Student Rental Property Management

We have been the leading student rental property management company since 1966. With our offices based on the corner of Riccarton and Clyde Roads we are exceptionally accessible for any Student or potential student of Canterbury University. On behalf of our rental property owners we have noticed consistent trends of potential tenants. It is important to advertise your property at the right time of year to benefit for the following student year. We have an after hours number and a property manager always on duty to cater for any possibility that may arise.

We have many clients based permanently overseas – like the rest of our clients they are guaranteed peace of mind with our highly experienced and trained property management team. From a specialised tenant selection to in-going condition reports, bond inspections to after hours work and a 24/7 emergency line for tenants our property management team does it all.

Let us know if we can help you!

Our Tenant Reviews 2018

“The agency was way more engaging than any other during the flat hunting process and didn’t make you feel like a number on a spreadsheet. Special thanks to Sarah Adams, with an A-type personality and a sense of humour, what more could you ask from a property manager.”

“We have just been renting through WKB for 2years. Sarah Adams was so easy to contact and talk to if we ever ran into any maintenance issues. Would absolutely love to rent through her (and team) again”

“WKB are absolute legends!!! They are the friendliest, easiest and most welcoming property management company out there! It was the quickest turn around in between applying for our first student flat and being invited into the office to sign an agreement (not even 24 hours)! Sarah is an absolute gem! Could not recommend her enough! Thanks WKB”

Our landlord Sophie has been so great to work with. She is super reliable, organised and very prompt with any sort of communication. Any issues in our flat were resolved really quickly with an easy going, friendly attitude. Thank you!

WK&B look after our two rental properties and have really gone above and beyond in helping us right away after our purchases, helping to get rental contracts arranged, looking after our tenants/maintenance and repairs and really keeping things simple for us. Excellent communicators and we'd highly recommend them.

As a reluctant landlord (house purchased, home not sold) I was concerned about the risk of damage. WKB signed up three successive tenants who were all very good and left my new home in excellent condition. The tenants and the WKB staff were all easy to work with. I was particularly impressed by the efficiency and effectiveness of Justine Heyward, and would certainly go back to her if I have another house to let.

I was a client of Tania and Monique this past year and they were both excellent! Great women, very lovely and it was always so easy to get things sorted out by them! WKB has been a great company to deal with during my first year of renting and I really recommend

I only dealt with this company for a short while (as my landlord changed their property managers) but they were amazing! Very easy to work with, communication was prompt and clear and Fiona went above and beyond to support me. I appreciated the great service when I had it!

I have been a client of WK & B Property Manager Fiona Thompson for over 10 years. Fiona has done an excellent job in managing my 2 flats in Riccarton, & I have always been delighted with her professionalism & help in all sorts of ways as an overseas (but Kiwi) landlord. I am always happy to go with her recommendations regarding repairs & maintenance, as the contractors / suppliers that she recommends are great. She has also always picked top notch tenants for me & I have never had any issues with non payment of rent or property damage. I would highly recommend Fiona as a Property Manager.

Brilliant to deal with no issues at all. I've been with them 3 into my 4 year now. I have referred a friend who also found them easy to communicate with as well. Would recommend again.

I am reviewing a particular staff member: Kirsty Mcoscar. She is an excellent property manager and an asset to the team. She has made tenancy a breeze, she is understanding, flexible, responsive, diligent and just a great agent. If she is a reflection of the wider team, I would highly recommend this property agency. Thank you for a very positive tenancy experience.

Whittle Night and Boatwood made our transition into flat life very simple and trouble free. Our agent Sophie Brinkers was professional, pleasant and approachable with any flat related issue or query. We would all happily sign with WKB and Sophie again.

My flatmates and I have had a fantastic experience with Whittle Knight and Boatwood Ltd as we have searched for our first flat. The property manager, Sarah, was really awesome at making sure we understood all the details and ensuring that the whole experience was transparent for our entire group. Would highly recommend finding an ideal property through this professional and client friendly company

Our association with Whittle Knight & Boatwood team is recent when we decided to rent a property managed by them. We had a hassle free experience thanks to extra efforts put in by WKB staff. We have found them to be highly professional, accommodating, practical and responsive not just while letting the house but also during our stay. Louisa Bushnell is our property manager who is customer-centric and caring. She is easily accessible; we have got response from her irrespective of a weekend or off-duty hours. Overall, we are glad that we chose to go with Whittle Knight & Boatwood to make our first home in Christchurch.

Whittle Knight and Boatwood are very professional and very well connected. When I relocated to Christchurch they had some excellent accommodation options available, and set me up with the right fit for my circumstances. Louisa Bushnell and the other Whittle Knight staff are friendly, easy to relate to, and very helpful - whatever your background. Highly recommended whether you want long or short term accommodation.
