Choosing your university student accommodation in Leeds can be overwhelming. There are lots of important decisions to make and budget constraints to consider, and often you need advice from other people. That advice can come in the form of parents, other students, and friends, however, finding a great student lettings agent in Leeds can be priceless. It can be the difference between a smooth student tenancy and a difficult one. So, it’s definitely better that you choose a good company who you can get on well with and trust.

But what makes one student lettings agent better than another? Well, here are the things that we think make the best student lettings agents…


Managing relationships well

Your Leeds student letting agent is the link between you and the landlord who owns your student property. They are there to help you find your flat or house, but also to manage the relationship between both parties once you move in. It is in the agent’s interests for those relationships to work as smoothly as possible to make life easier for everyone involved.

A good agent will be approachable, helpful, and friendly, so that you feel like you can call them whenever you have a question about the property or need some help or advice. Here at Beyond Lettings, our team are all of those things, and we offer plenty of support for our students.


Offering a wide variety of properties

Leeds is a big city, and therefore, there is so much choice when it comes to student accommodation. Every student is unique – with their own taste, preferences, requirements, and budget – therefore, a good student lettings agent will provide properties that cater for all of those different things.

Whether you are looking for a 1-bed luxury apartment in Hyde Park, or a large 6-bed student house in Headingley, Beyond Lettings has a huge choice of student properties for you to choose from. We know all the best spots in Leeds and can advise which area might be best for you, depending on what you are looking for close-by.


Guiding you through the complete process

Your student letting agent should take you through the whole process of finding and confirming your new property, as well as looking after you while you are living in the accommodation.

The process starts with the viewings and discussions about the type of property that you want, who will be living there, and also the amount you want to pay. The best letting agents know their properties really well, so will be able to advise on what would work best for you.

A team member will then take you through the appropriate paperwork and make sure you understand everything that you are signing for. They will also explain what is expected of you as a tenant – for example, keeping the property tidy and damage free. Your agent will also be able to help you with the practicalities of moving in i.e., move in dates, collecting keys, what you will need to bring etc.

In terms of what’s expected, they will also ensure that the same applies for the landlord of your property, and that maintenance and repairs are carried out swiftly and in line with the commitments in the tenancy agreement.


Understanding students’ needs

Student life can be really fun, but there also might be times when you feel things are a bit of a struggle. From financial worries to anxieties about relationships, workload, or family, there will be times when you need some extra help and support, and the important thing to know is there is so much support for students in Leeds.

When it comes to student home support, our friendly team are always here to help. We also publish weekly blog articles covering a range of topics that are really handy for students in Leeds and the surrounding areas.


Being contactable when needed

During your student tenancy, one of the most important roles of the letting agent is to be available when you need them the most. Some landlords or agents are a total nightmare to get hold of, and that’s the last thing you need when it’s the middle of winter and your boiler is broken!
