How can we help?

We know that moving homes is a big decision and you will have lots of questions. Here are a handful of those we get most commonly asked, however, if you need to know something we've missed, simply get in touch with us and we'll be more than happy to help.

What fees are involved?

We don’t charge any admin fees, ever. If a particular property is highly sought after we may ask for a £50 holding fee but this is then taken off your first month’s rent. The only other payment is the deposit. If you’ve opted for the standard terms, this equates to one month’s rent.

What bills are included?

This depends on your choice of home. If you're opting for one of our traditional rental properties, none of the bills will be included in your rent. If, however, you're interested in one of our house in multiple occupation (Flat Share) offerings, the rental price will include gas, water, electric, internet and Council Tax bills.

How do you match people in your Flat Share properties?

If you’re renting a property under our Flat Share model, you’ll be sharing part of your home with someone else. We know that your housemate is one of the biggest factors when choosing a new home, so we take every effort to make sure you’re partnered with someone suitable. We take gender, age and other factors into account, as well as having a chat with you about the type of person you’d like to live with.
