About Us


When our daughter went to Staffs University we found very little in the way of decent accommodation with a few suspect landlords and practices. We were generally appalled at the standard of the houses we viewed so we decided to give her a home away from home in which she could work in a reasonable environment with emphasis on safety, security, comfort and efficiency. Our first house was a great success and led by demand, we purchased additional properties – the rest, they say, is history.  



I am an ex Fleet Air Arm pilot and Royal Naval Officer, laterly flying for a Dutch airline in the jungle and swamps of southern Nigeria. Following a motor accident the Civil Aviation Authority revoked my flying licence due to the injuries sustained. The company, Zadco Properties, was formed as an umbrella for the student accommodation and the name is derived from an offshore oil field in the Middle East where I flew commercially after leaving the Royal Navy. 


It is our intention to provide good quality accommodation close to the university operating a professional, friendly, give and take relationship with our tenants.


If we can help you, please, give us a call.
