Your Tenancy Deposit of £100 is due 9 days prior to your tenancy start date and is refundable at the end of your tenancy, less any deductions for damages or charges due.
Flexible Tenancy Start Dates
We will agree a new tenancy start date without penalties or additional costs in the event that your Higher Education Institution confirms in writing that due to COVID-19 they are postponing on-campus face to face teaching by more than 3 weeks up to a cut-off date of 30th January 2021.
In order to qualify, you will need to demonstrate that your Higher Education Institution has officially delayed the start of the academic on-campus teaching by more than 3 weeks and request an amended tenancy start date in writing to the Accommodation Manager before the 31st August 2020.
Once verified your revised tenancy start date will be a minimum of 7 days prior to the commencement of your 2020/21 on-campus teaching. All tenancies will start on a Saturday.
You will not be liable for rent between the original start date and the amended start date as long as you are not living at the property during that period. The cost of these weeks will be credited to your account. For this reason an updated Tenancy Agreement will not be issued.
Your tenancy start date can be extended up to Saturday 30th January 2021 if the start of on-campus teaching is delayed until that point due to COVID-19.
A sample Tenancy Agreement can be viewed on your chosen location’s page of the website. Once you have made your booking, we allow 5 days for your Tenancy Agreement to be signed. If the agreement is not signed during this period, your booking may be cancelled. The signed Tenancy Agreement is a legally binding agreement and you or your guarantor are bound to pay the rent in full even if you do not move into the property (for reasons other than those detailed in these Terms and Conditions) or if you leave the property early. From the 1st August prior to the new academic year you only have 2 days to sign your Tenancy Agreement.
Payment Due Dates
The first instalment and Tenancy Deposit are respectively due 10 and 9 days before your stated tenancy start date. The subsequent instalments are due on 03 October 2020, 09 January 2021 and 09 April 2021.
Full Payment Discount
If you pay your full annual rent in advance of your tenancy start date you can receive a 2% discount. If you would like to take up this discount you will need to contact the team at your chosen accommodation. The discount will be applied to your account prior to you making payment via the online portal. If full payment is not received by the start of the tenancy, the 2% discount will be withdrawn. The Full Payment Discount is not available to semester or short term lets. Where a credit is issued due to a new tenancy start date being agreed, the 2% discount will be pro rata’d.
Monthly Payment Plans
Students who can demonstrate they receive their accommodation funding via a monthly bursary can arrange with the local accommodation team to pay their rent in monthly instalment
