YOU ASK, WE ANSWER!

Tenant FAQs

Are bills included?
If you opt-in for the bills-inclusive package, here’s what is included in the price:  
  • Water
  • Gas
  • Electric
  • Broadband
  • Content Insurance
Are pets allowed in the accommodation?
If you want a pet at your home, you will need to send a written email so we can forward it to the landlord. We will endeavor to respond within 5 working days with a response.
Can I extend my lease if needed?
We always give current loc8me tenants priority to sign for their property. 2 weeks before advertising your home, we check to see if you would like to live with us for another year!
Can someone live with me in a 1-bedroom property or studio?
In most cases, yes! Please speak with a member of staff to find out if the property you’re interested in allows dual-occupancy.
Do I have to pay a deposit?
Most of our student houses are £150 per person. This is due upon signing the contract and covers any damages, arrears or over-usage of your utilities incurred at the end of the tenancy.
Do I need a guarantor?
Each tenant will need a UK based guarantor that is either a UK homeowner or earns 5x the sum of an individual’s rent.
I am a student, do I pay council tax?
If you are a full time student throughout your whole tenancy, you are exempt from paying council tax.
I don’t understand the Tenancy Agreement, what should I do?
Don’t sign an agreement that you don’t understand. Please reach out to your local loc8me team to assist or speak with your university.
I have a maintenance issue, what do I do?
If you have any maintenance issues, please report this to us using the Book maintenance button.
Is there a utility cap?
We offer a generous utility cap for all of our properties. The cap varies on the amount of bedrooms within the property. To find out further details, please contact your local branch.
What happens if I don’t have a guarantor?
In some cases, landlords are willing to accept an up-front payment instead of a guarantor. An alternative option is to use a guarantor service that will act as a guarantor on your behalf for a fee.
What happens if I want to be released from my tenancy agreement?
If you want to be released from your tenancy agreement, please contact your local branch to confirm this. To be replaced on the tenancy agreement, there will be a £50 fee. Tenants in most cases will remain liable until a replacement tenant is found. We will assist you in finding someone to replace you on the tenancy by conducting viewings, advertising the property and organising the paperwork. It remains the responsibility of the tenant to find a replacement, however we will be here to assist.
What is the process for applying for accommodation?
It's as simple as 1,2,3...
  1. Enquire about one or more properties that you're interested in viewing.
  2. Attend the viewing and see your next future home in person
  3. Request a contract for the property. This would require us to know all the tenant's first name, email and phone number.
What types of accommodation do you offer?
We have a range of properties, from 1-bedroom studios to 19-bedroom mansions. Explore our range
When is rent due?
The majority of our contracts consist of paying quarterly, in line with student finance. If you would like a different rent schedule, please get in contact with one of our members of staff, who will be happy to assist.
