We are delighted to apply and be in the process of being awarded the SASSH Accreditation.
This scheme has been set up for private rented accommodation for student housing in Southampton, which has benefits for both landlords and students.
The scheme which is run in partnership with the University of Southampton, Southampton Solent University and Southampton City Council and of course private landlords such as Urba Life.
The purpose of the scheme is to ensure students are offered quality, safe and mindfully equipped accommodation that is also well managed.
The key elements of the accreditation aims for the following:
1. Promote a high quality Code of Practice for student accommodation.
2. To make sure Southampton Student Accommodation is offered in a safe and secure condition, in good repair and according to an agreed standard of management.
3. To encourage good tenancy relations between landlords and tenants.
5. To give recognition to landlords who operate within the voluntary accreditation scheme – such as Urba Life.
The Scheme is a positive move for all students coming to Southampton and at Urba Life we are proud to be part of it.
