A bit about HOP

We’re old hands when it comes to matching students to their ultimate accommodation. First as Let Leeds and now as HOP, we have been leading the way in lettings since 2009. Nothing gives us more of a fuzzy feeling inside than helping students find their perfect match.

From the get-go, we have been determined to provide an innovative service for young people who are searching for student accommodation in Leeds. Our motto is ‘Every Move Matters’ and it’s an ethos that captures how we feel about everything we do here at HOP.  From start to finish, we aim to offer every student a truly top notch and personal experience.

We’ve even won a number of awards for our customer service and have received heaps of positive reviews on Feefo and Google from happy landlords and tenants. We could let that kind of thing go to our collective heads, but that’s not the way we operate at HOP. In our minds, if customers are happier with us than they have been with any other agency, that just means we’re doing our job.

Our friendly team – many of whom were once students themselves – are here to help you find the home that is right for you. Rest assured that we will go the extra mile to find, not just any available rental, but the perfect location that matches your budget, academic needs and safety considerations.

 

Our Process: 9 steps to your perfect student home

Step 1: Start the search

Search our available student accommodation.

Whether you’d prefer to browse our website, check out Rightmove or scroll through our social channels, the first step in finding your perfect student home is to take a look at our properties and see what takes your fancy.

Click here for our property search or we can also send our hottest picks straight to your inbox, just register your details here.

Step 2: Call us to arrange a viewing

Call us to arrange a viewing

Give us a call to book in a viewing and we can match you to other suitable properties at the same time.

All our staff are super friendly and will take you through the options available to you, just give the Leeds Team a call on 0113 322 9324.

We’ve invested in high tech cameras and virtual tour technology so you can fully explore the property online without even leaving home.

Student accommodation Leeds city centre

Step 3: Viewings

Viewings

All our properties have virtual tours but for in-person viewings, we have adapted our processes in line with the latest Covid-19 advice.

This means we are taking all the necessary precautions and can only attend viewings with a maximum of two people. We’ll also need to ask you whether you’ve had any symptoms or if you’ve been asked to self-isolate, before the viewing – as well as checking the same with the current tenants.

One of our knowledgeable student property experts will meet you at the property show you round, fully equipped with PPE.

Step 4: Reserve the property

Reserve the property

Fallen in love with your dream student home?

We’ll fill out a Pre-Tenancy Agreement with you, which details key information regarding the Tenancy.  In addition, we’ll take a Holding Deposit to take it off the market, this is usually one week’s rent.

You will then have 15 days to complete your application or it goes back on the market! Your Holding Deposit will go towards your Deposit and transferred to a deposit account upon signing the Tenancy Agreement.

Leeds Student Housing

Step 5: Complete your application

Complete your application

Completing your application is easy using the HOP Online Application.

Fill in the details and submit the required documents – all electronically! You can even do it from your phone.

These details will form part of the final Tenancy Agreement that you and your housemates will need to sign at the end of the process.

Step 6: Guarantor paperwork

Guarantor paperwork

As a Student you will require a Guarantor who will guarantee that you will pay your rent for the duration of the Tenancy. If for some reason, you don’t pay your rent, then the Guarantor will be liable for it. A Guarantor is usually a parent or guardian earning over £25,000 p/a.

As you complete your HOP Online Application with their details, the Guarantor will be emailed a link to fill in their information too and upload the relevant documents online. The Guarantor will then be referenced and credit checked as part of the application process.

Step 7: The property is yours!

The property is yours!

Once the application, paperwork and referencing is complete, the final Tenancy Agreement will be sent electronically to all parties to sign. Once signed, we’ll check everything is as it should be, counter sign it, and the balance of the Deposit becomes due. The final, signed Tenancy Agreement will be issued with prescribed information automatically, once completed.

You’ll then need to pay the remainder of your Deposit. The Holding Deposit carries forward to become part of your deposit, and the whole thing is held by the DPS (Deposit Protection Service), which holds it securely throughout your Tenancy.

