Oligopoly

  • A portmanteau of two words: Oligarch and monopoly.
  • In relation to the housing market, arguably it is disproportionally influenced by a minority of big businesses.
  • Universities: UKC CCCU, UCA; Homestamp, letting agents and large portfolio landlords arguably have a disproportional influence on Canterbury’s student housing market.
  • Similarly UNIPOL in Leeds etc.

About the author

Bob

Formerly a student living in a rented room my vision focused on excellence. Letting phenomenal student houses soon became more than a day job - more a way of life.

Continuing to look after our tenants I subsequently also founded what is widely recognised as a phenomenal student lettings agency.
