About Us

We are Paul and Jill – a husband and wife team based locally. Paul was born in Northampton and is a member of the National Landlord Association (NLA) as well as being a DASH Accredited Landlord.

We established Academic Properties in 1996 to provide affordable and good quality student accommodation to The University of Northampton.

We don’t use agents as we prefer to deal directly with all our tenants in a friendly and professional manner.

Since we started we have let exclusively to students so have built up a wealth of experience in this sector.

We specialise in smaller properties giving a comfortable homely feel. Our properties are either 3 or 4 bedroom Victorian terraced houses with character which have been modernised and are tastefully decorated, well presented and fully furnished. Many of our tenants choose to stay with us for more than one year.

Safety of our tenants is important to us. We safety test gas and electrical appliances every year and have undertaken Fire Safety Audits in conjunction with the Fire and Rescue Service. All properties have appropriate fire doors, interlinked smoke/heat alarms and electrical installations that meet inspection standards – for example, RCD protection to all circuits.

We deal with repairs or concerns promptly and always treat our tenants honestly and fairly.

Absolutely amazing landlords! – always there when you need them! Even willing to go that extra mile by helping with issues such as light bulb changes, which no other landlord would!  Not only great landlords but lovely people too!”

"Any problems with the property were dealt with instantly, and any communication from them was clear and easy to understand. Good rates for the rooms too! Made the past year a lot easier to cope with knowing that the landlords were easy to talk to and provided a fantastic service"
