Student Flats GlasgowMarch 29, 2017 3:59 pm
Glasgow is a big college and university city with the University of Glasgow, the Glasgow Caledonian University and the University of the West of Scotland within the city, to name just a few. This means that there is always a market for student flats in Glasgow and as a landlord looking to purchase a property, this is a great option to consider.
Glasgow is one of the friendliest cities in the UK for students to live in while studying and its many features such as opera, ballet and orchestras as well as museums, art galleries and historic buildings also add to its popularity. Students can often choose to live alone or with a friend or two in a shared property so flats of all sizes can easily find tenants.
If you plan to allow three or more students to live in the property, you need to apply for a special license from Glasgow city council for this, a multiple occupancy license. Organising the health and safety checks before the students move in is also important as if keeping up annual checks on gas, electricity and appliances.
An option to consider to assist with all of this is the use of a letting agent.
These offer services to help set up the tenancy including finding the right students for the property and arranging the deposit and tenancy agreement. People who don’t live in the city or work full time often use their services to run the tenancy once started to save them the work of doing it themselves.
