What are the Terms and Conditions of staying at The Project?

All rooms that are let directly to students are done so using an assured shorthold tenancy agreement. These agreements outline what is expected of the resident and, in turn, The Project at Hoxtons (and its management company Hosts) obligations as a landlord.

The agreements are legally binding documents 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 building or not. 

What does being a guarantor mean?

All students who wish to take advantage of The Projects rent-instalment plan are required to provide a UK guarantor (excludes the Isle of Man and 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 years rent upon application.  

When do I pay my rent?

Our rent dates and amounts are set out clearly on the website and within our application literature. 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.
