Apartments to rent in Leicester with a private landlord


If you’re in a big city looking for a private landlord Leicester, like many other UK towns and cities, has lots to choose from. But if you’re new to the area or even new to renting, it can be hard to know where to start and how to weed out the good from the bad.

When searching through apartments to rent in Leicester with a private landlord, it pays to do your research beforehand.

As well as checking out the property itself and the local area, find out what people had to say about renting with that landlord in particular. Another good indicator of the standards you’ll receive is the state that the property is in.

If a private landlord doesn’t take good care of a property, you can pretty much guarantee that you won’t be their number one priority when something goes wrong and that’s the last thing you need.

At the Queen Street Apartments, there’s good reason why our studio flats, one bedroom flats, two bedroom and galleried apartments are so popular with young professionals, key workers, medical students and postgraduates looking for smart, upmarket rental accommodation within Leicester.

Our beautifully decorated furnished and unfurnished apartments are located within the Central Arts and Cultural Quarter of the city centre and combine modern luxury with Victorian heritage, having sprung from the sympathetic conversion of a former 19th century knitwear factory to create a unique living space.

The benefits of renting from a private landlord

We believe that when you find the right property, the benefits of renting from a private landlord are many.

Just one example is the personal touch that you’ll receive and the opportunity to ask the landlord questions directly.

When you’re on the hunt for a decent property the chance to find out all about it means you’ll have every likelihood of finding the home you’re looking for.

There’s no feeling like you’re just another number to add to the list either. Some people feel like they’re on a production line when going through a letting agent and this means more chance of being hurried into signing up for a place that just isn’t you.

The benefits of finding apartments to rent in Leicester with a private landlord can also include the following:

Cheaper rental prices – as there is no letting agent fee

No middle man – because you’ll have direct contact with the person you’ll be renting from

Move in more quickly with less hoops to jump through

Negotiate a flexible tenancy length

Deal directly with your landlord on an ongoing basis

Greater care taken to ensure your home meets your needs

No additional fees such as administration fees, credit check or reference fees that you might pay with a letting agent.

Renting privately gives you every chance of finding the place that you could be calling home and the space that’s right for you, quicker and with a lot less stress.
