Location, Location, Location – Westminster, the London Borough in which Hugh F Shaw & Co are based, offers a wide range of fine educational establishments such as The London Business School, Royal Academy of Music, Regents Business School amongst many others. When searching for a suitable property to rent you will need to consider various points such as proximity to campus, supermarkets, banks, public transport and green spaces. It is advised not leave it until the last minute as this could lead to lack of a choice and some fierce competition from peers attending similar courses, particularly in the summer months of July, August & September.
Assured Shorthold Tenancy – This is the most common type of contract and will include the names of all tenants whom will be held “jointly and severally liable”. This means that if one housemate leaves, the others are still responsible for paying that person’s rent, in other words you are all equally and legally responsible for all of the rent, and not just your own share. Parents or family members may be asked to act as guarantors and accept legal and financial responsibility should you fail to pay your rent or cause damage to the property.
Experience – Hugh F Shaw & Co have been providing long-term accommodation for local and overseas students for over 40 years. Many of our past tenants have recommended us to their friends and peers seeking a professional, informative and efficient service. In fact some of our past tenants who originally came to London to study, have since settled here, found employment, purchased investment properties and have returned to us to let their properties as they know we will deliver the same excellent service to their tenants as was provided to themselves all those years ago.
