What makes Sussex Student Lettings different from other letting agents?
We are a Social Enterprise:
We're not profit-driven. As a social enterprise, all our profit after operating costs is spent on providing a range of advice & support services for students. This makes us different; however we believe it also makes us better, as we take a unique approach to lettings management that ensures we really do work harder for you the landlord.
Our on-campus location means we have unrivaled access to the students, as well as University staff. This allows us to advertise properties through exclusive means across campus; student and staff newspapers/ events/ housing talks and fairs. The Union's professional infrastructure includes a marketing department.
Our convenient location also makes the lettings process easier, from viewings through to managing the tenancies (collecting rent payments/ dealing with maintenance issues) as students can easily pop in to see us between lectures.
Trusted by students (and free!):
Being part of the Students' Union means that the students already have an on-going relationship with us through using the range of services the Union provides, which creates an element of trust and familiarity that they are unlikely to have with other agencies.
We also don't charge any administration fees to the students, making us their financial preference also!
Primary Purpose is a GREAT SERVICE:
The agency's primary purpose is to provide good accommodation and a great service to students, and in doing so ensure that both students and landlords receive the best customer service possible from our agency
We are members of the National Approved Lettings Scheme (www.nalscheme.co.uk),the redress scheme The Property Ombudsman (www.tpos.co.uk) and also NALS Client Money Protection Scheme (CMP).
