Escape Campus is the only student lettings agency in Lancaster to have achieved the coveted ‘agent member’ status with Lancaster University Homes. This means that all Escape Campus’s houses are approved by Lancaster University for off campus lettings.
This means that Escape Campus’s houses are of a very high quality, with rigorous adherence to all their guidelines for what constitutes a decent student house. These include inspections to make sure that the fire safety, cleanliness, security, furniture, equipment and décor is up to standard.
Escape Campus works hard to create positive relationships with both their landlords and their students, something that’s evident in the great reviews that they have on social media and elsewhere.
Students know that when they rent with Escape Campus they will be getting a nice student house that’s well equipped and secure. Landlords know that they are in the safe hands of an agent who really knows their stuff and gets things done quickly, protecting their house and ensuring they get a decent return on investment.
As a professional set up, Escape Campus have various professional memberships in addition to their ‘recommended’ status with Lancaster University Homes as follows;
- They are protected by using Client Money Protection (meaning that any monies like rent or deposits are held in accounts that do not form part of Escape Campus’s assets)
- They are members of the UKALA
- They are members of The Property Redress Scheme
- They are members of The Deposit Protection Service
If you are a landlord and you are interested in letting your home, then Escape Campus is the perfect solution. We can let your house for you – and we can also help you to make sure that your house is up to the standards required before you can let out your property. We are up to speed with the trends in student housing and can recommend that you equip your house with the right things (like high speed broadband!) to attract tenants quickly.
We can then either just let the house for you and you can manage it, or we can manage the house all year for you too meaning that you can relax knowing that your house and its tenants are in safe hands.
We live locally and we have emergency numbers available so that tenants can call us if anything happens, and we make a point of introducing ourselves to neighbours so that they can contact us if there is ever an issue.
This means that your investment is protected and we take responsibility for the welfare of your house and tenants, so if you are living away from Lancaster, you know that there is someone here to take care of things.
