Reserving Your Accommodation

Once you have found your ideal student accommodation, it is important that you reserve it as quickly as possible. Leaving it until the last minute could find you looking for alternative accommodation.

Students who are already in accommodation and wish to continue living at the same address for the following academic year are advised  to reserve their property early, to prevent their property being let to other students.

To reserve your house, you and your fellow roommates need to book an appointment and come into the office and complete our reservation form. You will also be required to provide your security deposit and administration fee and to fill in our terms and conditions form.

Each individual student is required to provide two guarantors, in order to pay the rent within our standard instalment plan, which runs in line with student loans. If only one guarantor is provided, six months rent is to be paid on completion of contracts and if no guarantor is available, the full terms rent is therefore payable in advance.

Contracts are signed and completed on receipt of all guarantor paperwork.

To make signing contracts easier for students who have returned home to the many corners of the UK and abroad, StratS’ now offer e-signing via DocuSign. This safe and simple solution providers users with fully legal documents and all transactions are carried out under bank-grade security. StratS are one of the 1st UK letting agencies to provide this service.

Please talk to our friendly and specialised student letting department, if you require any further information or if there is anything you don’t fully understand. Our team have a wealth of experience in student accommodation and like nothing more than helping our student tenants secure the home of their choice.
