Liverpool student house share going quick! Have you sorted out yours?

liverpool student house share

With so many students looking for a Liverpool student house share, make sure you don’t leave it too long before starting your search.

We’re already in the final semester of the year and our Liverpool student houses are filling up fast for next year! But don’t panic. We still have plenty of decent properties for you to choose from but you need to get looking NOW!

Don’t be left disappointed and panicked into accepting a house you’re not happy with because the end of term is approaching and you need to find somewhere before heading home for the summer. Check out the selection of properties available from Mistoria Estate Agents. We can help you find a great Liverpool student house share.

If you want to choose your housemates, then get together with a group of friends and look for a house together. The advantage of this is that aside from sharing with people you know, you can choose a house that everyone likes and with rooms that everyone will be happy with. If it’s just you or you and just one friends, we can also help fit you into a suitable larger Liverpool student house share with other Liverpool students. You’ll still have your own private room that is just yours, and you’ll share the rest of the house and facilities with the other tenants. We do have a very limited number of properties with ensuite bathrooms so please ask us about these when your enquire.

What to look for in a student house share

One of the most important aspects of choosing a student house is location. When you’re looking for a Liverpool student house share you want to be in an area that is convenient for university but also has easy access to shops, transport, nightlife and entertainment. Many of our properties are in prime student locations, meaning everything you need is in close proximity. Our website also allows you to search for properties using a map search so you can be sure the houses you’re looking at are in exactly the location you want.

If there are four or more of you looking for a Liverpool student house share, go for a property that has two bathrooms. This avoids the common disputes over showers and the amount of time spent in the bathroom!

Don’t be influenced by superficial “extras” like a massive TV, iPod docking stations or inbuilt sound systems. They’ll cost you so much more in rent and whilst they sound great, everyone just watches Netflix on their laptop and listen to mucis on the phone anyway. A flashy TV is far less important than a good location,  nice rooms and reliable facilities.

Facts and figures of a Liverpool student house share

When you’re looking for a Liverpool student house share, it isn’t just about finding a house that you like. There are a number of financial issues to consider as well. Make sure you read the tenancy agreement thoroughly and know what you’re signing up to. Plus you’ll each need a guarantor, so get your parents to read through the tenancy agreement. Are bills included? They are with Mistoria Estate Agents. Remember that if you’re all students, the house will be exempt from council tax. You’ll probably have to pay part rent during the summer vacation if you want to retain the property next year. Also find out what the landlord’s policy is if one housemate wants to move out during the tenancy. It’s almost certainly the first time you’ve entered into an agreement of this kind, so be sure you understand the legal side of being a tenant.

If you’re a Liverppol student and still haven’t sorted your accommodation out for next year, browse the student properties at Mistoria Estate Agents before they’re snapped up! There’s only a few months left of the academic year. Visit www.mistoriaestateagents.co.uk or call 0800 500 3015. Or you can pop into our Liverpool letting office on Picton Road and chat to our friendly staff.

Tenant duties in a Mistoria Liverpool or Salford student house

Salford student house

There’s lots going on throughout the academic year, and we understand that studies, sports and socials sometimes take priority to your responsibility in your student house. So, we thought it worth reminding you of your duties as a Mistoria tenant.

When you first moved in, you and your housemates will have been told how we expect you to behave and look after your property whilst you’re living there, but here’s a reminder of your the simple dos and don’ts…

