    Cancellation Policy 2024/2025


    On making your booking with CRM Students you will be asked to pay a Holding Deposit. Payment of the Holding Deposit constitutes your acceptance that the Holding Deposit is retained to secure your room in accordance with these terms and conditions. You agree by us holding a deposit that the deadline to conclude the Tenancy Agreement following the receipt of the Holding Deposit fee shall be 14 days thereafter, or any other period agreed by us (the "deadline"). By entering into the Tenancy Agreement your Holding Deposit converts to your refundable Security Deposit. If your tenancy agreement is an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) in England or an Occupational Lease in Wales, it will be protected in an independent government approved tenancy deposit protection scheme, such as the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS). Unless otherwise stated on the site’s web page, your Security 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. By paying your Holding Deposit, you give us express consent to use the details provided by you to undertake searches against sanction lists maintained by the government of the United Kingdom, United States, and other countries we choose including those maintained by the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). This will not affect your rights and/ or our obligations to you under the Data Protection Act 2018. You have the right to ask us to not undertake such searches, but in doing so we will not be able to progress your application. CRM Students will make relevant checks to confirm your place at university and will then make you an Offer of Accommodation where you will receive your online Tenancy Agreement via the Student Portal. The Tenancy Agreement sets out the full terms and conditions under which you agree to rent a room with the Landlord, your guarantor, and CRM Students Limited as Agent. You will need to log into your account, check your details, read 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 can pay your rent in 3 or 4 instalments. The first instalment needs to be paid 5 weeks 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 September, the third in January and the final one in April. 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 Holding Deposit in full via the original method the payment was made.


    If you choose to cancel your booking with CRM Students, you have 14 calendar days after receiving the original Accommodation Offer to do so and get a full refund of the Holding Deposit paid. If you have made your booking less than 14 days before your scheduled check-in date, you may cancel your booking until the earlier of (a) 14 days after receipt of the Accommodation Offer email and (b) the Tenancy Start date on your Tenancy Agreement. You may cancel your booking by sending an email to the relevant Accommodation Office email address listed on the individual sites contact details on www.crm-students.com. CRM Students will refund your Holding Deposit within 7 calendar days of cancellation. If you cancel your booking after the cooling off period has expired, you will not get your Holding Deposit returned to you and you, and your guarantor if reasonable, will be required to meet the obligations set out within the Tenancy Agreement.


    The Landlord and CRM Students reserve the right to not return your Holding Deposit and cancel your booking on notice if:
    3.1 We take all reasonable steps to enter into the Tenancy Agreement before the deadline and you fail to do so, for example, if you fail to complete your application or provide guarantor details and supporting documentation in good time;
    3.2 You provide us with relevant false or misleading information; and/or 
    3.3 We are prohibited from entering to the Tenancy Agreement because of the Immigration Act 2014.


    If you have entered into the Tenancy Agreement and you cancel your booking after the cooling off period has expired, we will release you from the contract up to and including 23rd August 2024 where you meet the following criteria and can provide sufficient evidence: If you are a first-year prospective undergraduate student and your offer of a place at your preferred University/Higher Education institution is withdrawn because of you not achieving the required entry grades or you have surpassed your required entry grades and choose to go to a different University.

    To meet the criteria, you will need:
    o To provide a written rejection letter from your chosen university/higher education institute within 72 hours of your exam results being published
    o To provide a copy of the acceptance letter from your new university. Where proof is provided in accordance with these terms and conditions and to our and the landlords reasonable satisfaction, you will be entitled to cancel the booking and you will not be liable for the contractual obligations laid out in the Tenancy Agreement from the date of cancellation.

    Failure to obtain a UK Visa 

    If you fail to obtain a UK Visa before the start date of your tenancy, we will cancel your Tenancy Agreement and refund any rent payments made, so long as you provide within 72 hours of receiving your official confirmation:
    • Supporting official evidence that your Visa was declined.
    • Written confirmation that you wish to cancel your booking.

    Cancellation for any other reason

    If you have entered into the Tenancy Agreement and you wish to cancel your booking after the cooling off period has expired and you do not fit into our eligible criteria above, you will not get your Holding Deposit returned to you, and you and your guarantor, will be required to meet the obligations set out within the Tenancy Agreement regardless of whether you have collected your keys.
    If you cancel your booking and can find an eligible replacement tenant, subject to our agreement, you will be released from the contractual obligations as set out in the Tenancy Agreement. Any overpaid rent will be refunded to you, less an amount equal to your Holding Deposit as a cancellation fee. The site team will confirm your official release date.
