Cancellation Policy

On making your booking Property Management you will be asked to pay a non-refundable booking fee. This is to secure the booking of your room and ensure it is held for you. Once your tenancy commences this booking fee converts to your refundable Deposit. If your tenancy agreement is an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) it will be protected in the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS), an independent government approved tenancy deposit protection scheme. Your Deposit will be refunded to you at the end of your tenancy if there are no outstanding arrears or damage to your room and/or communal areas. 

Once you have made your booking, property Management will make relevant checks to confirm your place at university and then make you an Offer of Accommodation. Once an Offer of Accommodation has been sent to you, you need to log into your account, check your details, read through your tenancy agreement and sign the online contract before uploading relevant identification documentation. You will be asked to pay the full years rent up front unless you have a UK based guarantor. If you have a UK based guarantor, you are able to pay your rent in 3 instalments. The first instalment needs to be paid 10 days before your contract starts. You will not be able to move into the property if this has not been paid. The second rent instalment is due in January and the final one in April. In some circumstances, we may be able to offer you a 4 part payment plan, as some student loans come through later, please contact us for more information.

If for any reason we are not able to make you an Offer of Accommodation we will contact you as soon as possible detailing reasons why or with an alternative solution. If we cannot offer an alternative or the alternative is not suitable we will refund your booking fee in full via the original method the payment was made. 

1. 14 -DAY COOLING OFF PERIOD 

If you choose to cancel your booking with property Management, providing you have not seen the accommodation, you have 14 calendar days after receiving the original Accommodation Offer to do so to get a full refund of the booking fee paid.

(a) 14 days after receipt of the Accommodation Offer email and 

(b) the date you actually check-in. You may cancel your booking by sending an email to the relevant Accommodation Office email address listed on the individual sites contact details. Property Management will refund your booking fee within 14 calendar days of cancellation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much is the Holding Deposit and what happens to it?

We ask you to pay a Holding Deposit to secure your room. When your tenancy commences, the Holding Deposit will convert into a refundable Security deposit. All deposits are registered with TDS which is a government accredited Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme provider. At the end of your tenancy, a final inspection of your room will be carried out prior to your move out and if any deductions are required they will be discussed with you at this point. Assuming the room and its belongings are in the same condition as when you moved and you have provided your bank details within our Portal you will get your deposit back within 10 working days. If you cancel your room booking within 14 days of your Accommodation Offer then you will be entitled to a full refund. After 14 days, the Holding Deposit is non-refundable*. Please refer to our cancellation policy for full terms and conditions.

In the event that something is broken or doesnt work in any part of the accommodation, the student needs to report the issues to the accommodation office who will escalate it accordingly. We have Property Management Student maintenance wizards that work full or part-time on-site depending on the property. They are there for the hour of need replacing light bulbs, blown fuses, blocked showers etc. We do also work with local contractors for isolated issues.

We always offer for the maintenance operative/contractor to be escorted for the jobs entirety if necessary.

We are proud to offer a postal service during office hours within our schemes. We always communicate the postal process to our students when they move in, however, we will always make every effort to ensure that your daughter/son gets their mail safely.

How do you allocate rooms?

We take booking preferences very seriously and take great pride in being able to accommodate these in most cases. There is a preference box on the booking form which allows the student to put any preferences they might have, for example friends they wish to live with, location of room within the building, same sex cluster flats. We always do our best to accommodate these preferences, if for whatever reason we cant fulfil them we will always try to achieve one or two and notify the student if they arent possible.
