70% of students think that bills inclusive rents are important
AFS Team·25 April 2013·3 min read
Feedback is that landlords are often deterred from offering bills-included because of the hassle of monitoring usage, the fear that students will overuse and leave a high bill once they have vacated the property and the endless stream of time consuming administrative tasks required on top of an already busy schedule.
That’s why AFS have recently teamed up with Glide, a serviced utilities provider specifically catering for the student accommodation market to help make it easier for landlords to offer this service and attract more tenants. Glide supplies one simple itemised bill for all services across an entire property portfolio. This enables property businesses to offer bills included in the rent price of their properties with minimal administration and fixed tariffs to control costs, making it easier to offer bills-inclusive rents. Landlords also have access to an online portal to manage their bills and monitor the usage of all tenant households.
If you’re interested in letting Glide help you offer bills-included rent to your tenants simply log onto your AFS landlord account, click the ‘Offer bills inclusive rents’ option, submit your interest and we’ll contact you with more information. Alternatively, email your details to [email protected]
