What some former and current tenants have to say about Prospect Property:
Living at 9 Lawrence Street for the last 2 years has been a genuinely great experience due in no small part to the reliable, friendly and fair nature of both Paula and Andy.
Whenever my fellow housemates or I needed anything both Andy and Paula were quick to respond and the service which they provided us helped make 9 Lawrence Street feel like home.
I would definitely recommend Prospect Property to any students wishing to find accommodation in York.

I’ve been fortunate to live in a “Prospect Property” house for my final 2 years at York Uni (15 Heslington Road, 2003-2005). The standard of accommodation has been excellent and Andy (the landlord) compares very well with other landlords in the area that my friends have had! He is always helpful and manages to get people around to fix any problems (of which we have had few) very quickly and with minimum disruption. I would recommend Andy to anybody looking for a house in York.
You should advertise your best points- we were really pleased to have a gardening service included in our rent but didn’t know until they arrived!

My time at Hull Road was an enjoyable one and it was made all the better knowing that I had a reliable landlord who would quickly and efficiently solve any problems that occurred during my stay.
Just want to say a massive thanks to how helpful Andy, Paula and John have been throughout the year! Considering we have had two lads drop out it’s been an enjoyable year in a great student house! Once again thanks for everything this past year we are extremely impressed with the way you have handle everything. 80 Lowther Street, 2013- 2014

We lived at Lawrence street for two years from 2018 to 2020. Andy was always able to help and make things as easy as possible for us. Whenever anything was broken it would be repaired or replaced immediately. We cannot fault Andy as a landlord. I personally have loved living in the house due to the location, the house itself and Andy as the landlord.

All six of us have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 1 Brownlow Street. The house itself is in immaculate condition; Andy had it professionally cleaned and redecorated before we moved in. The downstairs is spacious, and the sofas are incredibly comfy-perfect for movie marathons when procrastinating doing Uni work! Andy is an extremely reliable landlord, any issues we have had with the house we’ve contacted Andy and he has responded on the same day with a plan in place to ensure the problem is sorted as soon as possible. Andy is also extremely accommodating; fixing us up with new beds and wardrobes in our times of need. His colleague Paula is always on hand and easy to contact about any questions or issues we may have. The handyman Brian is brilliant, he’s always very friendly and sorted any job we’ve thrown at him! Overall we couldn’t have picked a better house to spend our last year at University in, it’s just a shame we didn’t have it for all 3 years!

Overall the standard of accommodation is fantastic with the landlord being amazing. Mervyn (maintenance man) has been a Godsend and is always there if we need him (even at 8pm on Sunday evening)! Thanks for two great years!
The girls at 1 Brownlow Street
Brownlow Street was such a brilliant house. The quality alongside the location to YSJ was amazing, in fact everything was so amazing we stayed on another year! Another reason behind us staying was Andy and Paula. They were brilliant in looking after us, if anything was wrong with the house, or we needed some advice they were always there for us, we never went without for long! The house at Brownlow really became our home for 2 years, not just somewhere to rent, but somewhere to be happy and that was thanks to Andy, Paula and the team. All 6 of us agree that if we could move anywhere again it would be number 1 Brownlow Street.
We first moved in to number 15 Heslington Road and then when it was going to be sold we wanted to stay with Andy as our landlord so we moved into number 51 for our final year!
Over the past two years “Better Student Homes” has been speedy and friendly (i.e we reported our kettle broken and got a new one the same evening)!
We would highly recommend renting from them if you ant an honest, great landlord and a great house to boot!
