professional house share leeds

Pickard Properties' portfolio of Leeds professional lets consists of one, two, and three-bedroomed apartments and flats for rent in Leeds. Our house shares for professionals in Leeds are based in Headingley, Horsforth and Burley, which are all conveniently located near to public transport links for a simple commute to work. We also offer professional houseshare properties in Halifax, Brighouse and Huddersfield — all of which provide a lovely home with a slightly longer but equally easy commute to Leeds city centre.

If you have recently moved to Leeds or have left university and are now working in Leeds, we can help you find the perfect professional house share to relax and unwind in after a busy day at work or an evening of socialising with friends.

We specialise in matching young professionals with private rented houses or professional flats shares in Leeds and beyond.

Embrace the cost-saving benefits of a cosy and modern room to rent in Leeds, sharing with other similar-minded young professionals in Leeds, Halifax, or Brighouse.

We own all our own properties and maintain them all to a high standard. We are landlords rather than “middle men” and you can deal with us directly to organise your move and make arrangements quickly, efficiently and hassle-free.

We can move you into a property on the same day if all checks are passed and your funds are in place. Easy!

Properties for house share professionals: Leeds lettings process

Step 1: Looking for a houseshare in Leeds

You can view our Leeds professional house shares online 24/7. Register your details with us and we will let you know when your perfect property for rent in Leeds becomes available. You can message us online or call our office on 0113 274 6642 to discuss your requirements.

Step 2: Seen a property you like?

The next step is to contact us to arrange a viewing of the houseshare. We are flexible regarding viewing times and will always try to accommodate you — after all, we know professionals will often be at work during the usual office hours.

Step 3: You’ve found your perfect house share in Leeds

If you would like to apply for one of our properties for house share professionals, you can sign up in the office and complete a details / application form.  Once we have received your application together with your non-refundable application fee of £35 and your agreed security deposit, the property is reserved for you.

We can take payments by direct debit, by credit or debit card, or online, so you can choose the most convenient method for your needs. Details of our property letting fees.

The credit check will tell us if you have a bad credit history, any CCJs or bankruptcy, and whether you will be able to afford the rent, based on your income. It may be that you will need a guarantor to act for you or it may be that you will have to pay for your rent in advance for the full period of tenancy if your credit is not good.

We will also carry out a ‘right to rent’ check and will require details from your passport ID for this.

Before moving into a professional house share property in Leeds, payment of the first month’s rent and a deposit must be made by credit or debit card or via our online payments system. Keys can be issued when this payment has been received. 

The signing of your tenancy agreement, Tenancy Deposit Scheme paperwork, and direct debit form — and the handover of keys — will take place at the Pickard Properties office in Headingley.

Step 4: Welcome to your new house share!

Leeds-based Pickard Properties therefore gives you a seven-day reporting window to let us know of any issues. We will then quickly arrange the required maintenance and repairs, and you can relax knowing that that it’s being sorted you won’t be held responsible when it comes to check out at the end of your tenancy.
