If you are requesting a viewing, it's probably a good idea to suggest some days and times that you and your group are available. Providing as much information as possible will make sure the landlord or agent can deal with your enquiry as efficiently as possible.
Once you have made an enquiry through UniHomes, you will receive a confirmation text and email. The landlord or agent of that property will then usually respond within 24 hours to arrange the viewing with you or answer any questions you may have.

The properties advertised on UniHomes are to be rented to a full group of students rather than individual tenants. For example, some landlords or letting agents will only accept a group of 5 students for a 5 bedroom property. If your group is smaller than the property you are interested in, we would recommend refining your search to only show properties that match your group size.
If more than 24 hours have passed since you made your enquiry, please just let us know by calling us on 0330 822 0266 or email [email protected] and we can look into this for you.
There are plenty of student properties available so it's important you sign for the best one for you.

It's a good idea to look at the advantages and disadvantages for each property as well as speaking with friends and family to get their opinions to ensure you're making the right decision! Remember, although the more desirable student homes tend to get filled earlier, you can view as many properties as you want until you find the right one for you.
Once you have found your new home, speak with the landlord or agent and arrange for the paperwork to be completed. In order for us to take car of your bills, your landlord or agent will ask you to complete a Utility Order Form.

If you have any questions in relation to our utility service, please get in touch with us directly.
If you have signed up with UniHomes, you can sit back and relax. We’ll be working in the background to make sure all your utilities will be set up for your tenancy start date.

You will receive your welcome email shortly after you’ve signed for your property but if you have any questions at all before you move in, don’t hesitate to get in contact with us.
All properties on UniHomes are inclusive of utility bills, therefore your bills are managed on your behalf, leaving you to concentrate on the more important things whilst you're at university!

It's simple! We collect a monthly Direct Debit from each tenant for their equal share, and we ensure that your gas, electricity, water, internet and TV licence are in place for your contract start date.
You can sit back and relax. You’ll receive a couple of emails before your tenancy start date to set up your Direct Debit and confirm some account details, other than that you won’t need to worry about setting anything else up.
Sit back and relax after all the unpacking! Everything will be in place for when you move into the property. All you need to do is send us the meter readings for both gas and electricity to [email protected] when you move in and we’ll do the rest of the work for you.
You don’t need to contact any suppliers, if your utilities start on your tenancy start date, we’ll take care of all of that for you so that everything is in place for when you move in.
If you have any maintenance issues with the property itself you will have to contact your landlord/agent directly. UniHomes is only responsible for managing your utilities.
This shouldn’t be anything to worry about. If you have received a letter through from a utility supplier, please just email over a picture of the correspondence that you’ve received so we can look into this for you.
As your utilities will be set up in the name of UniHomes, we are unable to provide you with any utility bills as proof of address.

It might be worth contacting your landlord or agent for a copy of your tenancy agreement which could be used a evidence.
We don’t currently include contents insurance within our utility package. This will have to be taken out separately if it’s something you require.
As students, you will usually be exempt from paying any council tax.
If you need to change your contact details, please just email in to [email protected] stating your property address and your new contact details so that we can make the changes on your account.
You must also inform your landlord or agent. If a replacement tenant has already been found, please email [email protected] with their name and email address, we will then issue an online form for them to complete in order to remove you off the account. If you haven't yet been replaced, you are still liable for your share of the utilities.
We’re sorry to hear you’re wanting to cancel. If for any reason you wish to cancel your account with UniHomes, please email [email protected] in order for us to advise further.
You will be sent a link via email to set this up, if someone is paying on your behalf you can forward this email on to them. If you haven’t received this email, please just let us know.
There’s no need to get in touch, if you’ve followed the unique link in the email that we’ve sent out, this will automatically get assigned to your account under your name. If there are any issues, we will get in touch.
Your direct debit covers all your utilities at your property, and rent payments are made separately to your landlord or agent.
This will be your weekly price, divided by 7 days, which gives you your daily cost, multiplied by 365(6) days and divided by 12 months. There are not exactly 4 weeks in a month which is why it is calculated accurately this way.
Payments are collected by monthly Direct Debit, the first payment will be collected on your contract start date, all further payment will be collected on the first working day of each month which falls on or just after the 1st of each month.
Unfortunately, it isn't currently possible to pay quarterly or choose a different day of the month.
If you need to change the bank account that your monthly Direct Debit is taken from, please just contact us by either emailing in to [email protected] or give us a call on 0330 822 0266 so we can get this amended for you.
If you are struggling to make a payment, please let us know with as much notice as possible. Any failed/bounced/late Direct Debit collections are subject to a £12 late payment fee.
Unfortunately, our system is only able to accept Direct Debit’s from UK bank accounts. You can ask someone else with a UK bank account to set this up on your behalf, alternatively you will need to have a UK bank account set up in time for your tenancy start date.
Of course, simply forward the email you’ve received from us to the person who will be paying for your share. Ask them to complete the Direct Debit by following the link within the email.
Payments will be collected on the first working day of each month, if your payment fails, you will be notified by email and text. The payment will then be reattempted in the next 3-5 workings days. Any failed/bounced/late Direct Debit collections are subject to a £12 late payment fee.
There are no allowances in place for the gas and electricity and so you can relax knowing your utilities are at a fixed cost with no unexpected bills at the end of your tenancy!

Your gas and electricity accounts will be setup prior to your move-in date, however we will need you to submit opening meter readings at the start of your contract in order to activate your account.

We require the opening meter reads to activate your account, we’ll then ask for updated images every quarter to ensure you are consuming as expected. If It appears that you are consuming more than expected and could be deemed negligent, we can inform you to help reduce your consumption going forward.
You must act immediately. Call the Gas Emergency Services on 0800 111 999.

If anyone is in the property, ask everyone to go outside. Be sure to open your doors and windows to allow ventilation into your home.
