What happens if things go wrong? Unipads have the answers.


More often than not, when prospective student tenants from the University of Birmingham are looking for a house in Selly Oak for the next year, they do not really think about problems that might occur in the house.


What happens if the shower stops working or if a radiator starts to leak ?


We, at Unipads, are aware of the importance of providing a speedy response to this type of problem and we are very proud of our record on this subject. Our trusted maintenance team are usually in the Selly Oak student area and deal with most issues within 24 hours.


Our suggestion to you when viewing a property is "speak to the current tenants". They will tell you about our record on the subject. Hopefully there won't have been any problems, but if there have been any, we like to think that the issue was corrected swiftly.


This should give you the confidence to know that a Unipads house is a safe house and that everything works properly.


This has been the theme suggested by Birmingham University on the subject of student housing in Selly Oak every year that we can remember. For those students looking for accommodation for next year they tell you not to rush, indeed in many cases they say "leave it until the New Year".


One short story tells the tale of one girl who adhered to Birmingham University's advice not to rush when she was looking for a student house in Selly Oak.


On the first day back at Uni in January she went into one of the local estate agents and all she wanted was a 5 bed house but the minimum criteria was that the house had to have 2 bathrooms.


When I saw her she was sitting there in tears having been told that all the 5 bed 2 bathroom houses had gone before Christmas. I asked her why she had left it so late to look and she told me the housing department had told her so.


The bottom line is this: if you are looking for student accommodation in Selly Oak for next year follow the 3 point plan. 1. discuss with your friends how many people you want to live with. 2. set your upper budget for price. 3. check out our Unipads website for houses of your chosen size and price and select up to a maximum of 5 to view.


We will then show you our superb houses, all in Selly Oak, and you can select the one that you like the best.


You do not have to take our word for it but please believe us when we tell you that THE BEST HOUSES ALWAYS GO FIRST".
