INVESTMENT FOR YOUR FUTURE GENERATION.

  • This is why many parents want to buy a property for their child to live in – and as an investment for the future. But in a large unfamiliar city or town, just where do you start?

    UniCommodation is where you start. We do all the work for you, using our industry expertise and local knowledge. Here is the whole process in just five simple steps:

    Step 1

    We identify a suitable property. We use our local knowledge, liaise with the university, check the transport routes, walk the streets, check local amenities and speak to your son/daughter and other students. Only when we have found the right package do we present the property to you for approval.

    Step 2

    We help you organise the funding of the purchase, finding the optimum mortgage for you. We have a team of mortgage broker colleagues who have assisted our customers in hundreds of purchases.

    Step 3

    We acquire the property on your behalf and refurbish it to the desired and required standard, using our trusted contractors. Being professional property buyers and refurbishment specialists, we will be able to buy the property at the very best price possible and refurbish it efficiently and economically. We will maximise the rental potential of the property and ensure that the property complies with the registration requirements of the university and all statutory requirements such as Gas and Electricity Safety Certification, Fire Precautions (including furniture), Security etc.

    Step 4

    We will help your son or daughter as they move in and we’ll organise the Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreements for the other student tenants including Tenancy Deposit Schemes. We will ensure utilities are connected, everything is in order, and all health & safety requirements are both met and understood. Step 5 You will be able to go home knowing your son or daughter is in good quality, safe accommodation – and you have made a shrewd investment that will not only be valuable in the future but which will also provide you with a monthly income all the time the property is occupied.

     

    If it sounds simple… well, it is.

     

    Contact Agi Eugenio here, Managing Director, for more details.

  • "We used Agi’s services to help us locate, purchase and prepare a house for our son near his university. Agi helped us find the right property and did initial suitability checks, liaising with the council and vendors’ agent. His contacts with the mortgage provider, solicitors and builders to carry out the necessary alterations to and renovation of the property made what could have proved very daunting and time consuming a smooth process. We would probably never have undertaken this alone, particularly at a distance of 200 miles, but we now have the comfort of knowing that our son has an attractive and secure home. We would highly recommend his services."

    "It has been a great privilege to meet you. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you profusely for all your assistance in the whole process from start to finish and successfully putting Josh up the property ladder, while he continues to pursue his career. We would like to state that you are very refined in your work and would be happy to recommend you to any future openings. We are ever so grateful for your kind help and wish you every success in the future. "

    Alban and Genny

     

    "Thanks for the information and I am pleased to see you are keeping your high reputation! It appears that Josh and family have experienced the feeling I also had when the unknown is taken out of purchasing a property because of your expertise. I will confidently recomend your services at every opportunity."

    "I am 19 and a university student studying in Birmingham and I never thought purchasing my first property whilst still studying would ever be this easy without help of Agi Eugenio. Agi and his team were excellent in helping me to decide where to buy and their knowledge and expertise of the whole process was second to none. He provided a perfect service, well organised and what initially thought would be a scary and daunting process was in fact made very managable. Thank you for all your help and I thoroughly appreciate it. Would recommend to other students who are looking to purchase university accomodation to go through Agi and Northstar."

    "We have no hesitation in recommending Agi Eugenio and Northstar homes. Agi helped us through the whole process of locating properties, arranging finance, dealing with lawyers, undertaking a substantial refurbishment and successfully letting the properties we purchased. A process that could have been stressful and difficult was in fact enjoyable and straightforward. We are delighted with the end result and feel we have truly benefitted from the years of experience that Agi has in this field. Agi is exceptionally responsive and professional. He and his team have absolutely ‘delivered the goods’ and we have accomplished what we had hoped for at the beginning of the process and more."

    Julie and Neil Miron

     

    "We took the view that rather than paying out for privately rented accommodation, we would be better off getting a mortgage in our son’s name and putting him on the property ladder.

    For some students, having a mortgage is a perfect launchpad for their future. A student let can earn a lot more than a traditional rental, but now students are responsible for their own loans, they expect a lot more from the properties they live in.

    With the above views in mind we had an opportunity to meet up with Agi Eugenio of Northstar Homes and his team who provide excellent services from start to finish to make this possible.

    We had a brief meeting with Agi who explained to us the full process of acquiring a Buy-to-let Uni Mortgage and a few months down the line from our first meeting with Agi my son is on the property ladder, a Landlord. It is certainly a Degree of Sense.

    My son Joshua enjoys living in his own house instead of a privately rented accommodation and of course his fellow students renting with him comfortably make up the Mortgage. It couldn’t have been this easy without Agi and his team. Agi’s various contacts in this business for a Buy-to-let Uni Mortgage make the dealing simply easy. My son Joshua says it was like taking a walk in the park!

    Agi and his team are reliable, professional and efficient in their field and would be highly recommended to help many more young students to get on to the property ladder. "

    "This is to confirm that that my wife and I employed the services of Agi Eugenio from Northstar Homes Ltd, Laguna House, Herons Rise, New Barnet in the summer of 2012 to source a property for our son who was entering year two of his university course in Manchester.

    We found Agi’s services, professionalism and advise to be outstanding not only in terms of finding us a property but also other related financial direction he was able to afford us.

    We have no hesitation in recommending Agi’s services."

