- We use reliable tradesmen and our in-house maintenance team to help you save on maintenance costs.
- Your property is our No.1 priority – when students move in we make sure to talk them through dealing with damp, mould and how to work the boiler, clean the oven and more.
- Our fees are competitive and there are no surprises and no hidden costs.
- We can pay the gas and electric bills and charge the owner a fixed cost each year no matter how much the students use removing any uncertain large utility bills.
- We know how important a good Internet connection is for everyone, especially students. We can provide the broadband connection for you and ensure your tenants receive the best possible connection for the property. Where possible, we work with Virgin Media to provide the fastest possible connection.
- Mighty Student Living offer rent guarantee options for extra peace of mind – we can evaluate your property and make you an offer of a guaranteed rent each year – you may be surprised how much you would receive – please ask us for more information.
- If there are problems with your property, we’re the experts – we have considerable experience in resolving issues with damp and condensation, and our knowledge of specifications for kitchens and bathrooms mean you won’t spend over the odds if you need to improve these areas.

How do I know if I need the whole house rental or a room rental service? OR I have just bought a house and want to rent to students but I have missed the start of term!
Our aim is to let properties for as much rent as possible – no matter what time of year you give us your property to manage. We regularly have houses to let that have been bought part way through the academic year and so it is normal for us to maximise income until the students move in.
If a group of students don’t rent your house then there we would normally let it on an individual room rent basis to students which still provides a similar rental income.
We also rent houses to professionals by the room – especially those houses which are given to us to manage mid-University term and are empty. Again, this provides a similar rent to a student landlord let and there is a good market for good quality professional room lets in Lancaster.
We work hard to achieve excellent returns for our Landlords. We are helpful and knowledgeable and hear to help you make the highest return possible from your investment property. Please call us today to ask for our advice.
Security and peace of mind
- We are fully regulated by the RICS and Property Ombudsman. We use RICS regulated client accounts to prevent Landlord money from being used by the business.
- We pay rent over as soon as possible after we collect it from your tenants and with each payment you receive a landlord’s statement with a full explanation of your income and expenses.
- Your property is managed professionally by staff with several years’ experience in lettings and the student market. We are on hand if you want to call us or pop in to chat about your property during the tenancy.
- We conduct a full inspection and produce a photographic inventory of the property prior to tenants moving in.
- We stay in touch with you, reporting efficiently and effectively. We communicate with you all year round to keep you in the loop.
- We have a superb reputation and plenty of tenant referrals. As landlords ourselves we have had bad experiences using other letting agents. We set up Mighty Student Living in 2013 to provide the service we would expect, and have gone from strength to strength.
A landlord-focused service
- Want to provide your own utilities or have a specialist tradesman you want to use for a particular maintenance issue? No problem! We know that each landlord has different requirements and we tailor our management packages to suit you.
- We have a real focus on value-for-money repairs, should you choose for us to handle these. The tradesmen we use have a clear remit on the standards of repair we expect. Working closely with Mighty Maintenance, we have our own in house team of contractors ready to assist. Alternatively, we can report all repairs to you so you can decide whether you wish to do works yourself.
- We are Chartered Surveyors. We project manage substantial refurbishments and have a wealth of knowledge that our landlords benefit from.
- We are commercially minded and know how to achieve the best rents possible for your student property – we use different letting strategies depending on the location and size of the property.
- As landlords ourselves we have had bad experiences using other letting agents. We set up Mighty House (our residential sales & lettings partners) in 2013 to provide the service we would expect, and have gone from strength to strength. If you are on a lookout for a new HMO property, contact us and with the help of Mighty House, we will find you an ideal buy-to-let property.
- We understand that happy student landlord tenants are more likely to stay an extra year or two at your property – tenants need treating with respect and from experience we know that effective communication solves most issues that may arise.
- Every year we have a number of tenants deciding to stay on in the houses they are already renting.
- Our office is open 6 days a week so our tenants know any issues will be dealt with promptly, and we have a 24-hour emergency out of hours contact number.
- We have a user-friendly tenant repair reporting system which can be translated into several different languages. This makes it really simple for tenants to report repairs 24/7, 7 days a week and for us or you to instruct the appropriate tradesman.
- Tenant deposits are protected with MyDeposits and stored in a RICS regulated bank account.
There are no better people to look after your rental properties than experienced, capable, professional landlords themselves. Maximising rental income and keeping wear and tear to a minimum is what we spend our time focusing on!

As an expat investing in student accommodation I couldn't have found a better partner than Mighty Student living. The whole process ran super smoothly, first viewings online, later direct at the property and then finding suitable tenants. All the staff are very professional and extremely friendly, answering all questions almost always within 30 minutes. A special thank's to Beccy and Cherrie who's competence and positive attitude made them a joy to work with. I can definitely recommend Mighty Student living, Thank you

I am a landlord with several student properties managed by Mighty House. I only own properties I would be happy to live in myself. I cannot praise their efforts on my behalf highly enough- especially Cherrie, Jack and Greg.

I have worked with Mighty Student Living for 4 years, and throughout that time they have been professional, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Living 250 miles away I need agents who I can rely on and will keep me up to date with what is going on. Emma Brady has been my property manager for the last 2 years and nothing is too much trouble, she will pop over to a property to read meters, check up on maintenance problems, recommend contractors etc. Emma is usually very busy, particularly with covid, but will always return calls/emails quickly and despite managing many properties always remembers what has happened and is going on with mine. It is such a reassurance that Emma is managing my properties!

I have had the most wonderful experience with MSL through Emma Brady. She has been nothing but helpful and understanding during a turbulent time. She maintains professionalism throughout with humanity and care, making me feel supported with situations that have been outside of both of our control. I couldn't recommend working with her enough! Thank you so much.

I had the opportunity to work with Mighty Student Living part time helping out with the student lettings. It is an amazing company to work for, the staff are so friendly and make everyone feel welcome. I can't thank Mighty Student Living enough for the opportunity, especially Olivia and Emma who oversaw my viewings and ensured my day always ran smoothly :)

Mighty Student manage a couple of my student properties and take all the hassle out of owning student lets. They have been very proactive in finding tenants and addressing the students needs. Kirstie and Tracy have been particularly helpful.

Felicity assisted us in dealing with an energy supplier in a speedy and professional manner. I have found her very pleasant and proficient to deal with. As student letting landlords, we need an agency to provide tip-top service with signing up of tenants, dealing with day to day issues. This has been our experience with Mighty Student Living.
Mighty Student Living was recommended to us for student letting and we are very pleased that we chose them for this. I can highly recommend their company.

In my experience Tracy, Jason and the team have so much care for the students, the properties and Landlords. I have been with them for 3 -4 years and they continually go above and beyond for Landlords and students.
They encourage Landlords to do necessary work to keep properties in good shape, plus as they have an in-house maintenance team, so all the quotes for fixing things are very reasonable. I love that they always come to us with solutions not problems i.e. they tell us the issue and then give us the different solutions, plus let us know how much each will cost.
I have a few properties across the UK and can hand on heart say Mighty Student Living is one of the best agents I have ever worked with.
