Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I have to pay advanced rent?

This secures your booking so that you can take a little bit of time to complete your contract without worrying.

Why do I need a guarantor?

A guarantor commits to ensuring that the terms of the tenancy agreement are complied with. Guarantors provide us with additional financial security in the event of a change in your circumstance. If you would like to pay in instalments throughout the year, you will need a UK based guarantor.

Who can be a guarantor?

Anyone over the age of 18, who is a UK resident, can be your guarantor.

In what situations might we contact the guarantor?

Circumstances change, and we understand that. A guarantor assures us as your landlords, that there is someone on hand who understands and accepts the responsibility of rent, should you be unable to pay.

What details from the guarantor do I need to provide when booking?

We will need a Name, current UK address, email address and a contact number. Once you have signed the contract your guarantor will be asked to accept the agreement and provide proof of ID and address. If they are not a UK national but reside in the UK they must provide proof of settled status.

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

Don’t worry if you do not have a guarantor, we do have other options available for you. Full payment contracts are available. This would mean your rental is payable upfront at the start of your tenancy and therefore no need for a guarantor. However, we know that upfront payment can be a big ask and in these circumstances we can recommend an approved UK rent guarantor service. Please speak to your individual site team if you are looking to use a rent guarantor service.

What do I do if there is a problem with my room or flat?

You can log maintenance issues through the online portal by logging into your account on the website and clicking ‘Maintenance request’. You can also report urgent issues to reception either by coming to the reception desk or calling the telephone number on the site web page. A member of our friendly on-site maintenance team will aim to resolve the issue for you quickly.

How can I obtain the instructions on appliances within my flat?

If you require any instructions or user guides please contact your property manager who will be able to assist with this, or any of our staff on site will be able to assist with this.

Are there staff available onsite?

Each Property site has a friendly team available to our residents 24/7. For some of our sites, an emergency contact number will be provided when staff are not onsite.

When can I move in?

If you booked directly with us, you will be able to move in on your tenancy start date, please check your tenancy agreement for confirmation of this, or contact the accommodation team at the site you have booked.

Can I move in earlier than my tenancy start date?

If you need to move in earlier than your tenancy start date, please contact the site you have booked at, all contact numbers and emails can be found on their web page. Early arrivals are subject to availability and you will need to pay any additional rent due before you move in.

How long can I live with Property?

Property offers tenancies of different lengths, including short-term contracts. The minimum stay is 4 weeks, and all short term lets are subject to availability and must be paid in advance. If you are interested in a short-term contract, please contact the site directly.

When can I move out?

You can move out whenever you want. However, remember your contract is a fixed-term tenancy agreement so even If you move out before your tenancy ends you will still need to pay the full amount of rent.

Can I extend my contract if I need to?

If you need to extend your contract for whatever reason, please contact your accommodation team directly for prices and information. Extensions are subject to availability.

Do I need a guarantor?

To book with us you will need a guarantor. However, please note your guarantor must be in a position to pay any rent due if you are struggling to pay your rent or your student loan is late.

Can I find out who my flatmates are before I move in?

While we can let you know the ages and genders of your future flatmates, we cannot provide their names or any other personal information. This information is present during the self-select process on line. However, you can find your flatmates through our Facebook pages, or through your University’s social media – it’s a great way of getting to know everyone in your flat before you’ve even moved in!

What do I need to bring with me that my accommodation doesn’t already provide?

Unsure of what you need to bring for your bedroom? we're here to help! When it comes to your bedroom, please note that we do not provide bedding. We suggest you bring along a duvet, pillows and bed linen. You may also want to bring clothes hangers, towels and a laundry bin. While we provide some kitchen appliances, we do suggest each tenant brings their own crockery, cutlery and other kitchen utensils. Upon arrival, most students living in shared flats arrange with their flatmates to buy some communal items – we recommend this as a cheaper option which would also avoid cluttering the kitchen with multiple items. For a full list of what we advise you to bring, check out your student handbook. If you are unable to bring certain items with you, don’t panic – there are plenty of shops close by where you can find the things you need.

Can I park on-site?

There are designated smoking areas in the grounds of every building which you are welcome to use. Note that anyone found to be smoking in the building will be subject to our antisocial behaviour process.

Can I have guests over?

As a tenant of a Property site you are more than welcome to invite guests to your accommodation for up to 2 nights at a time. If your guest is staying overnight, please let a staff member know. They also suggest that you do be mindful of your flatmates: let them know before your guests arrive, and ensure you still comply with site rules regarding noise in the flat. Moreover, remember that as a tenant of a Property site you are responsible for the behaviour and actions of your guests.

Can I swap rooms?

It may be possible to change your room after you have moved in depending on availability- they suggest you get in touch with your accommodation team on site, over the phone or through email. Please note to be able to complete a room move, your rent account will need to be fully up to date, an inspection of your room will take place and you will incur a £50 administration charge that will need to be paid before the move can take place.

When do I pay my rent?

If you prefer you can also pay your rental in full at the start of your contract.
