Private landlords who rent out student accommodation in Brighton and the surrounding area have been asked to be patient in light of the latest delay in university-goers receiving government loans.

Some property professionals have not yet received rent payments due to the hold-up in payments being dished out by the Student Loans Company, reports the Argus.

With a number of University of Brighton students left short of cash, the institution has written to local landlords to request that they show an understanding of the current situation.

As they wait for their money to come through, young people have been seeking hardship loans from their education provider.

A spokesman for the University of Brighton told the newspaper: "The situation is a lot worse than in previous years. There has been a significant increase in the number of students applying for loans."

The University of Brighton was ranked 70th in the Times' Good University Guide 2010, while the nearby University of Sussex came in at number 35.
