Do you need a guarantor?
Without a UK rental guarantor, most landlords and agents will require you to pay the full year's rent upfront. We have partnered with Housing Hand who can provide you with a certificate of rental guarantee.
* Please note that additional charges apply for this service.
CANCELLATIONS PRIOR TO THE START DATE OF YOUR AGREEMENT
Once you have chosen your room, paid your holding deposit and digitally signed your agreement, your booking with Best Student Halls is confirmed. From this date, you will have to pay all amounts due under your agreement unless a replacement tenant is found for your room.
– All replacement tenants must be 18 years old or over and enrolled as a full-time student in a university or college. Where the accommodation has agreements with set universities, the replacement may be restricted to that university. Please check with your Residence Team.
– The replacement tenant must take over the agreement for your chosen room, at your agreed rate and term.
– The replacement tenant must pay their holding deposit and digitally sign their agreement before your cancellation will be processed.
– The replacement tenant, where reasonable, must provide a suitable Guarantor. The Guarantor must accept the Terms and Conditions set out in the agreement.
Once the process has been completed in line with the above, your cancellation will be approved. Your holding deposit will be retained as your cancellation fee, but all other payments made to us in respect of you upcoming tenancy will be refunded within 28 days.
The following Best Student Halls Guarantees are the exceptions to the above Cancellation Policy.
1ST YEAR GUARANTEE
If you are a prospective first year undergraduate student and your offer of a place at your preferred University/Higher Education Institution is withdrawn by the University/Higher Education Institution because of you not achieving their required entry grades, you may be eligible to be released from your agreement.
