Student Tenants - Permitted Payments
There is no admin charge for you to start a tenancy with DH Students but we do now take a holding deposit, which is something new to us in 2022 due to the Renting Homes Wales Act which came into force on 1st Decemeber. However, once your tenancy starts this holding deposit will be taken off your first months rent. You will be required to pay a security deposit, which will be held by the Deposit Proection Scheme, and returned at the end of your tenancy should everything be correct with the property at check-out. More details on all charges during your tenancy can be found below.
Should you have any questions, please give us a call on 01248 35 35 44.

Example Tenancy Agreement
You should always fully review your agreement, and seek legal advice if you wish, before signing. These are important documents which require your full attention and care.
A guarantor (usually a parent or guardian) will agree to take joint responsibility for the rent for the property if the tenant fails to. Guarantors are required to pay any rent arrears (if the tenant does not pay) and for any damages costing more than the deposit. They will be required to go through referencing and show an income of 3.5x the rent.
We accept bank transfers which can be done in your bank or via online banking. Personal cheques, debit/credit cards or cash cannot be accepted.
