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.

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.
