What to think about when renting

There's a lot to consider when searching for a rental property — particularly if you’re looking for the first time. Aside from the location and space itself, it's important to find a reliable landlord or property manager who will make sure your tenancy is smooth and comfortable throughout your stay. 

As well as budget and affordability, you’ll also need to think about things like security deposits, non-refundable fees, amenities, parking, pet policies and the small print of your lease terms.  

That's where property management services like Seekers can help. We’ll prepare the stressful stuff like lease agreements on behalf of the landlord so you have the confidence of dealing with regulated professionals.

Why choose Seekers?

We pride ourselves on being great communicators, which means you’ll be able to reach us as and when you need to, and you’ll be assigned a dedicated agent to help you every step of the way. On top of that, you can expect:

Variety of properties on offer

Whether you’re looking for your first solo home or want to enjoy living with lots of housemates, we have a host of different properties to choose from. 

We’ve got everything from one-bed flats to nine-bedroom house shares across some of the most popular locations in Newcastle. Will it be somewhere in the city centre or on the vibrant Quayside? Explore our properties in Jesmond, student accommodation in Sandyford, and student houses Spital Tongues, to mention just a few. 

Bills packages

Simplify your tenancy with our all-in-one Bills Package. We’ll handle utilities – from gas and electricity to water, internet, and TV licence – so you can just focus on navigating one hassle-free monthly payment. 

What’s more, energy use is monitored within a reasonable allowance, and we’ll set the internet up ready for when you move in. 

Fast sign-up and online viewings

It’s now easier than ever to get your student accommodation sorted with our quick online sign-up service and virtual viewing options. In just a few clicks, you can tell us what you’re looking for. We advise getting in touch with us between October and December to secure your student property in time for the following academic year.

Can’t make it to a viewing in person? No problem — we can make sure you have all the details you need via a video tour. We want both international students and UK students to have the chance to find the ideal home.

Transparent rental agreements

Seekers is backed by memberships in Propertymark and The Property Ombudsman (TPO), signifying our commitment to your safety and satisfaction. And right from the start, we embrace transparency, making our fees upfront and accessible. No hidden tricks — you can find our fees openly listed on our website, eliminating any fine print surprises. 

Swift maintenance responses

We recognise that student accommodation has a reputation for its fair share of horror stories, including unresponsive landlords and faulty amenities. 

That’s why we have an easy-to-use online portal for all our tenants. Here, you can submit your maintenance requests, and we’ll deal with the issue quickly and efficiently.

Support for international students

Starting university or moving to a new city can be daunting — even more so when you’ve moved countries. Our bilingual experts are on hand to help international students feel at home. Whether you need a late-night pick-up from the airport or a short-term serviced apartment while you find somewhere more permanent, we can help. 

Property rental services tailored to you

Newcastle is a wonderful place to live but finding a rental property anywhere can feel daunting — especially when you’re starting university. The Seekers team is here to make the process of renting student accommodation as smooth and safe as possible. Our flexible landlord services allow you to focus on the good stuff — like settling into the city and making friends.
