No 'To Let' Signs
Do you really need 'To Let' signs to advertise your accommodation?
In partnership with Merseyside Police and CitySafe, we make recommendation to all LSH accredited providers that they do not display 'To Let' signs outside of their student properties. If you own or manage rented properties in the Smithdown Road area of the student market you will be familiar with the scheme introduced locally to stop 'To Let' signs being displayed.
Whilst a large percentage of accommodation providers view this as detrimental to their marketing activities, it would be hard to disagree that the area as a whole looks and feels like a more established community without streets of advertising boards.
The endless 'To Let' signs were deemed by local policing as highlighting student properties as an easy target for burglars.
The perception of 'To Let' signs in an area are:
- They provide opportunist burglars with an easy means of identifying student accommodation.
- Numerous boards have a negative impact on the street scene.
Our 'No To Let Signs' campaign is aimed at highlighting accredited properties where the accommodation provider has guaranteed NOT to use 'To Let' signs. The property advert will include the No To Let Signs Guaranteed stamp mark, shown below.
