Why must my guarantor be uk based?

What happens if I do not want to live in my property after I signed the contract?

In order to exit your contract you will need to find a replacement tenant to take your room, but only if there is more than 6 months remaining on your contract. The rest of your group will need to agree to this person. Once this is done they can reissue a new contract for everyone to sign. Until the new contract is signed by all parties all Tenants, all Guarantors and the Landlord you are legally contracted and obliged to pay your rent.

I want to view a property, what do I do?

The holding retainer is non-refundable but is deducted from the first month’s rent of the person who paid it. Each of the other members of the house will also need to pay a £200 holding retainer within 2 days after the tenancy agreement is signed.

How do I prevent pests, rats and insects in my property?

Here are some quick points that can prevent pests:
· Try and make a habit of cleaning up immediately after meals. Wash all dishes, wipe down tables or counters, and store leftovers in airtight containers. Cleaning up quickly prevents pests from making their way onto dirty dishes or uncovered foods.
· When possible, buy food that comes in cans or jars. Pests like insects and rodents can easily chew through plastic, paper and cardboard.
· Keep more food in the refrigerator or freezer. Few insects and rodents can make their way into these appliances some food lasts longer when cool.
· ALWAYS CLEAN! The kitchen needs to be cleaned more often than other areas of the home. Even the tiniest of crumbs can attract pests. Be mindful of brushing away crumbs and sanitising tables and countertops after any type of food prep. Sweep away anything that hits the floor.
· Take out the rubbish as soon as it’s needed. Allowing rubbish to sit in the kitchen only invites pests over for dinner. Keep your cabinets clean. It is important to inspect your cabinets regularly for exposed food, crumbs or signs of a pest invasion.

My tumble dryer is broken, what should I do?

Tumble dryers need to be emptied of fluff on a regular basis, not emptying this will cause the unit to overheat and not work correctly. Here is a general video on how to unblock the filters.

There is mould in my house what do I do?

Condensation mould forms when there is too much moisture in the air and it hits a cold surface.
If the mould reoccurs after you have removed it and you are not drying clothes inside.

The extractor fan is not working in my bathroom?

There will be an isolation switch outside the bathroom – please ensure this is turned on before reporting as maintenance.

Our shower is flooding / not draining when we use it what should we do?

If your shower is blocked do not continue to shower with it running over the top, as this will cause a leak and damage to the house. You need to unblock showers regularly and ensure the plug is free from hair.

My washing machine door won’t open and my clothes are stuck inside – what should I do?

This often happens when the door is attempted to be opened before the door has unlocked after the cycle. Always wait 5 minutes before trying to open the door. If this is the case and it has been forced open this may be something that will require repairs that they may not cover the cost of. Sometimes, the washing machine will have a drain function, so please use this if possible before opening the door using a piece of string. Refer to this video for a tutorial on this temporary fix/ to get your trapped closed.

Our rubbish isn’t being collected – why is this?

Please ensure that you are disposing of your household waste correctly and putting it out on the correct day preferably the night before as this ensures collection, a lot of students aren’t up at 9 am. You can search online when collection days are/what you can and can’t put in each bin.
