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.
A booking can be cancelled up to and including 31st July of the year when the student was due to move in. The booking fee is non-refundable.
After 31st July, if a student wishes to cancel a booking, they will remain liable for the contractual obligations laid out in the Tenancy Agreement, unless proof of one of the following can be supplied:
1. Their UK Visa application has been denied
2. They have failed to obtain the required qualifications to get into their university of choice
3. Extenuating circumstances e.g.: ill-health, family circumstances
Evidence of a) or b) should be supplied to iQ Student Accommodation within 72 hours of receiving official confirmation.
Where the reason for cancellation can’t be proved in line with the above, the student will remain liable for the full contractual rent, unless and until a replacement tenant is found. The student is responsible for finding an eligible replacement tenant, although site staff will assist where possible. If a replacement tenant is found, the student will be released from the contractual obligations laid out in the Tenancy Agreement and any rent money will be refunded. The booking fee will be retained.
