Here at the Students’ Union, we have identified that students must look for accommodation from sometime around Christmas and into the second term.
There is a bad perception that every student must run around and grab a house as soon as possible without really knowing anything about landlords or letting agencies or even visiting properties!
While we would encourage students to hold off a little and wait to make sure they’re happy with the people they’ve chosen to live with, we have decided to introduce Rate Your Landlord.
This scheme will ask for those living in off campus properties to rate their landlord/letting agency/accommodation based on a variety of factors.
The results will then be analysed by the Students’ Union who will award the landlords who score highest.
As there are a number of categories, we feel the results will help inform students on who they wish to rent from the following year.
It gives students, particularly first years, the opportunity to identify which attributes matter most to them, and pick the landlord or agency appropriately.
What we do need from all those living in off campus is to take part in this survey so we can award our local landlords for their excellence in key areas.
The survey is COMPLETELY ANONYMOUS and so we would ask you to be as truthful as possible.
There will be an awards night in early April where we will be releasing the results to landlords, the local media, and most importantly to you the students.
So make sure to click here NOW and take 2-3 minutes letting us know how your landlord or letting agency has performed during your time in the property.
