Student Let


Subject To Contract, Satisfactory References & The Landlord's Consent

Date: Property:

I wish to jointly apply to rent the above property on a joint and several liability Assured Shorthold Tenancy for an initial term of 11 months/48 Weeks

Rent for the property: per person, per week, exclusive of all utilities, Council Tax, TV Licence, Telephone*. Rent payable in advance by standing order, monthly or termly mandate.

I agree to pay the application fee of £175 inc. Vat, (or £145 inc VAT if an existing Students@Cardens tenant) being one of (number of) people applying to rent this property. All application forms must be completed and returned within 5 days otherwise the property will be released and fees paid will be forfeited. The fee covers the administration costs in processing my application but I understand that this gives me no contractual rights to rent the property. I understand that if I withdraw my application at any time prior to signing the tenancy agreement or if my or the joint applicants' references and/or guarantor deeds are not satisfactory, then I will forfeit my application fee. I understand that my application fee will only be refunded if, despite satisfactory references being received from all the joint applicants, the landlord withdraws the property from the rental market prior to the tenancy agreement being signed.

A Damage Deposit of £500 per person is required to be paid within 4 weeks of the application being accepted. Under the Housing Act 2004 all Assured Shorthold Tenancies in England and Wales, where a deposit is taken, must be protected through a Government approved Deposit Protection Scheme

I understand the tenancy will be managed by Cardens / Landlord *.

If Cardens are instructed by the Landlord to hold the deposit it will be registered with the Tenancy Deposit Scheme under the terms of their insurance based scheme - If the deposit is paid to the Landlord it will be held under either the custodial scheme - or the insurance based scheme - The deposit will be registered within 30 days of receipt and a certificate will be issued to the Tenant(s).
