Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I live at this Property?

They want you to have the best student experience possible. That means going beyond just providing somewhere comfy and practical to live; they want you to live somewhere you feel safe and happy. And they have staff on-hand 24/7 to ensure that’s the case. Consequently, we’ve been awarded with an International Accommodation Quality Mark and have also been voted Best Private Halls Provider 2019 & 2018 and Best Value for Money 2016 in the National Student Housing Survey. So, the question should really be, why should I not stay at this Property.

Do I have to be a student to live with this Property?

To take out a tenancy with us you need to be eligible for council tax exemption. This applies to all full-time students and some part-time students. However, if you’re unsure, your university or college should be able to let you know. During the summer months some of our halls offer summer accommodation which is available to students and sometimes non-students as well.

Can I connect to the internet?

Absolutely. A super-fast internet connection is available in every Property bedroom. But just so you know, broadband arrangements do vary in some halls.

Do I need to move out during the holidays?

Your Property contract is for a fixed length of time – so your room is yours during that period. That means that you don’t have the hassle of moving your belongings out during the Christmas or Easter vacations, and you can choose to stay in your property over these holidays if you want. It’s usually possible to book additional accommodation over the summer period if you want to stay then too. But they advise booking early to ensure rooms are available.

When is the management office open?

The management office is open Monday to Friday, each week. The opening hours are 9am-6pm Monday-Thursday and 9am-5pm on a Friday*.

When do I pay my rent?

Our rent dates and amounts are set out clearly on the website and within our application literature. You can also find out when payments are due by logging into your online account. Please note: your rent may be due before the contract begins and that the dates may not coincide with student loan dates. This should be taken into consideration when planning your accommodation as late payments may be subject to interest charges and, in some cases, legal action against the resident and their guarantor.

How do I cancel a booking?

If you cancel your contract before the contract begins, or you want to cancel and move out early, you will be subject to our cancellation terms and charges. You can find the Cancellation Policy beneath the pricing options for the room you have booked. Alternatively, you can also contact your accommodation directly and request a copy of the policy.

Do I need to take out contents insurance?

No, you do not. Contents insurance is automatically included with your rent. Property is working in partnership with Cover4insurance.com and their student insurance, Cover4Students, to provide some cover for the contents inside your room. You don’t need to do anything to activate this cover, but it is important for you to check and ensure that you fully understand the protection provided and whether it is sufficient for your needs. Property share your details with Cover4insurance for the purpose of providing you with contents insurance.
  • Check your level of cover
  • Review key exclusions and limitations
  • Check your policy excess
  • Learn how to make a claim
  • Extend and personalise your cover to protect additional items such as bicycles, musical instruments and photographic equipment

Please check with your chosen location to see if this service is available. In addition, electronic door entry systems, intercoms and CCTV ensure that everyone who lives with us enjoys a high standard of security and the safest possible environment. So they can get on with enjoying themselves.

What happens if I have a maintenance problem?

Every Property home has a dedicated caretaker team to respond to and solve your maintenance issues. they respond to every issue quickly and, if possible, will complete the repair during the first visit. Of course, this isn’t always possible and there are times when parts need to be ordered or external contractors arranged. When this happens, we’ll keep you updated on the progress.

How do I know that Property is a good landlord?

Property is proud to agree to the principals required by the ANUK Code of Standards. Fully supported by NUS, the National Code is voluntary and aimed at both educational establishments and private sector suppliers. Those who join make a commitment to provide students with a first-class housing service and agree to provide information, reassurance and a clear procedure if a dispute occurs.

What are the Terms and Conditions of staying with Property?

All rooms that are let directly to students are done so using an assured short-hold tenancy agreement (or Licence to Reside in Ireland). These agreements outline what is expected of the resident and, similarly, Property’s obligations as a landlord. The agreements are a legally binding document and should be read carefully. Once signed they are for a fixed term and should the resident wish to move out of the accommodation before the end date, they will remain liable for the full rent until the end of the contracted period and are responsible for the condition of the property regardless of whether they are staying in the hall or not. For locations where you book through a university accommodation office rather than directly with Property, you may be provided with a different type of agreement. Please visit the FAQ section on the website of your chosen property for further information.

What does being a guarantor mean?

All students who wish to take up our rent instalment plan are required to provide a UK guarantor (excludes the Isle of Man and also the Channel Islands). By agreeing to be a guarantor, you are signing a legal document stating that you agree to pay the rent and guarantee the behaviour of the resident if they default.Please do not sign this agreement if you do not wish to take on this responsibility.Any student who does not have a UK guarantor will be required to pay the full year’s rent upon application.
  • Your contract is clearly written, stating what you are paying for and how much your rent is, with reasonable terms and no hidden costs.
  • Best practice day-to-day management is supported and recognised.
  • Your accommodation should be fully prepared for you when you arrive to take up residence.
  • Your accommodation meets with a set of nationally recognised standards in respect to services, furniture and fittings.
  • Repairs and maintenance are carried out within agreed timescales.
  • Your building will meet with, and exceed, the required health and safety standards.
  • You will be given information to explain what management routines are followed in the buildings.
  • There’s a set and accountable procedure for dealing with any disputes or complaints.

What does fully-furnished kitchen mean?

Property designs homes that provide everything you need to enjoy living with us. Our flats come kitted out with all your cooking appliances: cooker, hob, kettle, toaster and microwave – and some sites also provide cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils.

Do you have staff at your properties?

Every home has a team of trained staff on site to respond to meet your needs. Their job is to make your Property experience as enjoyable as possible. Our on-site management offices are open Monday to Friday. During these times they will answer any questions, respond to any issues and offer advice, as well as ensure a friendly face is there to greet you every day. Many of our properties also have a highly skilled team of caretakers who are available around the clock. They’re there to resolve any maintenance issues quickly and efficiently – keeping the site safe and secure. Security guards also support the caretaker team on most sites to ensure there’s a 24/7 presence. Please check at your chosen location to confirm details.
