Frequently Asked Questions

Do I pay a booking fee or a deposit?

For Their properties in England, they ask for a non-refundable holding deposit (£100-£250 depending on the location) to allocate you a room. Unfortunately, they cannot refund the holding deposit under any circumstances. When you move in your holding deposit will turn into a damage deposit and will be returned at the end of your license [minus any damages]. At their property, you will be required to top up the holding deposit prior to moving in to make the deposit up to £250. Property protects your deposit using a government-authorised deposit protection scheme; the Deposit Protection Service in England.

What happens if I want to cancel my booking?

Get in touch and tell us straight away. How much they can help will depend on the timing and the circumstances of your cancellation. Licence Agreements are legally binding, so once you have signed and returned your contract you're required to pay your rent. If (under special circumstances only) you need to pull out of the Licence Agreement, they'll help try to find a replacement Licensee for your room - but they can't guarantee that they'll be able to. If a new Licensee is found then they can release you from your licence, but there will be a re-licence fee** If you require a copy of the re-licence terms and conditions then please contact us.

Can I leave early and get the remainder of my rent back?

Unfortunately, you are committed under the licence agreement to pay the full rent, however, if you decide you want to leave early please tell the managers of your site asap. They may have a waiting list of people who would like to take over your licence agreement which would then relinquish you from your contract. If you find a new Licensee, they'll let you out of your agreement from the day they move in, and refund you any unused rent that you've paid in advance (minus a £50 admin fee)*. They cannot refund your rent until you have found someone to take over your licence agreement, their booking is confirmed and they have paid the first instalment of their rent.

What bills do I need to pay?

All utility bills (gas, electricity and water), WiFi and contents insurance for your belongings are all included. If you bring your own television or use one that is pre-installed in your room then you will have to buy your own TV licence. If you cease to be a full-time student during the occupation of your room then you will become liable for council tax. If the second occupant of a double occupancy room is not a student then they may also be liable for council tax.

Can I transfer my booking to a different property?

It’s possible that you’ll be able to transfer from one property to another before moving in, but this completely depends on what they have available. If they can transfer you, your booking fee will move with your room but you’ll be charged an admin fee of £50 – and unfortunately, they can’t guarantee that you’ll get the same sort of room. If you need to request a transfer, contact the site manager at your original property location.

Can I change my room?

If you’d like to change your room once you’ve moved in, they’ll do their best to accommodate you (providing they’re not fully booked). Any moves will incur a £50 admin fee*. If you’ve moved to a cheaper room, any excess rent you’ve already paid will be taken off the next instalment. If you’ve already paid for the whole year, they’ll simply give you a refund of the difference.

What happens if my student loan is late and I can’t pay my instalment on time?

The student loan shouldn't be late, however if there is a problem they will need a letter from the loan company showing the amount and dates of payments and four week's advance rent before you move in in September. You can get in touch with the Student Loans Company.

Can I move in earlier or later than my Licence Agreement date if need be?

This depends if your room is ready, so it’s best to contact the scheme directly. You would need to pay for the extra days beforehand.

All of these offer special bank accounts for students, which usually include an interest-free overdraft. All high street banks have the same basic range of services – savings accounts, credit cards, overseas cash transfers and so on – but they offer different deals to attract new customers, so shop around to find your favourite. To open a bank account you’ll need to visit a branch of your bank (check to see if your chosen bank has a branch near your property with the appropriate ID. Your passport, driving licence and one or two forms of proof of address (such as a bill or licence) will usually be enough. Bank accounts take a few days to get up and running, so try to open yours before you leave for university – or make sure you have a credit card to keep you going when you arrive.

If I want to get a part-time job, where should I look for opportunities?

Most surgeries now offer online registration – once you’ve found your local GP, check their website. Check with us too for any recommendations.
