Do the boring bits

Once you and your friends have found your dream student home, or at least one close to the bars and action, it’s time to work through the serious stuff that needs completing before you can move in.

  • Provide all information requested; this maybe proof of address, guarantor details and references
  • Complete and sign tenancy agreement by all students living at the property. 
  • Pay first months rent deposit
  • Set up standing order for monthly rent
  • Complete your photographic inventory and sign agreement
  • Collect your keys
  • Move into your new student house.

Move in… hurrah!

When all students living at the property pay their deposit, we’ll confirm everything by email and issue the tenancy agreement. All students must read the agreement before signing, as this is a legally binding contract. Once you and your housemates have signed, we’ll send you a ‘move-in’ pack with all the official information. This will include Gas Safety Certificates, EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) HMO Licence (House of Multiple Occupancy) if applicable and proof of where your deposit is held etc.

Lastly, we hand you the keys and you can start moving into your student home and enjoying university life.
