What’s the deal with tenancy agreements?

Jul 20, 2020 | What's the deal?

Not sure what’s what when it comes to tenancy agreements? We’ve outlined what you need to know.

In simple terms student tenancy agreements are a contract between you and your landlord.

The tenancy agreement gives certain rights to both you and your landlord, for example, your right to occupy the accommodation and your landlord’s right to receive rent for letting the accommodation.

Once a tenancy agreement is signed the tenant is fully liable for the agreed rental schedule set out by the landlord. If rent is not paid on time the landlord has rights to demand this payment.

For further support on Tenancy Agreements, please visit Citizens Advice.

When signing a tenancy agreement there are insurance options you can take which cover unpaid rent and tuition fees should you becoming physically unable to attend university. Please get in contact for quotes.

Top tip: read your lease!
