Tenancy types explained

Residential let

This is a let using a normal Assured Short Hold Tenancy agreement (AST). All of our residential lets are to working professional tenants and are on a 6, 12, 18 or 24 month fixed term contract. Demand is very high for all property types in Bournemouth, Poole & Christchurch. Your rent is also guaranteed by us under this scheme and very popular with our clients.

Pros: Low risk, good rental yields and low wear and tear.

Cons: Can lead to lower yields compared to other tenancy types.

Student lettings

Student let

This is a let using a normal Assured Short Hold Tenancy agreement (AST), however it would normally be between 2 - 6 individual tenants (students) who would share a property for an agreed term. This is usually between 10 - 11 months. The rental income is higher compared to normal residential lets but a void period of 1 month is also standard practice during student change over. This time is commonly spent making repairs or improvements to the property ready for the next student year. Landlords are also required to have a student licence to let to students which is issued by Bournemouth or Poole council.

Pros: High rental yields compared to normal residential.

Cons: Possible high wear and tear and 1 months void period to take into consideration.


HMO or House of Multiple Occupancy can be very profitable but without the right advice or experience can also be a very costly business. In short these lets are room lets on AST agreements for 3 – 6 months. They are working professionals sharing a kitchen, living area and bathroom and the landlord or agent is responsible for the bills and cleaning of the property. If done correctly these types of lets can generate very impressive yields but tenant selection and having a good agent on board is key. We manage and advise clients on hundreds of HMO’s in the area so if you are considering purchasing a HMO or you have a potential HMO and would like more advice please contact us.

Pros: High rental yields and low void periods due to demand.

Cons: Possible high tenant turn over and running costs as landlords are liable for all bills.
