Cunningham Lettings is a family run letting agency owned and managed by husband and wife team Philip and Gaynor Cunningham. We are a vibrant and successful company formed in 2008 and we have a team of dedicated, dynamic and hardworking people who between them have experience in residential and investment sales as well as residential, student lettings and property maintenance.The majority of our portfolio is Fully Management as we believe every property should have the same attention to detail and be given equal priority which sometimes doesn’t happen on properties that are listed on a Let Only basis. Our standard charge is 10% plus VAT but we do not add a letting fee, start up fee or any other fee so that our landlords only pay us when we successfully let the property.

- A Free and honest rent appraisal
- Constructive advice regarding ways to improve the letting of the property

Our initial focus was the Student Lettings market as every member of the carefully chosen team enjoys working with the students in Nottingham. However, our landlords were always asking us if we knew a good Residential Letting Agent in Nottingham and we decided that we could be that agent transferring our knowledge and skills in the student rental property market to the residential lettings market. We have an extensive but carefully chosen portfolio of Student houses to rent / let in the most popular areas of Nottingham. We have student houses to rent / let for both the University of Nottingham and Trent University and also Sutton Bonington Campus. Our Student accommodation is currently situated across Lenton, Dunkirk, Beeston and Wollaton for Nottingham University, Jubilee Campus and Trent University. For the Veterinary campus at Sutton Bonington we have student houses to rent in the desirable village of Kegworth and in Sutton Bonington. Here demand is high and supply is low. We would welcome more student houses in the area and are sure that we can let them. All of our houses are finished to a high standard and we are extremely selective about the type of property and the landlords that we take on with houses to rent. Cunningham Lettings were proud to be one of the first student letting agents in Nottingham to achieve the Status of Full Accreditation with Unipol and we believe in their philosophy, the DASH Code, as well as decent and safe housing for students.
Gaynor Cunningham was a Consultant for Unipol in Nottingham for 12 months and therefore has a greater knowledge than many other letting agents. She is always happy to help and advise new landlords about the best ways to bring their properties not only to the expected standard but above and beyond that. This has meant that our properties have let easily in most cases and for a good weekly room rate. There is a lot of competition in all student areas of Nottingham now and there are many more student houses to let in Nottingham than there are students which is why our friendly hands on approach, along with the expertise, knowledge and customer service that is second to none for both our students and landlords is a winning combination.
The feedback that we have had from both our students and our landlords has been excellent and because we can offer great houses in good condition. Unlike some of our competitors, we do not spend the majority of our time dealing with complaints leaving us free to improve our service even further and implement new ideas which set us apart from other agents. We aim to provide our students with as much useful and helpful information as we possibly can to ensure that their time with us is pleasant and trouble free. We have a fantastic team of tradesmen working with us and again our students and our landlords have been impressed with all of the work that we have arranged and carried out at our student houses across Nottingham from putting up shelves to complete renovations. In the coming weeks we will be adding an area for feedback and we are confident that it will be very positive. If we have a problem we fix it, that is usually all anyone asks of us. It’s not really that difficult when put in to simple terms. If you have a student house in Lenton, Dunkirk, Beeston, Wollaton or City Centre and feel that like us students in Nottingham deserve to live in a decent home please feel free to contact us, we would really love to speak to you. Please feel free to call in to our office and meet the team.
We have Student Houses and Accommodation to rent in Lenton and Nottingham for both the University of Nottingham and Trent University . We also have student houses to rent in Sutton Bonington and Kegworth.
We hope that you will not be disappointed with our service but if things go wrong what should you do?
