During his first semester at Bristol, Charlie rounded up investors, purchased and renovated 3 properties which he then let to some very happy friends;  Now supported by a young and passionate team headquartered in Londons bustling St James, Charlies vision is channelled through student accommodation in 23 British university cities and towns, allowing domestic and international students to enjoy a better standard of living, whilst also experiencing the peace of mind that they are living somewhere secure. They have been reinventing university living since the early noughties, and have ambitious plans to continue changing the face of UK student accommodation for the better.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do i prevent pests (rats and insects) in my Crib?

Here are some quick points that can prevent pests:       

Try and make a habit of cleaning up immediately after meals. Wash all dishes, wipe down tables or counters, and store leftovers in airtight containers. Cleaning up quickly prevents pests from making their way onto dirty dishes or uncovered foods.       

When possible, buy food that comes in cans or jars. Pests like insects and rodents can easily chew through plastic, paper and cardboard.       Keep more food in the refrigerator or freezer. Few insects and rodents can make their way into these appliances (some food lasts longer when cool).       

ALWAYS CLEAN! The kitchen needs to be cleaned more often than other areas of the home. Even the tiniest of crumbs can attract pests. Be mindful of brushing away crumbs and sanitising tables and countertops after any type of food prep. Sweep away anything that hits the floor.       

Take out the rubbish as soon as its needed. Allowing rubbish to sit in the kitchen only invites pests over for dinner.       Keep your cabinets clean! It is important to inspect your cabinets regularly for exposed food, crumbs or signs of a pest invasion.

My Dishwasher isn’t working, what should i do?

Dishwashers need salt and rinse aid regularly- the filter also needs to be kept clean and clear of debris as this will cause blockages.

My tumble dryer is broken, what should i do?

Tumble dryers need to be emptied of fluff on a regular basis, not emptying this will cause the unit to overheat and not work correctly. 

There is mould in my house what do I do?

Condensation mould forms when there is too much moisture in the air and it hits a cold surface. If the mould reoccurs after you have removed it and you are not drying clothes inside please report as an issue so we can investigate. 

The extractor fan is not working in my bathroom?

There will be an isolation switch outside the bathroom please ensure this is turned on before reporting as maintenance. 

Our shower is flooding / not draining when we use it what should we do?

If your shower is blocked do not continue to shower with it running over the top, as this will cause a leak and damage to the house. You need to unblock showers regularly and ensure the plug is free from hair. 

My washing machine door won’t open and my clothes are stuck inside – what should I do?

This often happens when the door is attempted to be opened before the door has unlocked after the cycle. Always wait 5 minutes before trying to open the door. If this is the case and it has been forced open this may be something that will require repairs that we may not cover the cost of.  Sometimes, the washing machine will have a drain function, so please use this if possible before opening the door using a piece of string. Refer to this video for a tutorial on this temporary fix/ to get your trapped closed out: https://youtu.be/J7vzWGMvfOM?t=97 

Our rubbish isn’t being collected – why is this?

Please ensure that you are disposing of your household waste correctly and putting it out on the correct day (preferably the night before as this ensures collection, a lot of students arent up at 9 am!). You can search online when collection days are/what you can and cant put in each bin. *This is important as the council reserve the right to refuse collection if the rubbish is disposed of incorrectly* If you think you need more council bins, please let us know and we can put in a request. You can find information on bin collections on your council website. 

We have received multiple emails about when a contractor is attending a maintenance issue: which one is correct?

Always listen to the most recent email. Unfortunately, our maintenance team may have to attend to emergency problems which can take priority over your maintenance, hence them rescheduling the visit date. 

Our power has gone out in our house: what should we do?

Firstly check with your neighbours to see if this is an area fault. You can also check on the national grid; you can check on this website https://www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk/power-cut. There may be something that has caused the electric to trip inside the house. You can check the fuse box and identify what has caused the outage. Often these can be re-engaged please do not force switches up if they cannot be re-engaged or the issue repeats itself please report as maintenance. 

What is the best way to report maintenance?

For general maintenance, reporting it through will mean that the issue is resolved as quickly as possible for you. If the issue is an emergency please call the office immediately

What is the fair usage policy and what does it mean?

It is important to remember that your energy usage is not unlimited. You will be responsible for any additional costs if you exceed your allowance. 