  1. Keep the property clean and tidy at all times – common sense, surely you do this at home, so why not in your term-time house.
  2. No food to be left/eaten in bedrooms – we know you do this, but be smart and don’t leave evidence of it.
  3. No Blu-Tac on walls – it causes grease marks.
  4. Rubbish to be removed, do not pile up bags in the yard – again, common sense, who wants to live in a rubbish tip?
  5. Keep all rooms vented – open windows a little whilst you’re at home, use extractor fans in bathroom when showering and the kitchen when cook, or open the windows and back door.
  6. Tenants are shown how to top up boiler, clean out hoover and clean out filters in washing machine – stuff you may not have known before to a little maintenance on your part will ensure these essential; household items stay in a good state or repair and effective working order.
  7. Tenants to be shown what the likely cause of black mould is and shown how to avoid black mould and condensation in the property by using the silent fans as well as opening the windows and doors frequently – as in point 5, plus don’t put wet clothes directly on radiators. Also see our dedicated condensation page.
  8. Smoking is NOT allowed in properties, especially Cannabis – make your student house a nice environment for everyone and smoke outside, away from open windows and doors.
  9. Drug taking is Forbidden. Any form of recreation drugs are Forbidden – it’s illegal. End of.
  10. Baby wipes/wetwipes and kitchen roll must be disposed of in a bin and NOT flushed down the toilet – these wipes do not break down like toilet tissues and can cause blockages.
  11. Shower plugs to be kept clean as they will clog with hair – a quick wipe with some toilet roll after each shower should do the trick.
  12. Use boiler timers or set rooms stats – this help keep the house pleasant, stops mould and prevents pipes from freezing in cold weather.
  13. INTERNET – Downloading/streaming films will reduces speed and restrict other household users.
  14. Use the Freshdesk online ticketing service on the Mistoria Estate Agents website to report maintenance issues – texts and emails won’t be responded to.
  15. Keep gardens and yards clean – see point 4.
  16. Anti-social/irresponsible behaviour will not be tolerated – you each have equal responsibility to make your student house a safe and pleasant place to live for yourselves and your neighbours.

Failure to follow the above points may result in the Mistoria maintenance team being called out and you being charged for any work carried out to fix or replace the problem.

If you have any questions about any of the points listed above, please contact your local Mistoria office on 0800 500 3015.

If you’re looking for a Liverpool or Salford student house, please contact us and let us help you find the perfect place to call home for the next academic year.

Introduction of Article 4 in Salford : “Small houses” in multiple occupation (HMO)

Planning regulations as you will know set at many “Use Classes” for how all building types may be used. This is to ensure that if you want to change from say a domestic dwelling for a family to another use, you can only do so under the council’s guidelines.

HMO houses in Salford previously allowed single household (C3) properties to be turned into “small” HMOs (C4), that is for properties housing three to six unrelated people, without the need for planning permission.

From 25th November 2018 this will no longer be the case in the central Salford boroughs of Broughton, Claremont, Irwell Riverside, Kersal, Ordsall, Langworthy, Weaste and Seedley and the wards of Barton and Eccles.

Following a debate last year it was decided that small family dwellings that were to be turned into HMOs for students or professional to rent together, would now require the council’s planning permission.

Houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) can be defined in a number of different ways, but broadly speaking they are considered to be properties occupied by unrelated individuals who share basic amenities such as a kitchen or bathroom. The traditional source of HMOs tends to be larger, older family dwelling houses. In cities such as Salford and Liverpool these properties are very popular with students who often prefer them over lage student halls.

They generally provide a cost-effective option for student accommodation and allow for simple letting agreements that last for 12 months and that can then either be renewed or the person can leave the property.

Mandatory licensing of larger HMOs was introduced in 2004 for those with 5 or more tenants and 3 or more stories, so you cannot simply turn your own property into a HMO rental property without properly complying with the wide range of legislation that landlords need to be cover.

Each council can have its own set of rules and for Salford all HMOs must adhere to the council’s HMO standards. These standards cover things like minimum room sizes, amenity standards and fire safety requirements.

Landlords themselves who manage HMOs are also covered by legislation and this legislation places certain duties on the individuals managing the property and no compliance with these regulations may result in a prosecution and/or fine (including a civil penalty).

If you are considering an HMO investment property either to source, renovate or to manage then Mistoria Group can assist you. We are the North West HMO experts with over 1200 rooms currently under HMO rental agreements. Cash yields can be high as 13% (both rental and capital) so please call 0800 500 3015 or email us at info@mistoriagroup.com as your next step.

Top tips on how to survive a student house share

student house share

Often university is the first (and only) time most people will experience shared-living. No, living with parents and annoying siblings or other family members doesn’t count!

It can be a culture shock getting used to other people’s ways of living – even carrying out the simplest of daily tasks can vary wildly from one person to another. Similarly, one person’s idea of tidy can be very different to another’s… All potential stress factors and grounds for conflict but it needn’t be that way. After all, you’re all in the same boat; living away from home for the first time and learning to stand on your own two feet and do things for yourself. Everyone has different strengths and playing to them could be the best way to go about house sharing.

Whatever your situation, whether you’re sharing with pre-established friends, course mates, teammates or total strangers, here are some top tips to keep your house-share harmonious.

