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 our 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.

How long is the contract?

Property schemes offer 51 and 45 weeks contracts.

How much is my rent?

To find out how much each room costs, go to the location you’re interested in and you’ll find all the details there.

What is included in my rent?

All your utility bills (including super-fast broadband and WiFi) are included, as is contents insurance for your room.

What happens if I can’t make my payment on time?

Come and talk to the team- they will always work with you to find the best way for you to pay your rent. If your payment is seven days late and they haven't heard from you, you'll be charged a £30 admin fee.

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.

What's the best way for me to pay for my rent?

Debit card, credit card or bank transfer are all fine – make your choice when you complete your booking.

When do I need to pay?

For our sites in England, if you have a UK guarantor then you can pay in 3 instalments in September, January and April. The 1st payment will be due 12 days before your licence starts. If the 1st instalment of your Student Loan is paid after this date then they can accept a payment of 4 weeks rent 1 week before you move in, with the balance paid when you receive your loan. The sites in Scotland can align payments with when you receive your Student Loan. Please contact us for further information. For full-year contracts payments will be required in 3 instalments in September, January and April.

When’s the latest I can book?

As long as there’s a room available. They keep their site perfectly up to date so you’ll be able to see where their spaces are.

Can I book if I'm under 18?

All residents living at one of their schemes in England are required to be over the age of 17 during the academic year booked, and residents living in their schemes in Scotland are to be age 16 or over. Exceptions may be available on a case-by-case basis, and you will need to contact the site to get approval. If in doubt, please contact the respective schemes and the on-site team will be able to advise you.

How do I apply for a visa to the UK?

You can apply for a Student visa to study in the UK if you’re 16 or over and you:, have been offered a place on a course by a licensed student sponsor, have enough money to support yourself and pay for your course - the amount will vary depending on your circumstances, can speak, read, write and understand English, have consent from your parents if you’re 16 or 17 - you’ll need evidence of this when you apply.

How do I open a bank account?

The UK has lots of banks, including National Westminster (NatWest), Barclays, RBS, Santander, HSBC and Lloyds. 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?

You’ll find that your student union often has job adverts, and if you’re looking for shop, bar or restaurant work you can usually spot “Help wanted” signs in the shop windows. Your local Jobcentre will also have opportunities – simply head to the website and search by area.

How do I register with a doctor?

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

If I’m an international student can I open a bank account in the UK?

No problem – you’ll just need the same identification as other students. Take your passport, driving licence and at least one proof of address document such as a bill or licence. If you can get a letter from your bank at home recommending you, that’s even better – but you don’t strictly need this, and you absolutely do need the ID mentioned above.
