Ontario Landlords Association Members – Find Student Tenants By Advertising on the University of Toronto Housing Services Portal for a Discounted Member Price !
The University of Toronto is a world famous university with lots of international students.
We were fortunate to have Jennifer Radley, the manager of Housing Services for the University of Toronto, provide important tips and advice on how you can become a successful student landlord.
It was very helpful news for Ontario Landlords and must-see reading for anyone interested in renting to students.
You can read the article here: Top Tips for Renting to Students in Ontario.
Lots of Positive Feedback
We had a great amount of positive feedback after we posted the student landlord tips Jennifer provided.
A Toronto landlord wrote in:
“Read the OLA post with all the tips…thanks, it was helpful and I learned from it… Give Jennifer my thanks!”
There was a thankful email from an Ottawa landlord who feels more confident now:
“I’ve been thinking of becoming a landlord for the past few years but haven’t pulled the trigger because of all the ‘Tenant From Hell’ stories.
I’m now more confident and will focus on renting to student tenants in Ottawa.”
We even had an Alberta Landlord email us this message:
“Good advice wherever you are. Make sure students know you are better than the rest and you care about them.”
