SPACE - Student Lets in Reading, Berkshire

Space Lettings very quickly established itself as the leading student letting agency in Reading, housing over 750 Reading University Students each year; no mean feat.

At Space Lettings we have specialised in the Student Lettings market since 2006 when our founding Directors purchased the first property of their current portfolio of high quality student homes. This created the beginning of Space Lettings.

Following this we now handle one of the largest selections of student properties in the area for numerous landlords, which enable us to offer properties to suit all budgets and tastes, ranging from Two bedroom through to Ten bedroom homes.

We usually start the season from the first enquiries, beginning at the end of November, at which point we normally have just over 400 properties available to choose from.

Over the years we have gained an enviable position within the student lettings industry through a solid business base, offering transparency, a high level of first class customer service and a genuine “down to earth” approach with honesty and integrity from all our staff. We always go that extra mile, taking the time to ensure that everyone understands at every stage what is required of them and just what their obligations are.

Our team are all local and offer a combined property experience of over 35 years, providing a highly skilled foundation to the business with a vast and varied knowledge of local property. We did not just ‘wake up one morning and decide to open a business’, with no skills or experience, as many do today.

We aim to offer a comprehensive, high quality service, knowing that the students of today are the professionals of tomorrow, with many securing employment with one of the numerous blue chip companies within the area.
