Pickard Properties has had a very strong relationship with Unipol ever since they were originally founded by the Higher Educational Institutions in Leeds. We are also original members of the Unipol Code of Standards (now Gold) for Private Sector Landlords. This has included sitting on the Unipol Code of Standards Tribunal, the Landlords Consultative Group, and working with them on many other projects regarding the provision of student housing and the maintenance of high standards throughout the sector.
We have also worked in close partnership with Unipol and the universities regarding the development of new purpose built student accommodation and now own several modern halls of residence including both the Carlton Hill and Mill Street residences. These are run by Unipol/university within their portfolio, consist of over 660 bedrooms, and are very popular within the Leeds student Community.
Cooperation is also taking place over new initiatives which are evolving such as the proposed Rate Your Landlord Scheme and other areas across the Student Accommodation Sector as Further Education continues to develop.
Pickard Properties have a longstanding and substantial portfolio of commercial freehold investments throughout the UK which are ideal for use by organisations in the retail, industrial and leisure sectors. We currently provide commercial lets to blue chip, high street giants, Asda Walmart, WHSmith, Argos, Superdrug, Wilkinson, Lloyds and Barclays banks and many more.
