices are strategically located to ensure a member of the CBRE team can be onsite in minutes if required. This requirement for prompt attendance is also applied to contractors who are always recruited and retained on the standard of their work, but also on their ability to attend sites quickly. This is a fantastic agency.
