    terms for student lets

    1) I understand the student lets contract normally starts from approx 1Sep to 31Aug

    is the above correct?

    also is there a scope to rent the property to mature students before Sep? If so what dates should I target.
    I am asking because my property may otherwise be empty from Feb onwards and I want to rent to students only and not family AST.

    Any dates are possible: as long as tenant and landlord agree. There are no special rules beyond all tenancy rules.

    In current climate I think tenant has better chance of getting what they want.
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      It depends on the area I think. Some are 1st September to 31 July. Some have semesters so are completely different. Confused as to why mature students would have different terms?

        If you align a rental period for semester 2 (at my University this is Monday 1 February 2021 to Saturday 12 June 2021), then you might be able to pick up some exchange students doing a semester abroad - but in the current climate there probably aren't going to be many exchange students.

          The only possibilities I can think of are PhD students who dependent on funding and what the University allows may have start dates at various times of the year. In a normal year the above would be an option although Universities may provide accommodation themselves for Erasmus students if they have spaces.

            My normal dates are mid July to mid July. I ended up taking lower than usual rent from early October. Content, if saddened.

              I think you'd be lucky to find a student now as they tend to make the arrangements a way in advance of the college term starting.