Step 8: Pay first month's rent

Pay first month’s rent

As it will state in your Tenancy Agreement, 14 days before your Tenancy start date, you’ll need to pay your first rent instalment and arrange key collection dates with the HOP team.

It’s important you set up a standing order to pay the initial rent payment by this deadline, as we can’t release keys until these funds are cleared.

On a joint tenancy, where you are sharing with housemates, all parties will need to have paid their first rent instalment in full before the keys can be released to anyone in the group.

Step 9: Move-in day!

Move in day!

Book an appointment with the team to collect your keys and Tenancy Pack either on, or a few days after, your Tenancy start date (usually around the 1st July for students).

Don’t forget that you will need to bring your passport/ID with you so we can release the keys.

Then you can move in to your perfect pad and set about making it your new home!

Download the HOP Student Tenant Handbook

In this handbook we’ve covered the basics about the property, paying your rent, what your responsibilities are as a Tenant and how to report things like maintenance issues. Hopefully we’ve covered most of what you need to know, but if you’ve got any further questions just give the Student Team a call.

Report a Repair

Once you’re in the property, you can contact us if you ever have any problems. You can report a maintenance issue at any time, and we promise to get on the case within 24 hours.

Sometimes we may need to conduct major repair works which may take some time, but usually we aim to get minor issues resolved within 48 hours.

What About The Properties?

First and foremost, you want to find a place that is right for you. For many of you, this may well be your first time living away from home – or living in Leeds – so we’ll do our best to find you a place that you will love. We’ve got plenty of handy advice such as our HOP Student Area Guides or the Student Tenant Handbook to help you find your way around the area and your home.

We specialise in high quality student properties from two beds to ten beds, all across the Leeds area, and we know that the most popular ones for Leeds students are always 3 to 5 beds, so we make sure to always have plenty of those.

All our student properties are all inclusive. This means that every student property comes with bills already included, as standard, and there are also no signing fees to pay! Plus, you also have the option to upgrade to our premium bills package for more brilliant extras.

We are pretty discerning when it comes to the properties and Landlords we work with, we make sure that we only choose the best ones. This means you can rest assured that each and every home meets our high standards (and yours!).

Use our Student Property Search and find out what’s available now but, be quick – things move incredibly quickly in the student season!

To Parents

Our experience is that first or second-year university students at Leeds Trinity or the University of Leeds are not always the ones that contact us about student housing. Their parents do. So if you have a son or daughter about to go away to university for the first time and you are losing sleep over the prospect, get in touch with HOP. We completely understand and sympathise with your concerns – and we are ready to work with you from day 1 to ensure your loved one gets the best, most convenient, and safest student accommodation the city has to offer.

A Letting Agent That Genuinely Enjoys Finding Student Accommodation in Leeds for You

If you’ve tried other letting agents in the city, you may have found that some are less than enthusiastic when it comes to helping students find somewhere nice to live in Leeds. If this has been the case, you are in for a pleasant surprise when you deal with us. We genuinely look forward to helping students find somewhere great to stay when they come to Leeds and we will go out of our way to make sure that the accommodation we find you has everything you could possibly need. At HOP, we won’t treat you like a nuisance because we genuinely value your business and we have a team that specialises in accommodation for university and college students in the city.

Student Accommodation in Leeds in a Wide Variety of Areas

Some students are keen to stay as close to the city centre as possible while others like the idea of having somewhere to retreat to at the end of the day that is far from the madding crowd. Whatever type of neighbourhood you think you’ll be happiest in and whatever size budget you have to work with, you can trust HOP to find a place that you’ll feel at home in during your time in Leeds.

Find the Ideal Location with HOP

At HOP we know every road and side street in Greater Leeds. We can tell you exactly what type of housing is available where, and whether it dovetails with your particular needs. And we are often the first ones to know when a new rental property hits the market.

The point is, there’s a lot at stake when it comes to where you live. So much so, that it doesn’t make sense to use a new or inexperienced letting agent or agency. Stick with the pros here at HOP. We’ll set you up with student accommodation in Leeds that you’ll look back on fondly years from now.
