About Us

About Us

Student Houses Cardiff is a family business, run from our home in Cardiff. We are professional Landords with over 30 years experience of providing quality accommodation to Cardiff’s students. We bought our very first house when renting here as students ourselves in the 1980s. We are not a letting agent, and own and manage all the houses we let, so you always deal directly with us as your landlords.

Student Houses Cardiff are proud of our reputation for providing some of the highest quality and best managed student houses in Cardiff. We offer quality student houses in the heart of Cathays and Roath, Cardiff’s main student areas. You deal direct with us, the landlord, so there is NO AGENCY FEE to you whatsoever.

Renting direct from your landlord has a lot of advantages – it doesn’t just save you fees, you also avoid the high-pressure sales techniques, and avoid getting ‘stuck in-the-middle’ hell where agent and landlord each blame the other for that delay in fixing your heating. Find out more>>

We give you the fullest possible descriptions of our properties with recent photos and then arrange viewings to suit you. Once you have chosen your new home we take you step by step through our letting procedure from contracts to deposits etc. (including registering your deposit with My Deposits, one of the three government approved schemes for this). We provide a free, full inventory service to check the property at the beginning and end of your tenancy to agree return of your deposit (bond). You receive a Tenants Guide and Welcome Pack and we can help you with all aspects of moving into your new home, from setting up bills and services to obtaining parking permits.

We maintain our properties in excellent condition and provide a full and reliable maintenance service.

We ensure we are up to date with all legal requirements for letting properties. We are licensed Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) holders with Cardiff and Newport Councils and registered with Rent Smart Wales. These registration and licensing schemes were introduced by the Welsh Government to help ensure good standards of management for private rented properties. You should ask landlords if they are licenced when viewing a property.
