the Landlord cannot guarantee the supply of services relating to gas, water, internet facility and electricity supplies and will not be held liable for any loss or damage resulting from the failure on the part of the service provider to supply such services and which are reasonably beyond the Landlord’s control. This clause does not seek to exclude liability for damage as a result of the Landlord’s negligence;


to give reasonable notice (in the case of emergency where no notice is necessary) to the Tenant of the intention of the Landlord or its agents or contractors to enter the Room in order to inspect the condition of the Room and the contents and to carry out repairs as appropriate;


to keep any kitchen facilities in the room in good order and repair, and ensure that any equipment it provides is in proper working order;


not to interrupt the Tenant’s occupation of the Accommodation more than it is reasonably necessary;


the Landlord or its representatives may in its absolute discretion enter the Room and confiscate any article which in its reasonable opinion presents a risk to the health and safety of other residents and /or staff of the Accommodation and should not be within the Room. The article will then either be handed over to the police or retained by the Landlord, at the Tenant’s expense, until collected by the Tenant and removed from the residence. If at the end of the Tenancy Period the article has still not been collected by the Tenant, the Landlord will give the Tenant 14 days’ notice to retrieve the article and if unclaimed after such period the Landlord reserves the right to dispose of it. The reasonable disposal costs incurred by the Landlord may be reclaimed from the Tenant;


any notice served by the Landlord on the Tenant shall be sufficiently served if sent by first class post or by hand to the Tenant at the Room or the last known address of the Tenant or left addressed to the Tenant at the Room;


if any clause in this Tenancy Agreement or part of it is held to be illegal or unenforceable under any enactment or rule of law then that clause or part of it shall not form part of this Tenancy Agreement and the enforceability of the remainder of this Tenancy Agreement shall not be affected.


Notwithstanding the Landlord’s intention to repair any damage in accordance with the ANUK code, the Landlord is not liable to repair any damage caused by the Tenant unless the cost is met by the Tenant or an insurance policy (with any necessary excess being payable by the Tenant).     

For the avoidance of doubt this clause shall not apply where the Landlord has an overriding statutory obligation to make the Accommodation or Common Parts safe.


Tenancy Fee payment


You are required to pay the Tenancy Fees for the Tenancy Period specified and in accordance with the details set out in the Allocation Letter attached. The Tenancy Fees include payment for lighting, water, reasonable heating and basic internet connection as set out in the Student Handbook.


For Tenants moving into the Accommodation at the beginning of the academic year, the Landlord permits the total cost of the Tenancy Fees to be divided into three instalments payable in September, January and April of the academic year in question and on the dates set out in the Allocation Letter attached.


Unless otherwise agreed by the Landlord in writing, the Tenancy Fee is payable whether or not or you occupy the Room for the Tenancy Period specified in the Allocation Letter.


Payment instructions, due dates for payment and the amount payable will be stated in the Allocation Letter to the Tenant.




A deposit of £300 will be taken to secure your booking.

Deposits (or the balance remaining) will be refunded after your tenancy has expired, room vacated, room check completed, all keys returned and all necessary deductions made (including the cost of any extra cleaning and building related repairs). The balance of the deposit will be returned as soon as it is practicably possible.


The Tenant is responsible for the furniture, fixtures and fittings inside the Room. Any loss or damage occurring during the Tenancy Period will be presumed to have been caused by the Tenant (or their visitor(s)) unless the Tenant can show otherwise. The Landlord will be entitled to charge the Tenant for the proper and reasonable costs of remedying any damage or replacing any missing item, and deduct such charges from the Deposit in accordance with clause 6.2. 


The Landlord has the right to determine the cost of damage to its property or loss arising from any breach of the terms and conditions herein and to fairly and reasonably apportion the damage or loss arising from any breach to an individual Tenant or group of Tenants. Your liability in respect of any such damage or loss will not necessarily be limited to the amount of the deposit. In circumstances in which it is found that you are liable for damage exceeding your deposit amount you shall remain liable for any additional sums due. In addition, the Landlord has the right to levy disciplinary fines against residents who breach the Tenancy obligations.


The Tenant is responsible for damage caused by any guest invited by them to the Accommodation’s premises.
