Once you are out of your initial grace period contract all you need to do is give us one clear calendar month’s notice. We will advertise your room/house and give you a minimum of 24-hours notice that someone is coming to view your room/house.
Of course, but no more than two nights per week unless previously agreed with us. It’s always polite to mention it in advance to your other housemates – how would you feel bumping into a stranger in the middle of the night?
Some have parking for multiple cars; most you can park on the street and the odd one may have restricted parking hours. Our advertisement for each property will give specific details.
Yes, if you find someone to rent one of our rooms, once they have passed all the usual checks and moved in we will pay you £25, even if you are no longer one of our tenants.
No, but all of our properties are non-smoking inside, which includes hanging out of the window. You can of course smoke in the garden with the backdoor closed behind you… and you must clear your cigarette butts up!
All properties have the basic equipment: plates, bowls, cutlery, sharp knives, chopping boards, pots and pans, mugs and glasses. However, if you’re thinking of competing in the next series of ‘The Great British Bake Off’ you may want to add to the collection…
In this situation we try to help as much as possible. We will advertise the room for the day after you vacate and try to get someone to take over from you as soon as possible. You will of course be liable for rent until the day that someone takes over, or the end date of your contract, whichever is soonest.
We do. But we depend on your co-operation on this. Please tell us as soon as you think there is an issue with anything in the house, no matter how big or small and we will organise the repairs. If it is a structural problem or general wear and tear the landlord will pay for it, but if someone has broken something – by accident or not – they will have to pay for it. We are always very fair and will listen to everyone’s explanation first.
No, I’m afraid this isn’t allowed. You need to be in full-time employment or be a mature/postgraduate student. We will ask for confirmation from your employer or university.
