Having the independence of renting your own property (for the first time for a lot of students) can be the first step in a brilliant new chapter, contributing to your University experience.
Finding and securing a property doesn't need to be daunting.
Knowing your rights as a student when it comes to repairs, contractual issues, return of deposit and safety issues can be difficult at times. We are here to make sure whether you're in University property or renting locally, you know your legal rights, what you are signing for in a contract and what you can look out for when house hunting. All you need to do is ask!
Questions to ponder...
- When choosing housemates... you love them, but can you live with them?
- Does the book fit its glossy property cover?
- Would you like us to help you wade through some contract jargon?
