Guidance on Letting Property to Students
This Guidance on Letting Property to Students looks at some of the main concerns facing student landlords in England.
This guidance applies to England only. If the property is in Wales, occupation contracts replace many existing tenancies and different rules apply to these contracts under the Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016. See Renting Homes Wales for further information.
This Guidance looks at HMO (houses in multiple occupation) legislation, the practicalities of letting to joint tenants, how to deal with a change of tenants and obtaining effective guarantees from parents.
The Guidance now includes reference to the Landlord’s fire safety obligations introduced on 23 January 2023 through the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022.
