Investing in UK student property is an attractive option due to the potential for steady rental income and long-term capital appreciation. When choosing properties to offer clients, we at JP Knight and Partners Ltd (JPK) consider the following points :
Demand and Stability: The UK has a robust higher education system, attracting a large number of Domestic and International students. This consistent demand for student accommodation can provide stability and a reliable tenant base.
Rental Yields: Student properties in prime locations near universities often offer competitive rental yields. JPK carry out extensive research of the local rental market to ascertain realistic potential returns.
Market Research: JPK conduct thorough market research to identify areas with high demand for student accommodation. We look for universities with growing student populations, limited on-campus housing options, and strong rental demand in the surrounding area.
Property Management: We engage professional property management companies that specialise in student properties. Property management companies handle tenant management, property maintenance, and ensure compliance with relevant regulations.
We carefully choose properties that are in close proximity to universities, amenities, and public transportation. Students often prioritise convenience and access to campus facilities.
