Cancellation Policy

On making your booking Property Management you will be asked to pay a non-refundable booking fee. This is to secure the booking of your room and ensure it is held for you. Once your tenancy commences this booking fee converts to your refundable Deposit. If your tenancy agreement is an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) it will be protected in the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS), an independent government approved tenancy deposit protection scheme. Your Deposit will be refunded to you at the end of your tenancy if there are no outstanding arrears or damage to your room and/or communal areas. 


Once you have made your booking, property Management will make relevant checks to confirm your place at university and then make you an Offer of Accommodation. Once an Offer of Accommodation has been sent to you, you need to log into your account, check your details, read through your tenancy agreement and sign the online contract before uploading relevant identification documentation. You will be asked to pay the full years rent up front unless you have a UK based guarantor. If you have a UK based guarantor, you are able to pay your rent in 3 instalments. The first instalment needs to be paid 10 days before your contract starts. You will not be able to move into the property if this has not been paid. The second rent instalment is due in January and the final one in April. In some circumstances, we may be able to offer you a 4 part payment plan, as some student loans come through later, please contact us for more information.


If for any reason we are not able to make you an Offer of Accommodation we will contact you as soon as possible detailing reasons why or with an alternative solution. If we cannot offer an alternative or the alternative is not suitable we will refund your booking fee in full via the original method the payment was made.