Is WiFi provided and how fast is it?

WiFi is provided in all of our accommodation, and is accessible in each room of the property. Your WiFi access is included in your monthly rent. Due to the nature of WiFi, speeds may vary depending on proximity to the router, the nature of the usage and the number of devices connected at any one time. If you would like to know specifics about WiFi provision at one of our properties please ask your point of contact in the Lettings Team. 

Can I pay my rent by Direct Debit?

Currently for 2020/2021 tenants we only have direct debits available for a select number of properties. If this has not be mentioned to you in regard to your tenancy then youre able to set up a standing order with your bank for your designated rent due dates. 

How is my monthly/quarterly rent calculated?

Your yearly rent is calculated as your weekly rent times 52 weeks, divided by 12 payments (monthly) or 4 payments (quarterly). 

Are bills included in my rent?

Please refer to your tenancy agreement to see whether bills are included in your rent. 

I’ve paid a retainer; does this amount get deducted from my first rental payment?

If you have paid us a retainer, you can deduct this amount from your first rental instalment.   a

What happens if I stop being a full time student?

You can still live in your Crib until the end of your contracted period; however you will become liable for council tax during this time. If you no longer want to live in your Crib, we can help you find somebody to take over your contract, however this cannot be guaranteed. 

Can I change my payment plan?

Yes, payment plans can be changed to monthly, quarterly or in line with student loan payments. Please contact us with details of your request and we will get back to you. 

What is the best way for me to pay my rent?

The quickest way to pay rent is via the tenant portal. However, payment can be made over the phone, via our website, bank transfer or standing order. Please note there may be a 72 hour delay from making the payment to the payment showing on your tenant portal. We accept Mastercard and Visa. a

When do I need to pay my rent?

Your contract will outline the dates on which your rental payments are due. If you believe you will have difficulty paying on these dates or would like to align you rental payments with your student loans then please contact us to discuss this. Please note that all tenants will need to pay their first instalment of rent before we can release keys to any tenants on joint contracts. 

Renting a Crib

Can I still view Cribs in person?

In line with existing Government guidance, in person viewings are still going ahead. We have implemented the following precautions: a

  1. Only 1 person can view at a time, in addition to a representative. The person viewing should dial their group in via Whatsapp / Facetime / Zoom to show them the property.
  2. Masks must be worn at all times by anyone viewing a Crib, and all representatives.
  3. Hand sanitizer must be applied on entry and exit of the Crib.
  4. Anyone entering a property to view has been told to avoid any unnecessary contact with surfaces / items in the Crib.
  5. If tenants are self-isolating, in person viewings are post-poned until the isolation period is over. Video viewings can be booked for these Cribs in the meantime.

Can a Young Professional Rent a House?

You dont have to be a student to live in a Crib, but you would be liable for council tax. You could find out the cost through the council. If you are not a student, you must be a young professional to live in a Crib. 

Can I end my contract early?

You are committed under your tenancy agreement to pay the full contracted rent, unless you can find someone to take over the remainder of your contract and there are at least 6 months remaining on your tenancy agreement.   a

Can I move in earlier than my contract start date?

You will not be able to move in before the start date of your tenancy. 

I want to view a property, what do I do?

Make an enquiry on the website and book a viewing using our online booking platform. All people viewing a property must wear a mask and santisie their hands before entering the property and on departure. All attendants must adhere to social distancing and avoid physical contact with surfaces, furnishings and personal belongings in the property. a

How do I know if my group has the house?

Your group will only have the house once all the tenancy details forms have been completed, a contract has been sent out, all tenant and guarantors have signed, all remaining retainers have been paid and all identification for tenants and guarantors received. Then the landlord will contract the property and you will be notified of this by email. 

But what about administration fees?

We have no admin fees!! Theyre unnecessary, dated and stop you from getting the most for your money. 

How long is the tenancy?

Our standard tenancy length is 52 weeks, unless you are taking one of our houses which is being refurbished (these tenancies are often slightly shorter). 

How do I get my tenancy agreement sent to me?

After paying the holding retainer we ask you to fill out a tenant details link that we email over to your whole group. When this is done we send out the tenancy agreement via email. 

How do I sign the tenancy agreement?

You sign the tenancy agreement online. There are clear instructions when you open the document, please ensure you sign your first and last name (no initials). 

