Managing any property can be a thankless task, with maintenance and upkeep to stay on top of, tenants to please and viewings to coordinate. At Varcity Living we take away this hassle, giving you more time to do the things that are most important to you. Our dedicated professional property management team have extensive experience managing a diverse range of Bangor accommodation. This means you can be confident that things are being done right the first time, every time.
At Varcity Living we have been managing and letting both residential and student housing for over a decade and have grown rapidly, thanks to our customer-focused approach and desire for quality. We now manage over 900 bedrooms across over 300 homes and are one of Bangor’s most trusted and established student lettings agencies, continuing to grow and provide both our landlords and our tenants with first-class service. Our second to none know-how means we can maximise the profitability of your property whilst at the same time minimising your operational costs and involvement.
Our Rent Smart Wales trained and registered staff provide all our landlords with a regulated service. They can help to streamline your lettings process, with Varcity Living as a whole affiliated with accredited bodies such as NALS, UNIPOL, SAFEagent, PRS and DPS.
No one knows the lettings market in Bangor like we do; we are the go-to agency for student lettings and a highly trusted agency for residential property too.
We manage a range of PBSA across the city, including studio accommodation blocks and modern apartment blocks with all the mod-cons. This PBSA varies in size and style, as well as what level of service we supply and what maintenance we have conducted on the property. Our accommodation block page highlights just a small selection of the larger properties we manage, many of which we have transformed into stylish accommodation for our student tenants.

We know that every landlord has different wants and needs from their property; our team is on hand to tailor an arrangement that suits you.
If you’re not happy with your current agency and want Varcity to take over we will organise everything for you and all without a fee.
Our online Landlord Dashboard allows you to manage your account from afar; whether it’s checking statements, checking-up on maintenance procedures or viewing property details. If you already have access to the Landlord Dashboard and need some more guidance to the information found in there, then please refer to our guide to the Landlord Dashboard. If you do not yet have an account please get in touch with a member of our team.
Our own in-house maintenance team work tirelessly to preserve your property and we work with vetted and qualified contractors to guarantee premium service on all upkeep and renovation works.
In an incredibly high-tech and connected world we offer a wide range of online services geared to making the letting and renting experience easier and more streamlined for everyone involved. Our landlords benefit from our Landlord Dashboard, and our tenants benefit from our Video Tours and Virtual Viewings, both of which maximise the appeal of your property and mean any prospective tenant is able to gain valuable insight into your property 24/7. Our tenants are also easily able to report maintenance issues online, meaning these are dealt with swiftly and effectively by our team with minimal amounts of call outs. In addition, all tenants can make any payments online, meaning distance and time are no obstacle. We believe online benefits such as these will ensure your property is let year after year.
We have considerable experience dealing with the regulations for Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMO) and our team can complete the complicated paperwork effortlessly on your behalf.
Our staff are fully trained and registered; saving you the cost and hassle of having to do this all yourself. We are also an accredited member of the government backed NALS, DPS, PRS and SAFEagent schemes.
When you choose us to manage your property, we first create a detailed property appraisal (this will be individual to each property if you are looking for us to manage a portfolio) and asset management plan. We can then provide you with proposed rental guarantees and fees. We will also introduce you to our local property portfolio, so you can be fully comfortable with the high standards we expect and maintain. Once you are happy with this, we will provide a contract that confirms what we will do and when and, most importantly, what you can expect in rental return.
Management fees are normally based around 10 – 15% of gross rental income, however this is dependent on the condition of the property and the work required to maintain or renovate it. Varcity’s property management team also offer discounted packages for management of a portfolio of multiple properties. See our price list here.
We know that every property is different and it’s important that the things that matter most to you as a landlord are covered by your letting agency. That’s why at Varcity Living we provide bespoke assistance in tailoring an arrangement that suits you, such as including all-inclusive bills options for your properties. If there are specific matters you would like to discuss regarding your property, please do not hesitate to get in contact with a member of our team; we are sure we can accommodate any requests you may have.
