The simple fact is that some students can be dreadful tenants and therefore many landlords don't want to take the risk. I've been to several student houses which have suffered a fair amount of damage. Damage aside, students are also more likely to be louder which, in a shared house/houses divided into flats, can be a big problem for the landlord, particularly if the other rooms/flats are occupied by professionals.(Original post by helpthetenant)
both of you, in your posts you seem to justify the fact that they have their reason somehow to accept only professionals.
In my second year, I lived in a house which had been advertised as wanting 'professionals only', because I managed to convince the landlord I was a nice, sensible person. I was the only student living there and I had to jump through bloody hoops to get it - apparently aside from the other problems, students have a bit of a reputation for not paying their rent. For me though, it was lovely compared to student accommodation - I really value my peace and quiet
How are you celebrating?
