STUDENTS

As a student you’re most likely going to be renting your first property… this is a big step!

You may have heard horror stories of student houses and estate agents that don’t seem to care about their student tenants. We take a proactive approach to make sure we are different by taking a fresh and fair approach to student lettings.

Champion Property was excellent, quick and efficient when signing contacts and was at hand whenever needed. Would highly recommend!

CLEAR EXPLANATIONS

At Champion Property Management we specialise in student accommodation; since 2014 we have let houses to thousands of students in Norwich. A big part of what we do is teach you how to look after a house; from how to use the boiler to how to manage mould growth and condensation, we want to make sure you know how to get the most out of your new home. We will walk you through the whole process form start to finish offering free advice along the way.

ONLINE APPLICATIONS

Once you have decided on a house that you would like to let you will then move into the application process. This has been streamlined over years of trial and error to provide a service that is straight ford and can all be completed from a smartphone. 

PRE-CHECK OUR DOCUMENTS

Demos of all our contracts and tenancy documents can be found of this website. This allows you and your guarantors to check all the paperwork through before agreeing to a tenancy, so there will be no nasty surprised. Our contracts have been checked and approved by both the UEA and the Eastern Landlords Association. Download our documents here.

24/7 HELP

While we hope that there will be no emergencies during your tenancy, we make sure that there is someone on call 24 hours a day that you can get hold of if need be. Your safety as a tenant is of our utmost concern and we will do everything we can to make sure maintenance requests and emergencies are dealt with efficiently. 

BEGINNING THE PROCESS

  1. Have a look at our “to let” properties and search for a house you want to view
  2. Call us and arrange a viewing – know in advance when you are free, and try and get as many of your group there as possible.
  3. Turn up on time, and ready with a list of questions, things that are important to you.
  4. Once you have decided on a house you like, don’t waste any time, let us know you want to take it.
  5. You may be asked for a holding deposit – this isn’t a fee and will eventually make up part of your damage deposit, but it tells us and the landlord that you really want the house.
  6. Fill in the online application form, send off your guarantor form and send over the full deposit.
  7. We will contact you to arrange to meet and sign the paperwork. 
  8. When we meet we will:
    1. a. Sign 2 copies of the tenancy agreement, one for you and one for us.
    2. b. Fill out a standing order form to send to your bank for the rent payments (bring your bank details)
    3.   c. See your passports for the right-to-rent check
  9. Thats it – the house is yours!
  10. We will now protect your deposit, and contact you a few weeks before your tenancy starts to arrange a check in, where we will talk you through the house and help you set up your bills etc.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU
