The Sulets service is the marketing, letting and management of accommodation for students studying at University of Leicester and De Montfort University. To deliver that service we have a team of committed professionals who have the skills, knowledge and expertise required to ensure our tenants and landlords are well looked after.

Our Property Management team keeps landlords up to date with relevant legislation and ensures standards of safety, security and cleanliness are met. Our negotiators provide our student tenants with appropriate accommodation options and give them the chance to ask questions and check details in a non-pressurised way, with honesty and clarity.
