Houses to rent in Nottinghamshire fit the bill

September is always a slightly wistful month as many families wave their children off to university for the first time, or back to campus for the second or third year. As a parent, you may even have been involved in the search for houses to rent in Nottinghamshire or Northampton, especially if your children are moving from halls to a more independent way of living. While the usual anxieties about eating properly and concentrating on studies will be at the forefront of many parents' minds, there is an opportunity not to be overlooked. As far as investing in property goes, student accommodation has been outperforming other options for some time. Houses to rent in Northampton, Nottinghamshire and Newark are always in demand due to the three universities in close proximity: the University of Nottingham, Nottingham Trent University and the University of Northampton. Here at Winkworth we are ready to help first-time student landlords and investors looking to add a different element to their property portfolio. There has been a shift in attitude among investors who once shunned university tenants. Student let rental returns have always been attractive but the running costs and legalities are sometimes more involved. However, new research* indicates that 69% of landlords feel it is better to let to students than non students. Reasons cited include an annual supply of tenants; a better yield and a safety net provided by a parent or guarantor. With support from a professional letting agent, letting to students or even investing in a HMO - a house of multiple occupation (also known as a house share) - can be a straightforward and rewarding investment option. Houses to rent in Newark and throughout Nottinghamshire and Northampton bought with students in mind are expertly managed by Winkworth. Minimising risk is our priority, so we carry out extensive checks on student tenants and seek guarantors where appropriate. We also plan tenancies very carefully to avoid void period at the end of the academic year. Our full management service ensure every student let is run within the law, is inspected on a regular basis and yields the best returns possible. *Research by utilities and service provider for students, Glide, and Accommodation for Students
