With the new university year beginning, there are opportunities for landlords to rent out rooms individually. The biggest advantage of renting rooms to students is that there is a consistent, strong demand for accommodation, depending on where you buy of course. In today’s market, students are not the only tenants looking to house-share. According to Ideal Flatmate, the average age of a room-share tenant is now 30 years’ old. Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) are the second largest tenure in the UK; there are about 4.5 million HMO households in England.
