How does it work?
The University will rent the property from you and then re-let the property back to a group of students, who will have been checked by the University. Brunel Student Lettings takes over the day to day management of the property and will carry out regular inspections. Unless we have to notify you of any repairs you should have no further worries. As your rent payments are guaranteed you do not need to worry about residents defaulting on payments. The length of the lease will usually be for 51 weeks.
If you have a good quality, affordable property, preferably within walking distance of the University, which is suitable for groups of people, then this may be your preferred option.
