In this weeks update i have decided that my findings need editing as there are more universities in Leeds and Liverpool than i initially thought.
I discovered that leeds are a part of the Acredditation Network UK. This company has 4 core principles for landlords to sign which is voluntary, but it seems like part of a process that encourages them to maintain the high standards of the accomodation that they have.
Leeds is one of the universities that works in conjunction with AFS unipol code. When properties display this code it means that the property has been physically inspected by trained property assessor.
From feedback that Helene received from student the option to pay more to have a propery inspected was more popular than just having cheap accomodation with no checks being ran on the property.
