Specialist letting agency and property management company Student Housing has had its busiest quarter, it says.
The Lincoln-based agency added 30 new properties to its portfolio between October and New Year's Eve.
Director Harry Conti says: “January tends to be a very busy month as historically we see a rise in enquiries from landlords looking to change agents.”
He continues: "Landlords who've not yet found tenants for September start to get concerned and every year since we opened for business we've seen an increase in enquiries in the New Year. I can't see this year being any different and we're ready and waiting to help them."
The addition of new properties in the final quarter of 2019, takes Student Housing's portfolio to 1,331 bedrooms.
As well as working with private landlords, the agency has seen an increase in interest from accommodation block owners looking to outsource property management.
"It's the next logical step for our development” says Conti.
“We are working successfully with lots of private landlords, who's properties have three or four bedrooms. However, we are also working with several owners of accommodation blocks that have 50 plus bedrooms.”
Former University of Lincoln students Conti and his business partner, Marcus Askam Yates, left their degree courses early to start Student Housing after struggling to find accommodation they liked.
