Advertise Property in Birmingham

Studentpad and Aston Students' Union offer agents/landlords the quickest and most cost effective method of advertising their property(ies) for let in and around Birmingham. Studentpad helps around 1 million students search for accommodation each year. Take the first step to finding your new tenants today.

Electrical Inspection
To accompany your advert the ARC asks landlords to provide proof that the house is covered by an electric periodic inspection report issued by an approved body. Approved bodies currently include:

BRE Certification Limited
British Standards Institution
ELECSA Limited, part of FENSA and BBA
NICEIC Certification Services Limited
Zurich Certification Ltd

Reports must contain a schedule of test results with nothing coded 1 or 2 in the observations and recommendations box. The normal length of a certificate for a student house is 3-5 years. Completion certificates are not usually accepted as they rarely include a full schedule of test results. Visual inspections are not accepted. You also have a responsibility to ensure any electrical equipment supplied in the accommodation is safe to use
