Lettings Information

Viewings/Lettings

Search for properties by type or number of students.

Once you have found a property of interest, you can request a viewing or ask any questions by calling us on 07711 142581 or e-mail enquiries@studentrooms4plymouth.com. All properties can also be viewed on Google maps in order to show their proximity to the main campus.

For courtesy, we need to give current tenants 24 hours notice of viewings and can usually accommodate a time to suit you.

Booking/Securing the Property

Once you have selected your accommodation, there is an application form to complete. A £300 deposit is also taken which is registered with MyDeposits. We reserve the property for up to 2 weeks after completion of the application form in order to complete the tenancy/guarantee paperwork and any referencing. During the busy month of August it is necessary to complete the paperwork at the time of viewing if you wish to secure your selected property. Properties are secured upon completion of the application form and payment of the admin fee.

Should you have any queries in respect of the tenancy we are able to discuss this with you or your parents as we wish to ensure you fully understand the documentation prior to signing.

A guarantor is required who should be UK based. If you are unable to provide a UK guarantor the rent for the tenancy will need to be paid in advance.

Rents/Payments

Rents are quoted weekly and to convert this to monthly simply multiply by 52 weeks and divide by 12 months e.g. £80/week is equivalent to 80 x 52÷ 12 = £346.67/month.

Most rents are all-inclusive of utilities and internet, except some self contained studios. Refer to individual properties for precise information.

Rents are paid termly by standing order and are based around the student loan dates as follows:

15th July1 month
1st October4 months
23rd January3 months
23rd April3 months


It is your responsibility to pay the rent on time and additional charges may be levied for late payment or reminder letters.

Deposits

The sum of £300 is taken as a holding fee and registered as a deposit with MyDeposits prior to the commencement of the tenancy on 1st September. This is registered as a group where sharing or individually if renting individually in a flat or studio. All accommodation is cleaned and inspected prior to occupation and needs to be handed back at the end of the tenancy in the same clean state.

An inventory is provided with the Welcome Pack which records the condition of the property and furniture. This needs to be checked and any discrepancies notified to us within 7 days of moving in. If you do not check this we will record this as being accepted.

The property will be inspected when you leave and provided the property is clean and free from damage your deposit will be returned to you by bank transfer.
