Booking Info

Cancellation Policy

1. HOLDING DEPOSIT

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 yourtenancy agreement is an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) 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 sites 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 yourtenancy 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 Holding Deposit in full via the original method the payment was made.
