How can we 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 does your deposit scheme work?

If you’re planning on being an Ocasa resident for at least 12 months, we can offer a deposit scheme to help reduce the financial pressure of moving home. This means you’ll just pay a nominal fee – generally less than 25% of the deposit requirement.
