student property management

Caxtons has managed my student property portfolio for many years. I have been consistently impressed with the personnel and professional level of service that is provided by all members of the student team. I am aware that they manage numerous properties for many landlords and yet, whenever I have a query, they are aware of the situation regarding my property and make me feel like a valued client. I look forward to working with Caxtons for many years to come.

Duncan Reeves and the whole Caxtons Canterbury Student Lets team are superb. As a landlord experiencing issues with my student let property recently, they have been incredibly efficient at coordinating repairs, communicating progress with me, and liaising with tenants and neighbours. Caxtons are extremely professional: they manage all HMO compliance, and undertake detailed inventory, check out, and photographic records. They support students throughout their tenancy, dealing promptly with any concerns and to ensure good property management. I highly recommend them for both landlords and tenants.

Caxtons has provided a first class student letting service, which I think is fair to both tenant and landlord. The team is efficient and has ensured that tenants are selected in good time and respect the property they are renting. Based on my experience I would highly recommend Caxtons as a student letting agent.
