How to rent

If you want to rent one of our houses, we’ll make the process as easy as possible for you.

Fix up a visit

If you’d like to see any of our houses, then contact us and we’ll fix up a time. We’ll tell you the number of the house in the street where we’ll meet you (we don’t publish the numbers on this website – so our students don’t have people knocking on the door unexpectedly – it wouldn’t be fair to them.)

Take a look around

Try to gather up all your potential housemates, so as many as possible can look around at the same time. Mark or Ruth will meet you and show you around. Feel free to ask us lots of questions. You’ll also have the opportunity to chat to the students who are living there – if they’re in the house when you visit.

Like what you see?

If you are interested, we can give you a sample contract to take away. This gives you an idea of rental agreements and what’s involved. Feel free to contact us with any questions.

Have a second visit

It’s quite normal for students to want to take another look – especially if some of your potential housemates didn’t see the house, first time around. Contact us and we’ll fix up a time. Be aware that other groups may also be looking around, so it’s good to bring your friends to a point where they can make a decision either way.

Take the house!

If you would like to take the house, we arrange a convenient time to meet and sign the contracts. A deposit of £425 is required from each student to secure the property.

Tenancy & deposit

You will enter into a joint Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement for 12 months. Your deposit will be placed safely in the Government Deposit Protection Scheme. This gives you peace of mind.

Moving in!

Very exciting! A member from your group will meet us at the house on the 1st July to collect the keys. We’ll explain lots of the basics – like when the binmen visit, where the fuse box is, etc. But you can always contact us if you have any further questions.

Any problems?

We are available for any maintenance issues that arise during your stay. We’ll aim to get them sorted quickly – especially anything that’s urgent. You can text, phone or email us. We are able to respond promptly and we have a team of trusted, professional tradesman that we use.

Enjoy yourself!

Sharing a student house with friends can be one of the best experiences from university life!  We hope you’ll make the most of your stay – in a friendly, secure house that’s nearby to everything you need.

All the best for the year ahead wherever you plan to stay!
