  Q
Do I have to pay an agency fee?
  A
No. That’s what makes HudLets so special – we don’t charge any fees to students – putting more money back into your pocket.

  Q
Does HudLets make a profit?
  A
No, as with all Students’ Union commercial services, any income generated by HudLets goes straight back into paying for things like our Advice Centre. We’re not for profit, just for students.

  Q
How do I apply for a home through HudLets?
  A
You will need to complete an online application form along with all the tenants within the group. To apply for a home through HudLets you will need to meet the following criteria:

1. Be over 18 years of age
2. Able to sign the tenancy agreement
3. Able to provide a UK based guarantor OR alternatively pay the full amount of rent for the length of the tenancy in advance
4. Able to view the property internally (normally accompanied by a member of staff)


  Q
What do I have to pay to reserve a property?
  A
You will have to pay a holding fee of £100 to reserve a property. This acts as a ‘holding’ payment and is non-refundable should you withdraw from the proposed tenancy. On completion of the tenancy agreement the holding fee will be included as part of your 1st months rent.

  Q
What must I do prior to moving in to the property?
  A
You’ll need to pay your deposit, and your first month’s rent. Our online application form must be completed and photographic ID, proof of current address (a utility bill or bank statement, for both you and your guarantor), and completed guarantor form must be submitted.

  Q
What is a guarantor?
  A
To qualify as a guarantor, the person will need to be a home owner and have an income to cover the financial commitment, and be free from County Court Judgements recorded against them.

  Q
Will my deposit be protected?
  A
Yes, this will be through one of the three deposit protection schemes. You will be given details of the scheme used within 14 days of paying your deposit

  Q
Am I committed to pay rent for a fixed term?
  A
Yes, depending on the length of the tenancy you sign, you are legally required to pay the rent until the contract ends

  Q
What does ‘jointly and severally’ liable mean?
  A
Where there is more than one tenant signing an agreement, all tenants are ‘jointly and severally’ liable. This means that each tenant can be held responsible for the agreement and paying of rent and not just a share of it. Be sure about the people that you agree to share with as if they fail to pay the rent, you can also be held liable. The tenants are jointly and severally responsible for the property as a whole – and for the deposit as a whole. If damage is caused by one tenant but exceeds the amount of his or her deposit, deductions can be made from his or her housemates’ deposits – if the damage exceeds the entire deposit, ALL tenants will be responsible for the additional monies due

  Q
Who will maintain/manage the property after I/we have moved in?
  A
HudLets will manage the property for ‘Managed’ lets, and the Landlord will manage the property for ‘Tenant-Find’ lets.

  Q
Who will pay for the Utilities, Services and TV Licence?
  A
This will be dependent on the property you rent and what is included within the rent. You will need to check your contract as to who is responsible for paying what.

  Q
Will my belongings be covered by the Landlord’s insurance?
  A
No, tenants must take out insurance for their own belongings.

  Q
Do I have to pay Council Tax?
  A
No if you are a student you are exempt from council tax. A person counts as a student if they are:-
• undertaking a full-time course of education and studying for at least 24 weeks (21 hours per week), or
• under 20 and on a qualifying course, or
• a foreign language assistant
• Someone who is taking a course which leads to a registration under the Nurses, Midwives and Health Visitors Act 1979.
