The student market operates between the 1st July of each year for 12 months, although some Landlords will allow variations on this such as 10 month contracts, or moving in during September.
Students love house shares and tend to get into groups of 3,4,5 or 6 people to house hunt together. The student market in Leeds fluctuates during the year. The largest rush of student house hunting takes place during December and January where 1000's of students get together in groups formed on courses or from Halls or sports teams to find the best pick of the properties.
As the student properties for the start of the student academic year are released in December, the best houses are often snapped up early. A large majority of the houses with the biggest bedrooms and best locations are reserved in December and January. The prices are at their highest at this time of year due to the huge demand.
February, March and April remain fairly quiet compared to the winter student rush however there are still some good houses to be found and some fantastic offers up for grabs. May and June start to hot up again as the students start to finish their exams and courses and start to think about their property for next year. At this time there are fewer properties available in the most favourable Leeds student locations such as Hyde Park, Woodhouse and Headingley, but there certainly are some great bargains to be had.
July and August is a busy time for groups of young professionals searching for Leeds Accommodation as well as Students wanting Leeds house shares and students that have left it to the last minute.
There are many different areas and locations around Leeds, perfect for Students, here's a run-down;
By far the most popular student location for the hip and happening younger students going into their 1st, 2nd and 3rd years of Uni. The location is fantastic as its close by to the Universities as well as having a good range of student accommodation, some cool shops bars and cafes as well as being close to transport links such as buses along the Otley Road or trains from Burley park train station on Cardigan Road. There is a useful Sainsburys Local in the middle of Hyde Park on Brudenel Road in Hyde park, along with a range of coffee shops, key cutters, video shops etc. Hyde Park property is slightly more expensive than Leeds student houses in nearby areas, and the best property goes quickly so start looking in December and January for the best Hyde Park rental property. There are many letting agents in Hyde Park for students. We will also have a large selection of property to rent in Hyde Park, so check out our property listings on the Let Leeds Student Property Search.
A fantastic place for more mature Leeds students and Leeds Young professionals, a uber-cool place with a massive range of trendy bars, pubs, cafes and restaurants. More popular for students going into their 3rd or 4th year and Leeds Met students due to being a bit further away from the City Centre and close to Becketts Park campus. Headingley has a good range of student accommodation as well as a range of smart 1 and 2 bed apartments for smaller groups. Headingley is good for transport links to Leeds City Centre with buses running all day along the Otley Road, the nearest train station is Headingley Train station, which is further down towards Kirkstall and Burley Park train station on Cardigan Road. There's loads of great shops in Headingley in the Arcade. Headingley is slightly more expensive in terms of rental compared to Burley, Burley Park and Kirkstall, however the room sizes and location make this worthwhile. The best property goes quickly so start looking in December and January for the best Headingley property to rent. There are a number of student letting agents in Headingley.

By far the best value for money areas. Maybe a little out the way from Headingley and Hyde Park, but still within easy walking distance of the Universities and Leeds City Centre. Burley is well suited to young professionals, those searching for Leeds rooms and house shares and more mature students who want to live somewhere quieter. Burley really is great for transport links to Leeds City Centre and therefore great for groups of professionals. Burley Park is well situated between the tip of Headingley and Hyde Park so still has the ease of access and proximity to Headingley bars, but also with great priced student living accommodation! Burley park has its own train station, making trekking to Leeds city centre a doddle! Hyde Park and Headingley are less than a 5 minute walk away. There are not many student or professional letting agents located in Burley and Burley park, although the Headingley and Hyde Park letting agents do tend to serve these areas. Let Leeds always has a vast array of Leeds student accommodation to let in Burley Park and Burley park. You can check out our property listings on the Let Leeds Student Property Search.
Great for location and proximity to Leeds University. A popular location for students wanting great value for money and those wanting to live close to Leeds City Centre.

We take a standard security bond of £250 per student, which is kept in a government back deposit scheme called the DPS, you can read about the DPS at www.depositprotection.com.
As long as you don't maliciously break things in the property, and leave your student home nice and clean, you will certainly be getting your bond back!
If you can't be bothered to clean your property at the end of your Tenancy you're more than welcome to arrange a professional clean through us at Let Leeds, just call 0113 320 2000 to book your clean.

A HMO stands for a House in Multiple Occupation and relates to a property where there are 3 or more households in a property. So if you're living in a house with two other mates, you're living in a HMO.
A Licensable HMO is a little different, this is where there are 5 or more household staying at the property, as you can imagine a large proportion of HMO properties in Leeds are catered for students. In a licenced HMO, we are required to ensure the property is in a safe condition, well maintained and meets all the housing regulations such as fire safety.
In a licenced HMO of 5 or more occupants, you will expect to have:
All Leeds HMO properties managed by Let Leeds will conform to the above criteria. If you have any further questions about HMO's, your student property or someone else's please call us on 0113 320 2000.
You can normally find a great bargain on these sites and most of the time, private landlords will look after the house and the students living in the house well.
Let Leeds work with a number of good landlords who have a private portfolio of student accommodation to let, and who manage their properties on a full time basis. Large organisations such as www.unipol.co.uk also work mostly with Leeds private landlords.
However, there are a small number of rogue landlords out there so please do be careful when dealing with private landlords directly, if you have any concerns please don't hesitate to call us for a chat or some advice 0113 320 2000.
