Full Description

Join the UK’S Number 1 Specialist Student Letting Franchise!

A Nicholas Humphreys franchise includes five franchises for the price of one: specialist student lettings, professional lettings, property management and investment & residential sales. We are a dynamic and reputable company that differs from the current traditional letting agents by bringing a new style and fresh approach to fully explore the lucrative student letting business.

The brand is innovative with large investment in marketing to fully develop the Specialist Student Letting side of our franchising, which achieves on average 2.5 times the income than that of typical Professional lettings.

We provide the complete start up package for your franchise including a bespoke four week training programme. The initial fee also includes an unrivalled in-field launch and support via our dedicated team of industry professionals for an additional eight week period, all of whom are proven in launching new businesses, allowing you to work alongside the very best in the sector, giving you the best possible start to the launch of your business.

  • No need for a shop front – We are proven at launching successful lucrative in-field franchise businesses, keeping running costs to a minimum.
  • Unrivalled pre-launch and launch support – 12 week period helping business generate. Our support continues on a month by month basis outside of your launch period.
  • Paid weekly – Our accounts team will pay you and your landlords weekly, ensuring that your cash flow is a priority and that you are not bogged down with paperwork.

We invest all of the initial franchise fee into the pre-launch and launch of your franchise. This means we have to ensure that you have a successful and profitable business from the initial launch period through to your life with us as a franchisee.
Nicholas Humphreys have developed a bespoke Specialist Student Lettings brand and franchise proposition which differentiates us from other letting agents. Student Lettings can provide up to 2.5 times the fee income when compared to a typical Professional Letting Agency. Student properties are let in advance of the next academic year, creating a secured cash flow for your business allowing you to plan cash flow and future investment and recruitment.

Student Letting franchises have the advantage of being both very lucrative and quicker and easier to launch.
