Details

Cancellations
If the booking is cancelled by the applicant prior to it being countersigned, the Advance Rent payment will be returned.

Once the booking is countersigned, we offer a 72 hour "cooling off" period so if circumstances change, the tenant can cancel the booking subject to having not moved into the property.

From the 1st August 2024 the "cooling off" period is reduced from 72 to 24 hours after the booking is countersigned.

To cancel the booking please email the Residents’ Team within 72 / 24 hours of being sent the ‘Lease Agreement
Executed’ email. The tenant will then be refunded the advance rent payment. NB. This may take up to 10 working days to reach your account.

Once the "Cooling Off" period has expired, the tenant can cancel the booking prior to the tenancy start date if:
• You do not have a visa to enter the UK.
• You have not acquired the grades to be offered a place at the chosen university.
• You have failed to achieve the grades to continue your study at university.

In these circumstances, please provide evidence (UCAS notification/ Visa refusal documentation) to the Residents’ Team within 72 hours of being notified. Once we receive this, we will confirm receipt of your request to cancel and refund your full Advance Rent.

There are no other circumstances under which we will accept a request for a cancellation either before or during the tenancy.

It may be possible with the Landlord’s agreement to transfer your obligations to someone else who is eligible to live at the property. There is no obligation on our part to find you a replacement tenant. You can advertise your
accommodation or undertake your own search for a replacement tenant. If you find a replacement, we will need to do some basic checks to confirm their eligibility to enter into a tenancy.

Before we will accept the new tenant, your account and all obligations need to be up to date and any rent due up to your tenancy ending will need to be paid. There will also be a charge incurred (please see Fee Schedule for details).

Once the new person has signed the Tenancy Agreement and made the first rent payment they will take responsibility for future rent payments and all other obligations as stated in the agreement. Until this has happened you will remain responsible for the payment of rent until the original end date of the tenancy.

Tenancy Agreement
A sample Tenancy Agreement can be viewed on the chosen property’s website page.
Once the accommodation is selected, we allow five days for the applicant and guarantor (as applicable) to sign the
Tenancy Agreement.
Once both have signed the agreement, it will then be countersigned by the Landlord and become legally binding. The
tenant and guarantor are then legally committed to paying the rent in full even if the tenant does not move into the
property or chooses to leave the property early.
If the agreement is not signed by the applicant and guarantor during the five-day period, the booking may be cancelled
without any penalty on our part and with immediate effect.
If booking accommodation after the 1st August 2024, the time allowed for the applicant and guarantor to sign the
Tenancy Agreement will be two days.
All negotiations will be subject to contract and payment of the initially requested funds.

Check-in Guide

When You Arrive
When you first arrive, please come to Reception where your key will be waiting
along with all the information you need to move in to your room. Our team will
of course be on hand to help.
Please make sure you bring with you:
• Proof of being a student (e.g. a confirmation letter
from your university, college or language school)
• Photo ID (passport or driving licence)
Once you arrive at your room, please familiarise yourself with the location of
your nearest fire exit, which will be shown on the back of your apartment door.
Out Of Hours Arrival
If you know you will be arriving outside of office hours, please let us know so
we can make arrangements to ensure that you get your key.

Check-out Guide

We know it’s a long way off, but it’s important to let you know what will happen
at the end of the tenancy. You will need to book a ‘Move Out’ Inspection with
the Residents’ Team. They will inspect the room against the initial inventory
that you completed. It’s really important that you are present for this as if you
don’t attend, it will be very difficult for you to challenge any charges for damage
or disposal of refuse/abandoned items.
There are a few requirements for your last day:
• Your room needs to be clear of all belongings by 10am.
• You must return all keys, cards and fobs to Reception.
• You must make sure your room is clear of all of your possessions.
• Your room must be clean before you leave.
(you will be charged for cleaning if it isn’t)
Property left in the room after you have vacated, or upon the expiry of the
Tenancy Agreement, is considered abandoned and will be disposed of
immediately. Due to limited space, we cannot store personal items left behind.
Requests for extended move out times may be made in advance and will be
subject to the availability of the room. Approval for an extended move out will
be made at the sole discretion of the General Manager.
Tenancy Deposit Scheme
We will automatically register your Tenancy Deposit with the Tenancy Deposit
Scheme (Custodial).
At the end of your tenancy you will receive an email from TDS (Custodial)
notifying you to log in to the TDS Portal and agree any re-charges against the
deposit. Please do this as quickly as possible to prevent any delay in the
deposit being returned to you. TDS will then refund the full or any remaining
deposit to you.
If you move out before your official tenancy end date, your deposit will not be
returned any earlier.
At the end of the tenancy, the Tenancy Deposit Scheme will contact you with
details of your deposit return (subject to any damages / arrears charges) – it is
important you reply to this email.
