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. We may have a waiting list of people that would like to take over your licence agreement which would then relinquish you from your contract. If you find a new Licensee, we'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 350 admin fee). We 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. 

Do I pay a booking fee or deposit?

For our properties in England we ask for a non-refundable holding deposit (100-250 depending on the location) to allocate you a room. Unfortunately, we 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].  you will be required to top up the holding deposit prior to move in to make the deposit up to GBP 250.

Can I transfer my booking to a different Student Castle?

Its possible that youll be able to transfer from one Student Castle to another before moving in, but this completely depends on what we have available.

If you need to request a transfer, contact the site manager at your original Student Castle location.

Can I change my room?

If youd like to change your room once youve moved in, well do our best to accommodate you (providing were not fully booked). Any moves will incur a 50 admin fee.

What happens if my student loan is late and I cant pay my instalment on time?

The student loan shouldn't be late, however if there is a problem we will need a letter from the loan company showing 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 here, but please keep us posted and we can help you.

Most of our contracts run for 51 weeks. Our site in Edinburgh offers 46 week contracts only if you want to pay your rent in three installments, you'll need a UK-based guarantor. This is someone who lives and works in the UK and is willing to sign a contract saying they'll pay your rent if you fail to do so. We will run a credit check on your guarantor if they happen to fail well get in touch about what to do next. Your guarantor cannot be another student or a government.If you do not have a guarantor then you'll need to pay your rent for the whole Licence Agreement in advance.
