Arrange a time to collect the keys in September. Rent is payable on the 1st of each month by standing order, or in three instalments to coincide with student loan issue dates.
* Within a capped usage rate on properties with 3 or more bedrooms
In most of our student properties with 3 or more bedrooms, the landlord will include a contribution towards the utilities which will include gas, electricity and water. Tenants will be responsible for any usage above and beyond this amount. Broadband will be provided free of charge.
We don’t charge any fees or ask for any advance rent payment. For student properties, we take a deposit of £200 for each tenant that will be registered and protected with the MyDeposits scheme.
Our contracts are set for 11 months in student properties. ( Just under 48 weeks) These run from the 1st of September to the 31st of July. Contracts for residential properties are periodic agreements, set for 6 months and then rolling monthly.
If you are a full-time student following a full time higher education course, you qualify for council tax exemption, meaning that you do not need to pay council tax. Occasionally we need to show the council evidence that you are enrolled on a full-time course. Anyone who is not a full-time student will need to pay council tax.
Students can choose to pay by 3 term instalments, to coincide with the student finance dates, or split the total rent into 10 instalments. For residential properties, rent is paid monthly.
The tenancy agreement has a ‘method of payment’ page with the bank account details. Payments should be made by BACs or electronic bank transfer. For the payment reference, please put your property number and street name. eg 81 North Hill.
No smoking is allowed in any of our properties. This is for the safety and wellbeing of all tenants. If you do choose to smoke, please do so outside and dispose of cigarette butts in a suitable container, not on the ground.
Your tenancy agreement commits you to paying your rent for the property for the full duration of the contract. If you wish to end your tenancy early, you will need to find a suitable replacement tenant to take over your tenancy. We can advertise to try to help you do this.
We have a small number of properties that have private, off-road parking spaces. For any parking on the street, you may be able to apply for permits through Plymouth City Council (PCC) who control this. All enquiries for permits should be made directly with PCC (visit www.plymouth.gov.uk).
