Student tenancy market remaining strong

Student tenancy market remaining strong

There had been fears that this year would see a reduction in the student property market as £9,000 tuition fees would cause fewer to head to estate agents to look for homes.

However, a new study from Knight Knox International has found that this is not the case.

The investment firm said that universities had taken this into account and lowered entry conditions to help more people have access and keep oversubscriptions steady.

It said that so long as the quality of homes remains high, there will still be a high number of students ready to move in.

Martin Copeland, sales director at Knight Knox International, said: "The demand for high quality, private student property has not abated. Today's students are definitely more commercially aware than ever before and expect a higher quality of accommodation for their money."

Many university freshers weeks have been taking place over the last few weeks, meaning more landlords are now taking advantage of the benefits of renting to students.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801455409-ADNFCR
