Can Property cancel my Reservation?

Property reserves the right to cancel a reservation and return the Deposit if:

You have not yet completed a tenancy agreement and/or they are unable to provide the accommodation of choice.


Can I Cancel My Tenancy Agreement After I Move In?

An AST is a legally binding agreement. Once signed, you are legally obliged to meet the terms and conditions therein for the duration of the agreement. You cannot cancel your tenancy once it has been signed regardless of occupation. For the avoidance of doubt, if you sign the AST but do not move into the property or decide to vacate early, you are still bound by the terms and responsible for rent for the full duration of the tenancy.

An early release may be considered if;

You find a suitable replacement tenant for the remaining period of the original tenancy. You will not be released from your AST until the ingoing tenant has accepted a new AST as per the same terms as the original. For the avoidance of doubt, you remain responsible for all rents until the new AST is in effect and will be released from the obligations thereafter.

You enter a new tenancy agreement with property Limited for a different room but for the same tenancy period.

What is a Deposit?

Your Deposit of 250  is due when you book your room. Your Deposit secures your room once you sign the Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement and your Guarantor signs the Guarantee (if required). At the start of your tenancy your 250 Deposit will be held in a custodial deposit protection scheme with DPS (Deposit Protection Service) and will be returned to you at the end of your stay, subject  that there are no charges to be added to your fee.

Do I need to pay any bills?

Your weekly rent includes all electricity, heating and water bills and room internet access. However, they follow a reasonable use policy and if they feel your use of any of the utilities (electricity or water)  is excessive, they will notify you of our concerns, and if the excessive use does not change, they reserve the right to charge you for such excessive use

  • Do not give them to anyone else

How old do I have to be to live in your accommodation?

To live at one of our properties you must be 18 or over, on or before, the start date of your tenancy agreement.

What do I have to pay and when?

You will need to pay the 250 Deposit to secure your room. You will then have two options you can pay by four instalments or in one lump sum. Paying in four instalments: Students will need to provide evidence of a UK based guarantor if they wish to pay by instalments.  Students will also need to sign a Direct Debit Mandate form to pay by instalments. The first instalment of rent is due in our bank account 10 days before the start of your tenancy. They will notify you in good time of the bank account details, or you can pay through our on-line portal with a debit card or credit card (credit cards attract a processing charge). The start of your tenancy is the first date shown on your Assured Shorthold Tenancy, NOT the date you move into your room. If you are receiving a Student Loan, and using this to pay your rent, you will NOT receive this loan until you have arrived at University and registered with your course. The University will then notify the Student Loans Company that you have registered, and the Student Loans Company then pay you the first terms loan, which may arrive one to two weeks after you need to move in. It may therefore be difficult for you to pay your first rent instalment in full without your loan. If that is the case, you should speak to your guarantor to ask for assistance in the interim. If you require further assistance please contact your site team for more information. Paying in one lump sum: If students are unable to provide a UK based guarantor, payment will need to be paid in full at least 10 days prior to tenancy start dates.

What is a guarantor?

A Guarantor is a person that you nominate who will guarantee that your rent will be paid if you are unable to pay it yourself. The person needs to be capable of meeting your obligations if you are unable to. If you fail to pay your rent on time, the guarantor will be responsible to ensure your rent is paid in full. More information about guarantors can be found here. An overseas based guarantor, or one who is overseas but has a UK bank account is not acceptable. If you are not able to provide your own guarantor, Housing Hand is an international guarantor service that provides this service to all students who cannot provide a suitable or qualified UK Guarantor. Housing Hand also specialises in dealing with International students who cannot provide a Guarantor in the UK.
