Booking Info

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 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.
