Booking Info

Updates To Policy
 

CANCELLATIONS PRIOR TO THE START DATE OF YOUR AGREEMENT

Once you have chosen your room, paid your holding deposit and digitally signed your agreement, your booking with Nido Student is confirmed. From this date, you will have to pay all amounts due under your agreement unless a replacement tenant is found for your room.

– All replacement tenants must be 18 years old or over and enrolled as a full-time student in a university or college. Where the accommodation has agreements with set universities, the replacement may be restricted to that university. Please check with your Residence Team.

– The replacement tenant must take over the agreement for your chosen room, at your agreed rate and term.

– The replacement tenant must pay their holding deposit and digitally sign their agreement before your cancellation will be processed.

– The replacement tenant, where reasonable, must provide a suitable Guarantor. The Guarantor must accept the Terms and Conditions set out in the agreement.

Once the process has been completed in line with the above, your cancellation will be approved. Your holding deposit will be retained as your cancellation fee, but all other payments made to us in respect of you upcoming tenancy will be refunded within 28 days.

The following Nido Student Guarantees are the exceptions to the above Cancellation Policy.

1ST YEAR GUARANTEE

If you are a prospective first year undergraduate student and your offer of a place at your preferred University/Higher Education Institution is withdrawn by the University/Higher Education Institution because of you not achieving their required entry grades, you may be eligible to be released from your agreement. You may also be eligible to be released from this agreement if you are a prospective first year undergraduate student and you choose to go to a different University because you have exceeded your expected grades. To apply to be released from this agreement in the circumstances referred to above, you will need to supply us with a copy of:

– A written rejection letter from your chosen university/college or UCAS or a screen shot of your UCAS status which confirms that the required results were not achieved; or

– A copy of the proof of acceptance of your new university by UCAS adjustment.

These document(s) must be received by us within 7 calendar days from the date your results are published. Please email the documentation to your Residence Team. On receipt of the required documentation, it will be verified and, provided we are satisfied, we will cancel your agreement and refund any deposit or advance rent paid in full.

NO VISA GUARANTEE

If you fail to obtain a UK Visa before the start date of your tenancy, we will cancel your agreement and refund your deposits and any rent payments made so long as you provide the following supporting documentation 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.

Regular Policy

Yes, if you book today you have up until 31 of July 2021 to cancel as part of our extended cancellation policy. This policy only applies for extenuating circumstances that hinder your ability to attend your University or College due to Covid-19 or other factors.

The Landlord may cancel, if you do not provide the required documents before the check-in, or pay the rent. Deposit will not be refunded and you will still be liable to pay any rent due.
