In another piece in the Portsmouth News it was reported that applications from EU students at the University of Portsmouth are down by 50% - if this translates into student numbers it will hit private landlords particularly hard as many EU students choose to live in the private sector.
Due to the vast numbers of students who have decided to live at home while learning is remote, or have chosen to defer their studies, the impact on the student rental market has been severe and felt most keenly by private landlords, rather than universities or colleges.
New analysis from letting experts, Goodlord, has revealed that, during 2020, revenues from student lets dropped by 30% compared to figures from 2018 and 2019.
