Student housing completes its £2.6 million Nottingham property acquisition plan

A Nottingham letting agent and property management company has completed a £2.6million property acquisition plan in the city.

Student Housing, which specialises in high-quality university accommodation, received the keys for a five-bedroom, £300,000 house in Lenton at the end of last week. The property is the eleventh to be acquired by Student Housing on behalf of investors.

The acquisition fund was raised in June last year when Student Housing invited potential investors from across the UK to Nottingham to celebrate the opening of its Ilkeston Road offices.

As well as the Lenton property, Harry Conti (26) director of Student Housing has overseen the purchase of a block of six studio apartments, a number of 5+ bedroom houses of multiple occupancy, two-bedroom apartments and studios.

"We opened our Nottingham office in May last year and have been really pleased with the way the business has developed since," says Harry. "We started Student Housing in Lincoln in 2015 and, today, we are the biggest specialist agency in the city. Looking back through our records and comparing like with like, our Nottingham office is doing twice as well as Lincoln was at just under a year old. Nottingham is a different market to Lincoln, and we're enjoying the challenge of establishing ourselves. Our offer of only working with landlords whose properties offer the highest standards of decor, fixtures and fittings, and being the only Nottingham agency to work on an all bills inclusive basis is proving very popular!"

As well as the properties mentioned previously, Harry and his team are close to completing the refurbishment of five apartments on Lenton Boulevard, which when finished, will be the most luxurious student accommodation in Nottingham.

Each apartment has benefitted from professional interior design and the highest possible standard of finish. The design, decor and features of each property is unique, featuring custom flooring, furniture, lighting and facilities. They all have en suite bathrooms and an array of touches that you'd expect to find only in the best hotels, such as cinema rooms, emperor sized LED TV beds, designer kitchens and furniture.

"No one else in Nottingham is offering accommodation like this, and we've already had considerable interest from students wanting to move in when they're ready, which should be April,"

adds Harry.

Harry and his business partner Marcus Askam Yates (29) started Student Housing in Lincoln in 2015. They left the University of Lincoln before the end of their degree courses to start the business after becoming frustrated with the low-quality accommodation that was on offer to students.

The business has grown quickly and now employs 15 people, who let and manage over 600 properties to more than 1,500 students.