Keep it clean
Cleanliness is subjective and we all have different ideas of what clean means. It’s best to share with people who have similar standards to you, but, if this isn’t possible, try to compromise. You should set a few ground rules in the house share at the start of the tenancy agreement, such as keeping communal areas clean and tidy. Everyone must agree to clear up after themselves, particularly in the kitchen, and dirty pots should never be left to fester. If necessary, draw up a cleaning rota to ensure that everyone does their fair share of the workload, or agree to split the cost of a weekly or fortnightly cleaner.

Get the bills in order
When you move in, agree how bills will be paid and split between everyone in the house share, as this is a common cause of arguments. Set up bank transfers to cover the monthly outgoings that are your responsibility, and keep a record of what’s been agreed when it comes to making payments. Alternatively, download an app that allows you all to access and track expenses by logging in from your phone.

Stay secure
Keep your belongings in your room and be clever with storage, so that your personal items don’t spill into the communal spaces. Security can be an issue too, with people coming in and out of the home that you don’t know, so it’s worth having some lockable storage in your room for high value items. Be vigilant and, as a house, agree to always lock your doors and windows to prevent break-ins. Also, if you have a burglar alarm, use it!

Share the essentials
It’s a good idea to band together with your housemates and put money towards kitchen basics, such as pots and pans, condiments, spices, and dairy products to save you all over-buying. Each month, you can agree what needs to be replaced and all put money in a pot to make sure that those essentials are restored going forward.

Respect others
Respect your housemates’ privacy; don’t go into their rooms when they’re not there and always knock first if the door is shut. Keep the noise down if you are inviting friends round or coming in late at night, and try to give some warning if you’re having visitors. Being respectful in a house share goes a long way towards preventing conflicts.

Remember to communicate
Have an established method of communication to discuss specific house matters, for example a Facebook or WhatsApp group. If you have an issue to raise, however, the best thing to do would be to communicate face-to-face, so that it can get resolved quickly. If you haven’t developed a social relationship with your housemates, a simple “please” and “thank you”, along with polite conversation, can establish a comfortable atmosphere for everyone.

Choose your housemates carefully
If you have the luxury of getting to choose your housemates, think carefully before you agree to move in with someone, and consider whether you could potentially clash on anything like smoking, obsessive tidiness or having conflicting work schedules. Be honest about your own lifestyle and needs when talking to prospective housemates, as it will be a much more enjoyable experience living with people that you get on with.

Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards landlord advice

minimum energy efficiency standards landlord advice

The buy-to-let (BTL) market saw lots of changes in 2017 (taxation of BTL investments and portfolio landlord rules, etc) and there’s yet more regulation coming in 2018.

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC ) tells you how energy efficient a property is and is rated from A (very good) to G (very poor). It goes without saying that the more energy efficient your property, the lower the energy bills and (usually) the better the overall condition of the house. A high EPC rating also restricts the amount of rent you can charge so keeping up to date with property maintenance work is a good incentive if you want to command the highest yields possible.

Furthermore, EPCs have been a mandatory document for any property rental or sale since 2007 and have a validity of 10 years. As the first of these certificates are coming up for renewal, even stricter energy regulations are being forced upon buy-to-let landlords.

As of 1st April 2018 the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) makes it unlawful to let out a residential property with an EPC rating of F or G (unless exemptions apply). From this date landlords cannot renew or grant tenancies on a property if it does not meet the MEES regulations. Beyond April 2023, the continued private rental of all buildings failing to meet the minimum standard will be outlawed entirely. Local councils will have the power to enforce compliance of the MEES, with penalties of up to £5,000.

The potential risk to landlords (if the property fails to meet MEES) is financial losses and the need to borrow more money to make necessary improvements.

You can view individual EPCs by just entering the property’s postcode here (England & Wales).

There are exemptions to the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards for landlords, details of which (along with further information about the scheme) can be found on the Government website.

If you are a landlord and would like to explore energy improvements for your rental property, we’d be happy to help you. If you would like to discuss ongoing management of your property (portfolio), we would also be delighted to help. Please call us on 0800 500 3015 or email info@mistoria.co.uk.

Student house deposit procedure and quarterly inspections

student house deposit

As Mistoria Estate Agents tenants, you should already be aware of our deposit procedure. It is laid out in detail in your tenancy agreement. However, we still get asked lots of questions about deposits and we’re always looking for ways to improve our processes and communications with our tenants to ensure the best possible outcome for all concerned when it comes to returning deposits at the end of the tenancy. With this in mind, we thought it worth highlighting again how we handle your student house deposit, and some improvements we have put in place to ensure we’re all happy at the end of the year.

