It is "crucial"that property owners know their landlord responsibilities and tenants follow their side of the bargain if a student tenancy agreement is to be successful.

That is the view of Cosima Sempill, who used to live in a house owned by her parents when she was at university.

Ms Sempill told the Times that there were a few issues that needed to be arranged to ensure the landlord tenancy relationship works.

"It can be tricky sometimes, especially as you are responsible for repairs and the buck stops with you in terms of paying bills,"she explained. "It was really just a question of implementing a few ground rules."

Everyone needs to know what they are responsible for if a rental agreement is going to work, she added.

Many students will be looking to move into their first rental property in the coming months as their first year at university comes to an end.
