MOVO Adds Abbey Lodge Student Village To Expanding Portfolio

Fast-growing residential lettings company Monkey vs Owl (MOVO) has been appointed to drive forward occupancy at Abbey Lodge – a new student village close to Derby city centre.

MOVO will be actively marketing the newly-renovated accommodation in Lonsdale Place off Uttoxeter New Road for short-term summer lets and then for the new academic year in September 2019.

Abbey Lodge Student Village is a community of high quality apartments with spacious shared facilities and individual bedrooms from just £80 a week inclusive of all bills, contents insurance and wifi.

There is indoor and outdoor social space, organised events and low-cost off street parking as well as an exclusive free bus to and from University of Derby campuses.

MOVO Sales Director James Lomas explained:

“Our local knowledge and contacts make us the ideal choice to market the high quality and affordable accommodation and facilities at Abbey Lodge Student Village.

“The central location makes it ideal for students based at the University of Derby campuses, Royal Derby Hospital and indeed Nottingham due to the fast and efficient bus and rail links between the cities.

“We are therefore confident that our involvement will have a positive impact on lettings during the important run up to the new academic year in September 2019 and beyond.”

MOVO was set up last year with a focus on taking an innovative approach to student residential lettings and has since broadened its portfolio to also market lettings for professional people in the city.

Mr Lomas continued:

“Through our app platform, we take the hassle and tedium out of renting and have also created a community for students, young professionals and landlords with some great events and exclusive offers for our customers from venues and business across the city.

“We then have a flexible and bespoke package for landlords to fit in with their individual requirements – whether that is purely marketing properties to a full service with tenancy agreements and refurbishment and repairs service."
