Tenants would usually be required to provide a guarantor who is based in the UK, employed and earns 3x the yearly rent. However if you are struggling to find a guarantor contact our lettings team on 0151 724 1000 who can advise on other options.
We do not charge any fees! To secure a property you will each be asked to pay a holding deposit of one weeks rent, this amount is then deducted from your first month's rent.
Once you have signed the contract for your property you will be asked to pay a security deposit. At the end of the tenancy your deposit will be reimbursed to you as long as there are no damages to the property.

If you are a student the landlord would usually require July and August rent to be paid monthly. You can then set up a payment plan to pay in installments from September.
To set up a payment you must send over a screenshot your student loan dates from the student loan company to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: We can not accept last year's loan dates or your own estimate of when your loan is expected; only a screenshot of your loan payments for the relevant academic year will be accepted.
Your rent is due on the 25th of each month unless you have set up a student payment plan. For a full schedule of your rent and any special rent conditions please refer to your tenancy agreement.
Your rent can be paid via bank transfer or debit card by calling our office. We do not accept cash or cheques. We recommend that tenants set up a standing order
A common mistake tenants make when calculating their rent is multiplying the weekly rent by four.This is not how monthly rent is calculated. If calculated this way you would only ever be paying for 28 days out of the month. The days in each month vary therefore rent is calculated on a monthly average.
For example a tenants rent is £100.00pw. To calculate the monthly rent we use the following method
£100.00 (rent per week) x 52 (weeks in the year) / 12 (months in the year) = £433.33 (per month)
Once you have moved out, we aim to return your deposit as soon as possible.
If there are any claims to be made, we will notify you via email, as well as the DPS (The Deposit Protection Service). The DPS will also contact you, to work to resolve any disputes if necessary.