What does joint and several liability mean?

Joint and several liability means that both individually and jointly all of the tenants are individually and jointly responsible for paying rent and for all other tenants responsibilities during the tenancy. 

What do I do If I don’t understand the tenancy agreement?

Do not sign the agreement if you do not understand. You can also give us a call or email. Your university should be able to advise you if there is anything you need clarifying. 

What else do I need to do after signing the tenancy agreement?

We also need you to send us proof of you ID (drivers licence or passport) and we need your guarantor to send us proof of ID and proof of address (utility bill or similar dated in the last three months). 

Where do I send my tenancy document to?

After signing your agreement online it will automatically send us a copy so there is nothing you need to do apart from sign. 

When do I need to return everything by?

Your holding deposit reserves the house for 3 working days. In this time you need to send us your documents and sign the tenancy agreement. 

What is a guarantor?

This is someone who is willing to guarantee your rent payments on your behalf. This is standard practice with student rental properties due to your employment status. A guarantor is signing the tenancy agreement confirming that they are guaranteeing your obligations in the contract. 

Why must my guarantor be UK based?

Property laws are different outside of the UK. This means that it is not possible for your guarantor to be based elsewhere. 

What can I do if I don’t have a guarantor?

If you do not have a UK based guarantor, you can either use housinghand which will act as a guarantor on your behalf or you can pay all of your rent in one annual upfront payment. 

Are there any fees and deposits?

No, there are no fees and no deposits to pay. The 200 holding retainer paid to reserve your property will be deducted from your first months rent. For a limited time only, the holding retainer for Cribs in Stoke and Keele has been reduced to 10.

How do I pay my rent?

you will need to pay your rent quarterly. The easiest way to ensure your rent is paid on time is to set up online payments via your internet banking. Many of our tenants have found this to be an easy way of making payments with the added benefit of not having to remember payment dates! Once completed please send a print screen confirmation to accounts@student-cribs.com. Alternatively, if you wish to go to the bank to enable payments to be set up for you, please email us for a standing order mandate form. You will then have to fill this out with payment dates and amounts and take this to your bank. 

What happens if I do not want to live in my Crib after I signed the contract?

In order to exit your contract you will need to find a replacement tenant to take your room, but only if there is more than 6 months remaining on your contract. The rest of your group will need to agree to this person. Once this is done we can reissue a new contract for everyone to sign. Until the new contract is signed by all parties (all Tenants, all Guarantors and the Landlord) you are legally contracted and obliged to pay your rent. We can assist with finding a replacement tenant by posting on our Facebook page but it is the responsibility of the tenant to find a replacement once contracted. We will never advocate a potential replacement tenant and it it up to you and your housemates to find and select a replacement tenant.

I have viewed a Crib and want to live there, what do I do?

You call the office to pay one 200 holding Retainer. This reserves the property for you and gets the ball rolling. The holding retainer is non-refundable but is deducted from the first months rent of the person who paid it. Each of the other members of the house will also need to pay a 200 holding retainer within 2 days after the tenancy agreement is signed. 

I’m renewing at my house, with no break in my contract, do I still have to have a Right to Rent check?

No you do not, IF your new agreement begins at 9am on the date that your current contract ends you are exempt from a Right to Rent check, as you are not taking out a new contract with us.   

I rented with them last year, do I still have to have a Right to Rent check?

If you are renting a different property with us, or have a break in your contract, you must have another check carried out, this is because, legally, you are entering into a brand new contract with us.    

I have already uploaded my Passport to my Tenant Form, why do I have to upload it again?

We accept a Driving Licence or Passport as a form of ID on the Tenant Form we sent you, to ensure we have the correct documentation from you for the Right to Rent check we require you to submit your Passport/ Acceptable Documents via a separate form.  We take the storage of your data extremely seriously, 

My Passport is expired, is this OK?

Yes, an expired Passport is acceptable for the check.   

What is a Right to Rent Check?

A right to rent check isa check of your Passport to verify that you have the right to rent a residential property in the UK. This consists of comparing a copy of your passport that we must receive in advance with your actual passport in-person. Due to COVID the Gov guidelines for having changed, allowing the passport check to be carried out remotely via video call, with a further follow up check-in person once you have moved into your property and restrictions have been lifted
