Tenants - Why choose Mighty Student Living?
Please read on to find out how we are different to our competitors…
- We have a dedicated student team focused on looking after your needs as a tenant. We genuinely care about our tenants and unlike many of our competitors, we have a 24-hour emergency contact number.
- For anything other than an emergency we have special repair reporting software for you to report your problem to us 24/7, 7 days a week. You can even report a repair in your chosen language and we will receive it in English.
- You can be sure that your deposit is safe. Unlike many of our competitors, we keep hold of the deposit in our own bank account – we don’t hand it over to a “middle man”. All our tenancy deposits are registered with the Tenancy Deposit Scheme as is a legal requirement. The deposit is then stored in a separate bank account which is fully regulated by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. Rest easy knowing that your deposit can never be spent by the business.
- Unlike our competitors, we properly vet every single landlord and house on our website. All of the houses you see are managed by Mighty Student Living - we don’t have an “advertise” service where any landlord can upload their property without being properly checked to see if it meets the legally required standards.
- Electronic signatures - Take the hassle out of signing for your student home and sign your agreement anywhere without the annoyance of organising your whole group to come to the office!

How can I pay my rent
Rent can be paid via online banking. Please try to remember to quote the reference provided to you by us when making payments. If you can’t remember it then please at least quote part of your second name and part of your property address as a reference for any payment eg if your name is Mark Spencer and you live at 9 Wellington Street, quote something like “Spence9Welling”
The bank details for rent payments are:
- Account name: P and PC Survey
- Account number: 23664023
- Sort code: 40-24-03
- IBAN: GB76HBUK40240323664023
- BIC Code: HBGBUK4B
What if, due to unforeseen circumstance I am going to pay rent late?
The most important thing is contact us via email or phone and let us know when we can expect to receive your rent and explain why it will be late. We then know not to chase you for payment and can also let the Landlord know so we can manage his/her expectations.
Staying in your house for another year
If you wish to stay at your property for another year, please email [email protected] to let us know. We will be advertising your house in November but will contact you to give your group a chance to renew before we sign up new students for the following academic year.
The benefit of staying another year is that:
- You can leave items in the house over the Summer – if the Landlord is doing works to the house we may need to ask you to make you aware of where not to leave items.
- You have a lot less hassle choosing and moving to new accommodation!
What happens if I drop out of my course?
We appreciate that sometimes unforeseen events happen. Although the rent does need to continue to be paid, we can work with you to help find a replacement person for your room who can take over rent payments. There is an administration fee that we charge as there is a lot of work for us in producing documentation etc, especially so if we help with advertising and viewings. Our administration fee for processing a change of tenant is £200 including VAT.
If you have all signed a joint tenancy then obviously your house mates need to approve of whoever is taking over your tenancy.

Using Mighty Student Living as an intermediary in finding a place in Lancaster was a blessing as I decided over Christmas that commuting from Manchester was wear and tear on me and the car. I found them online via sparerooms.com, though the place I saw online matched what was featured, I knew it was not for me. Claire listened to what i would like and ensured that I found a place I call home. I have been here since February and my experience with both Mighty Student Living and the landlord has gone smoothly. Thanks for all your assistance in ensuring I find a place that I can call home whilst away from home.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Peter and his team especially Isobel who went above and beyond to help us try and find a home for my daughter to rent. The service we received was AMAZING. The courtesy that the whole team gave me certainly puts Mighty House firmly at the forefront of my mind when thinking of premier customer service.
I would like to add that one of the main reasons Mighty House stood out for me was after 3 months of discussion with estate and letting agents in Lancaster, Mighty House was the only company we faced who had staff with nice manners and were able to provide good customer service, I’m afraid this is not so with all agents in Lancaster. They came across as the only letting agents who actually cared about the customer standing in front of them, rather than just trying to palm off excuses or not listening at all as was the case with many others. All in all excellent service received. Thanks Guys. :)

I have been extremely happy to rent from Mighty House and I am really grateful for all your help in the past one year. I will recommend Mighty House to my friend and anyone else for sure. I think I speak for everyone at 64, Coulston Road when I say that your management has been first class!

Mighty House is a very helpful company which provided clear information which allowed me to make my final decision when choosing a place to live in my second year of university. The Services I received from Peter Charnley were excellent he constantly contacted me to let me know how the application process was proceeding and if there were any issues which needed to be dealt with. Also Mighty House was able to find an area which was convenient with my needs despite me being a little late with my accommodation application. I would recommend this company when looking for high quality housing.

The team helping me with finding my house were absolutely amazing. I had to find a place quite last minute and put heaps of pressure on them, but they absolutely delivered. I won't recommend anyone leaving it as last minute as I did but thank you to everyone that helped me. Customer service was excellent and I felt very looked after!
