Lovely Landlords!

Rave Reviews

Each year we are given feedback by our student tenants. We reproduce for you here some of those comments. We have a file with all the originals in, please ask to see it when you view one of houses.


A lot of tenants like to leave us reviews via Google, so don’t miss the feedback given on Google Reviews

About us

We have been letting student houses in Nottingham since 1985.

We are 3 professional people, 2 chartered surveyors:

Paul Taylor MRICS & Kate Taylor FRICS, and a qualified Methods Engineer: John Pickavance, BSc

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has a strict code of professional conduct for its members, so you are further protected from any malpractice by our association with RICS.

Kate also runs her own business offering training for graduate and fully qualified surveyors and works directly for the RICS at times. See www.apctaylormade.co.uk

We own, manage, and largely maintain the houses all ourselves. We have no shop or office premises, no staff & pay no agents (who in our experience very often just get in the way of a good landlord-tenant relationship). This is our business model, and it is how we can offer such amazing value rents (just in case you were wondering where’s the catch!). It’s the sort of personal service that only small businesses can offer.

Our homes all have a friendly, homely, feel. Many of our tenants opt to stay on for a 2nd year, and no one does that unless they are happy with House, Location & Landlords!

We keep a file of previous tenant's comments on our service. It is very favourable. Please ask to see it.

All deposits taken are placed with the independent government-approved body called the Deposit Protection Service, so you know your deposit money WILL be returned to you at the end of the tenancy as long as you have complied with all the tenancy agreement terms and conditions.

Last year we only retained deposits form 5% of our tenants - the rest got a full refund. How many landlords can say that!

Also we are a Member of the Unipol DASH Code (Decent And Safe Homes). Take a look at what this actually means for your protection at Unipol's website.

Ours are Secure Houses

Every house has a mains powered burglar alarm system.

Every house has a mains powered & interlinked fire/smoke detection & alarm system.

Every room has its own lock which requires a key to lock it, so you cant lock yourself out.

Safe Renting with Us

Landlord-tenant relationships are notorious for being uneasy at best. We try are upmost to dispel those myths and old ways of working. You will find we are professional friendly and helpful. But don’t take our word for it, look at our Google Reviews(link) from previous tenants. Look too at the bodies we are members of, you will see their logos displayed at the bottom of each page of this website, five of them. They set standards which we adhere to, or even surpass! You may not be familiar with all the names and what they stand for but ask around or look it up online and I think you will be pleased. As just an example, because we are members of UNIPOL you will at some point in the year most likely receive a letter like the one copied in below. It’s nice, reassuring stuff!