    "In my capacity as Voids and Acquisitions Manager for London Strategic Housing it is my pleasure to recommend Mr Agi Eugenio of Northstar Homes Limited to Essex University to assist in providing university students with funding to buy their own property whilst studying.

    He is well known in a professional capacity by London Strategic Housing.

    He has worked hard over the last few years to provide to us properties which have been used to house homeless families. All the properties provided to the association have been of high a quality.

    On the few occasions where we have required follow-ups, this has been carried out with the minimum of fuss and always to a high standard.

    I believe that Northstar Homes can be considered a reputable and professional company and that I am happy to recommend without reservation. "

    Jo Hagan, Voids and Acquisitions Manager

     

    "I was thinking about purchasing a Buy to Let property 6 years ago with the idea of selling them for my retirement, if need be. I was told of Agi and his company so I arranged a meeting; once he explained the proceedure and benefits, I had every confidence in him and instructed him to proceed and find me a property. Some weeks later it was all done and dusted with minimal effort on my behalf - Agi took care of everything. In summer of 2015 I asked him to find me a further two properties - which he did - and with the same exceptional service as before. Now not only can I look forward to a rosier retirement but I also receive a handsome annual income. Brilliant and thank you Agi.."

    Don & Pearl Potter

     

    "Without Agi’s assistance, I would never have got into buy-to-let, but I’m certainly very glad I did. Agi makes it extremely easy and explains things very carefully. The long term leases that are set up for you take away the problem of having to find tenants and the maintenance aspect of being a landlord is quite negligible. Anyone who gets involved with Northstar inevitably feels themselves very fortunate."

    Andrew Horn

     

    "After a five-year nightmare as a landlord in the private sector, I was hesitant to put myself in that position again. With the banks offering very poor returns on savings, a friend introduced me to Agi Eugenio of Northstar Homes. An informative meeting with Agi, easily persuaded me to invest in property once more and I subsequently purchased two homes in the inner-London area. With Agi's smooth guidance, these transactions have proved trouble-free and I now enjoy the benefits of regular, secure return on my investments. I do not believe that I could have achieved this level of reward without the assuring expertise of Northstar Homes."

    Brian Willoughby

     

    "About three years ago we read a news article about Bath Building Society's Student Mortgage scheme - a 100% interest-only mortgage aimed specifically at students who would cover repayments by letting rooms to their fellow undergraduates. With our eldest child about to go to London and facing rent of over £500 a month in any case, it seemed like a no-brainer (and so it has proved!) Our difficulty was that we live in Devon - how on earth were we supposed to source a house in London? Enter Agi and Northstar, mentioned in the same article as a company that do the searching for you and, as it turned out, infinitely more than that, all on a no purchase-no fee understanding.

    We travelled to London one day and met Agi and were instantly convinced. Sure, Northstar is a multi-faceted business, but you would be hard pushed to find a business so ethical - Agi is so straight, so genuine, and from the first minute it was clear that his job satisfaction derives 100% from the sheer pleasure he gets from helping people in solid, life-determining ways. What other means is there for a 19-year-old to become a house owner? Our journey to get our son onto the property ladder was still not easy - when is buying a house easy? - and Bath's restrictions limited us to the very cheapest areas.

    The procedure was that Agi would source ten possibilities and every few weeks we would travel down and see all ten in a day, but after the first of these days we made an offer and here is another reason for using North Star - it immediately became clear that with Agi's connections, experience in the market and personal skills,  we were saving far more by using Northstar than the cost of their fee! There were stressful moments, but at every step Agi's wise and soothing voice was instantly and always there.

    Our son is now a 20-year-old house owner in London and we are so glad we persevered. I can get quite emotional singing Agi and Northstar's praises, there simply aren't enough superlatives. To anyone contemplating using Northstar - and they do operate all over the UK - I can only say do not hesitate. There is not a sliver of a reason to doubt their value."

    Adrian Abbotts

     

    "On being introduced to Agi some twelve years ago, I was first struck by how softly he spoke – a little strange for someone in the hard and fast property business. I soon came to realises this was just Agi – a truly professional businessman, who has a genuine desire to help his clients benefit from his years of experience of buy-to-let market place. Over the past twelve years I have bought a few properties via Agi’s service, as well as introduced him to friends and family who have expressed a desire to enter this market. The property market can be a daunting place, especially as the figures involved are often frightening. There are no sure bets with any investment, however my advice to anyone looking for a long term investment opportunity would be, ‘employ the services of a subject matter expert’, and as far as I’m concerned Agi is one of the best in this particular field."

    "Agi always gives an excellent hand holding service. I would highly recommend to any prospective clients. No questions are ever too difficult to answer and always available to help."

    “I first started working with Northstar some 10 years ago and with their help I have built a modest but very successful property portfolio. Agi Eugenio, who heads Northstar, provides a very personal service, offering valuable, straightforward and expert advice. Once you start working with Northstar they provide a continuous friendly and supportive service to help you learn and develop your property investments. This is invaluable, comes at no cost and creates a strong working partnership. This type of honest and mutually beneficial approach is quite rare in our business environment and I cannot recommend Northstar enough to potential and future investors”

    Leslie from Suffolk.

     

    “First class service and delivery from the very first moment until completion of the project. I feel really fortunate to have worked with Agi. I'm happy to recommend him to others and would definitely use his services again.”
