Castle Homes (Student Accommodation Hull) is a family run business, providing high quality accommodation and service for over 23 years. We currently own over 150 lets in Hull and are expanding year by year.
Over the last 23 years Castle Homes (Student Accommodation Hull) has owned a vast array of properties including family homes, student accommodation, HMO’s, flats, bedsits and hotels allowing us to gain experience in providing the best service possible to meet the needs of our tenants.
I, Peter Chaplin (Founder) was born in Hull and began my professional career as an accountant working in London. After 5 years in London I moved back to Hull to start a family. I used the money earned in London to buy 4 properties and set up Castle Homes. Over the years Castle Homes (Student Accommodation Hull) grew and so did my family. In 2002, Ross, one of my three children, began studying a business degree at the University of Leeds.
It was at this point that Ross and I saw a gap in the market for high quality student accommodation. I visited Ross in Leeds and was appalled by the poor quality housing available. Landlords seemed to let their houses get to a very poor state but because of the popularity of Leeds as a city and a University, they could still charge extortionate rents.
After graduating from University and returning to Hull, Ross decided to investigate the standard of the student accommodation in Hull and it became apparent that like Leeds, Hull students also had to put up with a lack of choice and poor standard accommodation.
Ross and I then began expanding Castle Homes into the student lettings market in 2010 by purchasing and renovating a number of houses in the student area, to a high standard. On completion of these houses we were told by a number of other agents that they were some of the BEST STUDENT HOUSES THEY HAD EVER SEEN! But just because the houses are of a high standard this does not reflect in the price, all properties are affordable and average price in the Hull student rental market.
None of the properties are further than a mile away from the University and they all come with the private attention of our team. We have a fully qualified in house maintenance team who are available 24 hours a day including our Gas Cert registered plumber and NICEIC registered electrician.
Castle Homes (Student Accommodation Hull) is also a member of the Hull Landlords Association and ‘The Scheme,’ all members of which adhere to a strict code of conduct which covers both property standards and management procedure.
Overall our aim at Castle Homes is to raise the standard of the rental housing market in Hull especially in the student rental market. I didn’t like seeing my children having to live in poor accommodation while at University and I’m sure you don’t want to either so rent with Castle Homes for high quality and a personal service which is second to none
