What happens if I check out and nobody is at reception?

If reception is not open, look for a fast check out key drop box where you can leave your check out envelope.

Can I leave my belongings in my room?

Not unless you have booked to continue staying with us in your room and have a valid tenancy. Anything that is left once you have checked out will be removed as we have to get the room ready for the next tenant. A charge may apply if we have to remove any leftover belongings, so please remember to clear everything out when you leave.

Can I leave things in my room if have rebooked for next year?

If you have a valid tenancy covering the time period, then yes you can. We just ask you to label any items in shared areas to confirm that they belong to you and not to someone else who has already checked out. This will help our cleaners. If your booking finishes in june or july and your next tenancy starts in september, you will need to arrange a summer short stay tenancy to bridge the gap.  If you do not have a valid tenancy for the summer months, you will need to move everything out of your room and shared areas as someone else could be occupying the flat immediately after you leave.

Whats the latest time I can check out?

This varies depending on your property so check with a team member at reception well in advance of your check-out date. It is likely that the latest time will be 12:00pm on the last day of your tenancy.

Can I stay an extra day?

This depends on your room and property, so please speak to the reception team regarding extending your stay.

When will I get my deposit back?

If you are staying in england, you will get your deposit back in the form of a cheque, sent to your home address, within 14 days after your tenancy end date. If you are staying in scotland, mydeposits scotland will have emailed you a unique release code at the start of your stay. You need this at the end of your tenancy to authorise the return of your deposit. Your property contacts mydeposits scotland at the end of your tenancy to confirm that you have checked out of your accommodation and advise on the deposit amount due to be refunded to you. This will be the full deposit minus any charges applied after your room has been inspected, or if your tenancy account has any outstanding balance due. Mydeposits scotland will email to tell you that we have started the release process. You have 30 working days from the date of this email to respond to the deposit release request. You will need to enter your release code to access any refund. If you do not respond within this timeframe, mydeposits scotland will return the deposit amount we have advised as due following your check out.

I forgot to put on the inventory that there was some damage when I moved in. Will I be charged?

Possibly yes, this is to be fair and consistent with our approach
