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.

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”
