This property offers a‘ Flexible start date scheme’ where students have the opportunity to extend their start date if their course has been delayed by more than 21 days.

If canceled within 15 days of making the booking, then the Reservation Rent will be refunded back. Booking can be canceled only with written notice.

If the student fails to sign the agreement within 15 days of making the booking, then the property can cancel the booking and will not refund the Reservation Rent.

Regular Policy
 

To apply for and book, a flat or bedroom at the property, you must pay £100 to reserve the room (described herein as “Reservation Rent”). 

You will have 15 days from making your booking to sign the Tenancy Agreement. The Reservation Rent is fully refundable if you cancel your booking within this period. 
 

You may be eligible to be released from your agreement if: 

Your offer of a place at your preferred University/Higher Education institution is withdrawn as a result of you not achieving the required entry grades, you have surpassed your required entry grades and choose to go to a different University or you have extenuating circumstances that prevent you taking your place at University. 

In order to meet the criteria you will need one of the following: 

• To provide a written rejection letter from your chosen university/Higher Education Institute.

• Evidence as to why you cannot take your place.

You will be required to pay a deposit (“Deposit”) at the commencement of the Residential Period. This payment will be collected with your first rental payment. 

Your Deposit will be held under a Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme and will be used as security against any damage to the Room, the Flat or the Property (fair wear and tear excepted), any damage to the furnishings or other equipment provided (fair wear and tear excepted) and any unpaid rent or other charges incurred during the duration of your Tenancy Agreement. The balance of the Deposit will be paid to you within 28 days after the termination of the Tenancy Agreement, less any reasonable costs incurred for the breach of any obligation under the Tenancy Agreement.

It is important that you understand that when you sign your Tenancy Agreement, you are entering into a legal agreement with the Landlord, and are liable for the full rent due for the Residential Period. 

Cancellation of your Booking by Property

Our terms and conditions reflect that you are required to sign your Tenancy Agreement within 15 days of completing your online booking and paying your Reservation Rent.

If you fail to sign your agreement within this timescale we may cancel your booking, giving notice by email, and you will forfeit any "reservation rent" paid if it is outside 15 days cooling-off period.
