Information for landlords

The University of St Andrews has a direct leasing scheme which offers property owners the opportunity to lease their houses or flats to the University for subletting to groups of students.

The University is looking for furnished properties of a good standard which would be suitable for students. In return, the owner is guaranteed:

  • regular payment of rent (monthly in advance)
  • a full management service during the tenancy
  • the return of the property on the date at the end of the lease with reparation for any damage caused to the property by the tenants (fair wear and tear excepted). 

There is a management charge of 15% for the direct leasing scheme.
