Why Catchment Areas are Important for Landlords and Tenants

Owning a property in a highly desired catchment area means we can find you a great tenant at a competitive price, matched with outstanding service.

An extremely important consideration for families when buying or renting a property is the catchment area. In short, catchment areas are defined boundaries whichnare associated with a school. If you buy or rent a house in one of these areas, then your children will receive priority

over other applications from people living outside the demarcations.

At the beginning of March, thousands of parents across the country found out which primary or secondary school had offered a place for their child. Many will have got a place a place at their first choice school, however others will not.

Last year, the proportion of pupils getting a place at their first choice of school across the country remained at 83.5 per cent of first choice applications resulting in an offer and 94.6 per cent of parents received an offer from one of their top three preferences. According to Schools Minister, Nick Gibb, “Since 2010, the government has created 735,000 new school places across the country. We will continue to build on this by investing £5.8billion to create even more good school places, because we are determined to give parents choice when it comes to their children’s education.”
