Why choose student rentals?

Renting to students for the nine months outside the summer allows you the option to essentially have a longterm rental combined with the option of using the property yourself or doing short term lets during the summer months.

Students rent their houses room by room usually between £200 and £220 per month.

The areas along Lissadell Avenue in Portstewart are particularly popular with students, but properties outside this area also do well, including Portrush.

Until recently you needed a HMO (house of multiple occupancy) certificate if renting to more than three people who are not from the same family. Now, however, you need to get planning permission from the local council (in this case the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council).

Visit the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council website for full details, but we can also help with this.

Can you combine student with summer rentals?

If combining student with summer rentals there is usually a turnaround period after the students move out and during which the property should be brought up to the standard expected by holiday makers. The extent of this work could be as little as providing the facilities and items previously supplied by the students, but this will vary case by case.

Some landlords keep the smallest bedroom - or a shed or garage - locked during student tenancy in which to keep items used during summer rentals.


This is the option to rent out furnished or unfurnished for at least 12 months…

sometimes as long as 24 months at a time!
  • All rental properties must have an EPC certificate (energy performance certificate)
  • At North Coast we like all properties to have carbon monoxide monitors and all oil burners to have their services carried out annually
  • All landlords must be registered as landlords
  • All properties must be cleaned prior to occupation

I have used this company for the past 5years and would not go anywhere else!

The staff and the service that my family receive is second to none, always very warm and friendly and really helpful. The properties themselves that I have stayed in have been fabulous, and nothing is ever a problem to the girls when asked.
