Reserving the property
Once you have decided on a property, you will be required to pay a ‘Holding Deposit’ which is equivalent to 1 weeks rent. This will secure the property for you and take it off the market.
In most cases, we will need you to provide details of a Guarantor. This person must be employed, based in the UK and earn over 3 times the annual rent of the property. If you are unable to provide a UK guarantor, you will need to either pay a deposit or pay the rent upfront for the property.
For our student properties, rent is usually calculated at a monthly rate and then divided into termly payments to coincide with your student loan payments. There is the option of this being paid on a monthly basis if this suits you better.
If you are unable to provide a UK guarantor or if your property requires it, a security deposit of a minimum of one month’s rental will need to be paid before you move into the property. This deposit is treated per the Tenancy Deposit Protection regulations. The deposit is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement. Please note that under no circumstances can the deposit be used by the tenant to cover rent. Once your tenancy is left, your deposit will be returned to you within 30 days as per the deposit conditions.
