RENTING YOUR STUDENT HOME SHOULD BE A SMOOTH PROCESS
- ARRANGE A VIEWING
Call into our office on Ashby Road or call us on 01509 631120 to arrange an appointment to view some houses. If you are unsure what you are looking for then our team will be able to help you. All viewings will be accompanied by a member of our team and we recommend the whole group attends the appointment.
- RESERVE A HOUSE
To reserve a house a Tenancy Set Up Fee of £50 inc VAT is payable from each member of the group. This is non-refundable. Credit cards have a 2% surcharge. Each member of the group will need to complete an Application Form, including providing details of a suitable guarantor, and a Standing Order Mandate. We also require a copy of your Student ID and a copy of your Passport of Driving Licence.
- SIGN YOUR TENANCY AGREEMENT
You will be required to sign your Tenancy Agreement by electronic signature. We will send you your Tenancy Agreement via email. Your guarantor will also be required to sign a Guarantor Agreement by electronic signature.
- PAY YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT
Your group is required to pay a Tenancy Deposit the equivalent of £200 per person. This is payable once the Tenancy Agreement has been signed and is required to be paid in full as one payment.
Paying your rent on time - All our Landlords expect that you will pay your rent on time, however, if you do not pay your rent on time and the payment is delayed longer than 14 days you will incur and administration charge of £24 including VAT which will be added to your account.
Inclusive of bills option - Some of our Landlords offer a rent which is inclusive of bills. The properties that have this option will state in the details what the rate will be and which bills will be included in the package.
Property Redress Scheme - The Student Lettings Company are members of the dispute and compensation scheme operated by The Property Ombudsman (www.tpos.co.uk) and our registration number is: R00639
