Student Lettings in Hove. Hove is a beautiful seaside town just a stone’s throw from Brighton, making it a popular choice for students looking for a vibrant and exciting place to live. With its stunning beaches, trendy cafes, and lively bars, Hove offers the perfect blend of city life and seaside charm.

What to Consider When Choosing Student Lettings in Hove

  • Budget: Hove can be a bit more expensive than Brighton, so it’s important to set a realistic budget before you start your search.
  • Location: Think about how close you want to be to the beach, the university, and the city centre. Hove is quite walkable, so you don’t necessarily need to be right in the heart of the action.
  • Type of accommodation: There are a variety of student accommodation options available in Hove, from shared houses and flats to purpose-built student halls.
  • Bills: Some student lets include bills in the rent, while others don’t. Be sure to factor in the cost of bills when you’re budgeting.

Have been very accommodating and helpful when calling agents. They have been very helpful in being able to secure a house for students.

Harringtons have been incredibly helpful and supportive of us as new renters and they have been super efficient in getting all of the documents sent through and signed in such a short period of time. Thank you!

we chose this letting agents as they chose a good bills company that is much cheaper than other agents. When viewing houses the staff were very friendly and have been very helpful in answering our questions and making the process as easy as possible.

Although I have only been renting with Harringtons for a short period of time, I have had nothing but a positive experience. From viewing to admin updates. The admin team especially are very polite and quick to respond and I have no doubt that the rest of my tenancy will run smoothly. I would recommend to anyone considering renting in brighton.

Professional communication with tenant although entirely impersonal. There was a bigger disconnect in their communication with the landlord in most cases, which seemed to be either slow or non-existent (discovered after contacting the landlord directly).Property was full of spider webs on day 1 despite apparently being professionally cleaned. Took a day off of work to clean it on move out day, leaving it cleaner than when it received but still had to pay part of the deposit for professional cleaning.It has been a while since I have rented, but I'll avoid letting agencies completely now if this is anything close to the average renting experience.

I have rented with Harringtons Lettings before and have always found the agents to be quick, efficient, friendly and helpful. I loved their service so much I have chosen to rent with Harringtons again. Faultless 😊