Last year there were a few delays on our part in returning deposits in a timely manner to a small number of tenants. This was an internal issue that we have since addressed and put right, however the situation inevitably caused some upset to those affected and we were determined to take tenant comments on board and make changes where necessary. We took the opportunity to look at the whole deposit process and how we can do things differently to avoid similar problems in the future.

The biggest change is the increased focus on our Quarterly Inspections. Going forward we will use these to help us identify any possible issues in plenty of time before the end of the tenancy, and inform tenants in writing of these issue so they may be rectified before vacating the property.

To give this some context, there are four reasons why deductions may be made from your deposit:

  • If you are in rent arrears
  • Late (rent) payment fees
  • If you have caused damage to the property
  • If you have exceeded your utility usage (gas, electric and internet)

Quarterly inspections of the property should enable us to identify the above, giving all a full audit trail of any damages, and time to act on them.

Here’s how the whole process works:

  • Inventories are carried out at the beginning of tenancy to represent the condition of the property on move in
  • Any maintenance will be picked up during quarterly inspections and tenants will be notified in writing of any possible tenant damages shortly after to allow opportunity to rectify them.
  • Photo evidence is taken at quarterly inspections which will show any damages and also show if the tenants have rectified between inspections to the end of the tenancy. A final dated photo will be taken on check out for any outstanding damages that are to be deducted from the deposit.
  • Utility usage is notified to tenants on a quarterly basis, this way any over-usage is known before move out and also gives tenants the chance to alter the usage in the property throughout the year. This will help to reduce or eradicate any deductions for utility usage exceeding the CAP stated in the tenancy agreement from the deposit.
  • A final check out will be carried out on move out and any damages notified to the tenants on the quarterly inspections will be checked to see if rectified. If not then the cost to repair will be deducted from the deposit.
  • Tenants are also advised to take their own photos on move out to use if there are any disputes.

Tenants will be notified of the inspection dates in advance and the appropriate 48 hours notice will be given.

We hope the inspection system will help improve transparency and a better relationship with our tenants. Everyone will know where they stand and any potential delays to deposit returns at the end of the year should hopefully be avoided.

If you have any further questions about our student house deposit procedure or quarterly inspections, please call 0800 500 3015.

Top tips to university success

best student accommodation salford

University is such a special and unique time. For many, it’s your first real step into adulthood and looking after yourself. It’s freedom, independence and a time to grow. Above all else, it’s a time to learn. As you fall into your new life in a new city with new friends it can be easy to forget why you applied for university in the first place; to learn. Whilst it can be argued uni is one big learning curve; learning to look after yourself, cook, clean, be organised and on time are all valuable life skills, you need be focused on your studies and work hard. University can equip you with the knowledge and experience needed to succeed in your future career. Use the time and resources at your disposal wisely and you’ll reap the benefits long after graduation.

Here are our top tips to university success…

Student accommodation

Where you live (and who you live with) can make or break your uni experience. It’s where you’ll spend most of your time and so it needs to be secure, welcoming and comfortable. Getting a good night’s sleep in a safe and cosy environment will dictate your mood, concentration levels and general well-being and happiness. You need an appropriate space to study, relax, socialise, sleep, cook and live.

At Mistoria Estate Agents we provide high quality student houses, furnished with everything necessary for students to survive and thrive including per room rentals, all inclusive bills and high speed internet. Take a look at our website for the best student accommodation Salford and Liverpool has to offer.

A new lifestyle

It’s never too late to get into good habits but the sooner you establish them the better. You’ll know whether you’re a morning person or a night owl so plan your routine around your natural cycle. Remember to eat healthily, drink plenty of water, get a good night’s sleep and be organised. Set your morning alarm allowing enough time for breakfast, plan your meals and remember to include fresh fruit and vegetables in your diet. Get an early night before morning lectures and exams. Buy a diary and plan. Allow yourself time to work and play. Mark key coursework deadlines and exam dates in the diary and work backwards to plan out an achievable work schedule.

Social life

An active and varied social life will have knock on effects in all aspects for your life. Joining societies akin to your interests will help you to make new friends as well as gain valuable experience in your areas of interest. Active involvement in societies and sport team successes can lead to university awards and achievements to add to your CV.

