Superb family home close to JR Hospital, Oxford Brookes University, schools, shops and bus route 13 to the city centre.  There is a cycle route to the Science Area of Oxford University in South Parks Road, giving easy access to central Oxford and colleges by bicycle.  The house is in Band D for council tax, which is not included in the monthly rent.
 Large kitchen diner with gas hob and electric double oven, spacious living room, downstairs loo and shower, upstairs loo and bath, two doubles, one single, wooden floors and bright decor throughout.  Parking at the front of the house, garage at the side, low-maintenance gardens, enclosed rear garden, patio, summerhouse, greenhouse and bike store.  Quiet area with many young families due to primary schools nearby and convenient for the ring road for commuting by car.  The current university tenants are leaving in October or November to return to their home country.  
  The careful private landlord managing this house seeks careful tenants for ideally a 9 or 10-month tenancy agreement starting on 16th October with the option to switch to a 12-month tenancy in August 2022.  The house has hosted university staff, mature students, medical and computer-industry tenants for 18 years without any problem.
  Mature students and postgraduate students are welcome but undergraduates are excluded by the house's insurer.  Also, benefit claimants are subject to special terms (meaning higher cost) imposed by the insurer.  Pets are welcome, given that the deposit covers any damage which they might cause.  Non-smokers please.  The landlord has had enquiries from groups of three sharers but this requires a HMO licence due to Oxford City Council rules.  HMO means House of Multiple Occupation.  The house has no HMO licence because the landlord prefers to let the house to families in this quiet, family-friendly area.  Two sharers can rent the house without any problem but as soon as a 3rd person with no family connection moves in, the house becomes a HMO and there are high annual costs.  For that reason, groups of three or more sharers with no family connection cannot rent this house.
  Credit and affordability check: the total annual rent should be less than 40% of combined household income.  This means that tenants would need a total yearly income of over £46,500 in order to be approved by the credit-check company.  Past tenants have provided a guarantor or used evidence of cash savings to pass this credit check.
