UK GBP Payments via Debit Card

To meet PSD2 regulations our payment system charges a flat fee of £1.50 to all tenants when the tenant pays booking fees, deposits or non-automated rent instalments via our online portal provider (StuRents) from UK, EU EEA via debit card. Non-GBP Payments via Debit Card Our payment system charges a flat fee of £1.50 and card fee (up to 2%) to all tenants when the tenant pays booking fees, deposits or non-automated rent instalments via our online portal provider (StuRents) outside of the EEA.

Cloud Student Homes does not accept cash payments, credit cards or cheques. Debit card payments cannot be taken over the phone, or at the accommodation reception. It is the tenant’s responsibility to ensure funds are available to cover rental amount(s) in line with published payment terms. we strongly recommend that you apply for Student Finance well in advance if you are relying on this to cover rental amount(s). Non-payment will be treated in line with the Cloud Student Homes debt collection procedure (details of which are available on request).

Payment in Full

This will be taken on 9 August, or if booked in or after August, prior to the AST start date. 

Payment in Instalments (requires a UK Guarantor) 

In order to reserve a room with us and pay in instalments, you are required to provide a qualified UK Guarantor. A Guarantor is a responsible person who agrees to pay any outstanding rent and associated rent recovery costs for the tenant for whom they are acting as Guarantor. The agreement is a legal document and should not be signed lightly. Providing a Guarantor is common practice in the UK and provides Cloud Student Homes with the security and knowledge that the rent will be paid in full. Cloud Student Homes reserves the right to reject nominated Guarantor applications if the requested information is not provided and the nominated Guarantor does not meet the minimum requirements. The minimum requirements for a Guarantor are: UK resident Homeowner In full-time employment (earning a minimum of 30 [thirty] times the tenant’s monthly rent) Housing Hand (a third-party company) can act as your guarantor if you do not have a qualified UK Guarantor. The Housing Hand guarantor service can be selected during your tenancy application.