Discipline

Simply put, if you don’t knuckle down and put in the required work, you won’t get the results you need or want. University isn’t like college or sixth form; it requires a lot of self discipline. No one is going to chase you if don’t attend lectures or seminars (eventually you’ll get a formal letter or email), lecturers aren’t there to babysit you and your parents won’t be there to nag you to get out of bed in the morning and drive you to class. You need to be self-motivated and strict with yourself. Work hard everyday and get the most out of your university experience. It will be good practice for working life where self motivation, managing your workload and prioritising will all be key.

Work experience

Take advantage of your university’s connections and opportunities and absorb as much of your department’s resources as possible. Internships and the chance to study abroad are common offerings. Using the resources on offer can give you the edge over competitors when it comes to applying for jobs after university. The saying “it’s not what you know but who you know” applies here. A work experience placement could even lead directly to a job offer if you impress.

Make the most of your university years and you’ll enjoy the fruits of your labour for years to come.

Renting your first student house

liverpool student lettings

Are you a first year university student? If you are, you’ll no doubt be starting to look for next year’s accommodation already.

The search seems to start earlier and earlier each year and at Mistoria Estate Agents we’ve already had lots of Freshers (as well as second, third and fourth year students) enquiring about Salford and Liverpool Student lettings for the 2018/19 year.

We understand that many of you won’t have dealt with landlords or letting agents before and that the whole process can seem pretty daunting and complicated but it needn’t be. Renting your first student house should be a fun experience but it’s really important to make the right decision about where to live and who to live with. Will it be your friends from halls, those on your course, sport teammates or society buddies? Whoever you choose to live with, it’s a big step into adulthood that you can all take together.

When beginning your search it’s crucial you use a reputable letting agent. Mistoria Estate Agents are members of both the National Landlord Association (NLA) and the UKALA (UK Association of Letting Agents). We are a leading agent and the largest private student accommodation provider in the North West with over 250 properties in Liverpool and Salford.

Here are our top tips for first year students looking for Salford and Liverpool Student lettings:

Rent

Rent will be your biggest outgoing each month and you need to know that you can afford to make the payments. Look at your finances, work out how much you can afford and only view properties that fall into your budget. Once you know your budget you can start looking at different types of accommodation and affordable areas.

Finding the right property

At Mistoria Estate Agents we offer all inclusive rent which includes many of the household bills you’ll be expected to pay including energy, water and internet! We also advertise our properties on a room-by-room basis so you and your housemates can view houses with the correct number of bedrooms for your group, as well as quickly determine affordability.

Deposit

Once you’ve settled on a property you and your new housemates will be required to pay a deposit. This is a compulsory payment that all letting agents ask for and is needed for two main reasons; one, as a down-payment to secure the property for you until the start of your tenancy, meaning it cannot be let out to anyone else once you have handed over your money and signed the tenancy agreement. It is there for your protection. Secondly, the deposit will act as a buffer to you and the landlord should one of your housemates up and leave part way through the tenancy, to cover any unpaid bills or for damages to the property during the tenancy.

All deposits received by Mistoria Estate Agents are put into a deposit protection scheme (as required by law) for the length of the tenancy. NO DEPOSITS ARE HELD BY MISTORIA ESTATE AGENTS.

In the vast majority of cases, deposits are returned in full at the end of a tenancy. The only time this doesn’t happen is when there are outstanding utility bills to pay or there is damage to the property that is the fault of the tenants.

Inventory

When you move in to your property the landlord or letting agents will carry out an inventory. This document will state the condition of the property, as well as a list of all fixtures and fittings in the property. It acts as a record for all parties to know what belongs to the landlord and what condition everything is in. At the end of the tenancy this information should help to avoid any disputes.

During the tenancy

At Mistoria Estate Agents we carry out quarterly inspections of all our properties at a time and date agreed with tenants. This helps us keep up with any maintenance issues and any necessary repairs. We do, however, ask that you inform us immediately of any faults or damages so they can be addressed as soon as possible and avoid further problems. For example, if the property is suffering with lots of condensation, we need to address it before it turns into a damp or mould problem. The key to any successful tenancy is to leave the property in the same condition that you found it in – this means keeping on top of cleaning and day-to-day house-keeping and maintenance. We understand many of you will be new to this but you need to take the responsibility of renting a property seriously and treat the property with respect.

Entering into your first student let is a unique and exciting experience and one we hope you will enjoy. For the best private Salford and Liverpool Student lettings, speak to Mistoria Estate Agents on 0800 500 3015 or visit www.mistoriaestateagents.co.uk.
