Emergencies

We will do our upmost to deal with any urgent issue as quickly as possible, however, please be aware the festive period can become extremely busy. Any issue listed below is classed as urgent:

  • Fire – call 999
  • Gas leak – call 0800 111 999

  • Broken windows or doors following a break in

Please remember to ensure your emergency is genuine and cannot be resolved during our opening hours. If any contractor is called out as an emergency and a repair is not warranted, you will be liable for all costs.

Security

Christmas is a time of year where a lot of people travel away from their home, students in particular, and with this brings the opportunity for burglary’s. Please make sure that if you are going to be away from your property over the festive period, it is left as safe and secure as possible. If you have an intruder alarm, please ensure it is used and if you don’t know the code just contact us and we will provide it for you. All windows and doors should be securely locked using any possible means and the most important thing to remember, don’t leave valuables on show. If you leave laptops, electronics, jewellery etc. visible through windows it could provoke an opportunist.

Our advise is always the following:

  • Securely lock all doors and windows
  • Do not leave any valuables on show
  • Set light timers for lamps
  • Close downstairs curtains

If you need to contact us at all prior to the Christmas break, please use the usual numbers and email addresses.

We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Astute

Hello Students!

As autumn brings falling leaves, a pinch of cold and darker nights, the student property cycle starts again. Properties are now being advertised for the 2019/2020 academic year, so, if you’re already set with your housemates for the year to come, it’s time to snap up your next home.

It may feel like you’ve only just moved into your current home, and you’d be right, it’s only been a couple of months since you excitedly got your keys. But, properties around Fallowfield, Withington and Victoria Park do not hang around for long.. especially the big ones.

We all know that your student years are about what happened in your house just as much as what happened out of it. If you’re part of a big group and you want to stick together, it is recommended you start your search early. Houses of 5 Bed + will always be snapped up first so now is the time to make some big decisions.

We offer viewings every weekday and also on Saturdays, as long as we have 24 hours notice for the current tenants.. we will do our absolute best to schedule a viewing to suit your group.

All properties are secured on a first come first serve basis so unfortunately when they’re gone, they’re most definitely gone.

If you need any help or advice whilst searching for your next property, give us a call and we’ll be happy to assist where we can.

See you all soon, Astute.
