Shared student houses – often referred to as ‘Houses of Multiple Occupancy’ or HMOs – must meet a set of guidelines and requirements enforced by the government by law. This ensures that shared occupancy student houses are kept to a reasonable living standard for students, with the local council having the authority to ensure that your student house meets these guidelines.
How Do I Know If My Accommodation is Accredited?
At SHL, all of our managed properties are accredited and meet the government’s HMO guidelines, so you can rest assured that everything is taken care of from the day you move in. We value our tenants, and that’s why we have worked hard to ensure that the facilities we provide in each of our properties don’t just fulfil the guidelines, but exceed them; from generous living spaces to newly renovated kitchens bathrooms, you can trust that you’re in the right hands.
Moving into your first student house can be daunting, but we’re here to ensure that it’s as easy as possible. Aside from knowing that you are moving into accredited accommodation that surpasses government HMO standards, we also ensure that we take care of all the little extras that come with having your own student pad so that you can focus on your studies.
As well as ensuring your house is clean on arrival, we also provide a complementary cleaning service for your communal areas each term. We’re on hand whenever you need us, and in the unlikely event of you needing any repairs or maintenance work, we ensure that you’re not disrupted for too long. For your convenience, we offer an online maintenance portal that you can access anytime, anywhere. After you report your issue, our in-house maintenance team are on hand to make sure that your problem is quickly resolved and you can go back to enjoying student life.
