Suitable for a wide range of budgets, our low-cost student accommodation is ideal for getting your foot on the property ladder. Based in Redland, Bristol, our estate agents specialise in providing customers with a selection of professional lettings. From breathtaking city apartments to town houses bursting with character, we’ll find the perfect property to suit you.
At PJ Reynolds we have a base portfolio of around 50 properties that we let out to both students and professionals. These are on a 12-month contract from July to June every year. We supply all our properties with any maintenance requirements, as well as gas and electrical testing. For students we make sure that the property is also fully furnished.
Our Process And Prices
If you are interested in renting one of our properties then please visit us and fill in an application form. This is so we have your general details on record and from this we would write to your guarantors and get a contract drawn up. Once you’re happy with the contract and sign it, you then pay the agency fee and wait until June to pay the deposit and the first month’s rent.
When July arrives our agency signs the contracts and hands over the keys to your new home. Our agency fee is 30% of the rent plus VAT and the deposit, which is rent for a month and a half. For student lettings we require UK guarantors to complete the application process.
When Your Contract Is Up
After a year you receive your deposit back, which is processed by the deposit protection service. You receive this once we’ve completed an inspection of the property to make sure all the inventory is accounted for. 95% of tenants receive their deposits back unless there have been any damages.
Our professional selection of accommodation is based on a six-month contract and then after that it changes to a monthly rolling contract. If you are interested in the property visit our agency, pay the agency fee, which is 30% plus VAT, and then fill in the correct forms. In addition to the application forms we require your employer’s details and references, as well as landlord references. The deposit for our professional lettings is one month’s rent.
Whenever you decide to move out, we conduct an inspection and take deductions for any damages to the property. Any damage claims, which affect the refund of the deposit, go through the deposit protection service. We don’t require guarantors for our professional lettings; we just need to make sure you have landlord
references and employer references. However, if this is the first property that you’re renting then we ask for guarantors from your parents.
Landlords Interest Rates
For landlords we offer very low interest rates.Our fees are only 8.5% of the monthly rent where most letting agencies charge 10% or 11%. For any breakages or maintenance jobs, we tend to get someone out to the property within 1-4 working days, depending on how urgent the problem is. Any fees are all paid for by the landlord unless any damages have been caused by the tenants. Visit us to find out more, you’ll find we are very friendly, approachable, and easy to talk to.
At PJ Reynolds students have said we are very quick when it comes to getting property maintenance jobs done.
