Rent a Room in Cambridge

Renting a room in Cambridge is a cheap and convenitent option. Temporary Cambridge residents, students, or apprentices find renting a room a handy solution as room leases tend to be short term. 

If you are going to rent direct from a landlord we advise you choose a landlord who is accredited by the local council, the RLA (Residential Landlord Association) or the NLA (National Landlord Association) – ask private landlords to see their certificates or check online.

If you are going to rent a room through an agency ensure they are members of ARLA or Safeagent: this will help protect you from unscrupulous letting agencies, unsafe housing and unfair fees. ARLA and Safeagent have strict codes of conduct/practice.

Choosing the correct letting agency or landlord will ensure your tenancy runs smoothly and you are left to enjoy the property. Belvoir take great pride in managing properties professionally:

  • All properties are regularly checked for risks and undergo a fire risk assessment before being let.

  • Communal areas such as hall, stairs, landing, kitchen and bathroom are cleaned on a regular basis.
  • Most of our rooms are let on an all inclusive basis covering utility bills, wifi connection, council tax and TV connection.

  • Belvoir manage the property, carrying out routine inspections, providing an in house maintenance team and provide tenants with a point of contact for the many queries that arise from time to time.
