Do I need a Guarantor?

Yes, a Parent or legal Guardian resident in the UK must stand as Guarantor. The Guarantor is legally bound to pay any debts accrued during the tenancy if the tenant refuses to pay. Overseas Students who cannot provide a Guarantor please refer to the options provided on the payment tariff.

Can I bring a pet?

Sorry, no pets are allowed.

Can I have parcels delivered to reception?

They will be happy to accept parcels on your behalf. They wont accept anything they think may contain offensive, dangerous, illegal or illicit material, anything thats too big or heavy for them to store or food deliveries. To pick up your parcels youll need to bring along some photo ID and sign for it. Theyll do their best to look after parcels safely but, in the unlikely event of something going wrong, they wont be liable for any damage to, or loss from, any parcel that youve authorised them to accept on your behalf.

When can I move in?

You can move in on or after the Tenancy Start Date as specified in your tenancy agreement. They will write to you near to the time with more information about collecting your keys and their Reception opening hours.

What items do I need to bring for my room?

All their shared apartments and Studios will be furnished but bedding and personal linen (sheets, duvets, pillows, towels etc.) is not provided. Double size bedding is suitable for beds in all rooms. Standard en-suite beds (in shared apartments) measure approx. 120 x 200cm, while Premium, Deluxe and Studio beds measure approx. 140 x 200cm.

They will aim to find a new tenant who is both acceptable to them and who is prepared to meet the financial and legal requirements of the tenancy agreement at the current prevailing rent. They cant always guarantee finding another tenant, as obviously this becomes more difficult as the academic year progresses, however, you are able to suggest a replacement to them. Please note that you will also need to cover all administration charges incurred in reassigning the tenancy.

How can I get my deposit back?

You will need to make sure that they have evidence that you have been exempt from paying Council Tax during your stay with them. You can get a Council Tax exemption certificate from your university to prove this. Once they have this, and they have inspected your room and found no damage they will release your deposit to the Deposit Protection Service or in Scotland the Lettings Protection Service. You can then claim your deposit back from this service (this is a legal requirement in the UK)

How do I return my keys?

You can return your keys to reception in person or you can post them through receptions post box in a key return envelope which you can collect from reception. Please make sure the keys are labelled with your name, room and flat number. If the keys are not returned you will be charged for a replacement key and fob. You may return your keys before the end of the tenancy, this will not constitute the termination of the agreement and tenants will waive their right to return to the property, to access the accommodation or request keys at any time prior to the end of the tenancy.

Can I store belongings at the property if I am returning next year?

You will need to discuss this with the reception team as it will depend on when your current tenancy ends and the new one begins, and whether someone else will be staying in your room over the summer. They normally advise students to contact a storage company in the area if they cannot keep their belongings in their room.

Can I have visitors?

Unless otherwise stated, bedrooms are for single occupation only. Occasional overnight visitors will be allowed, at the discretion of the management, provided that no disturbance or inconvenience is caused to other occupants. You will be held fully responsible for the actions and behaviour of your visitors.
