Renting a Property

This is the Process for renting a property

  1. Find a group amongst your friends (sometimes we do have individual rooms available so if looking for a room do contact us).
  2. Choose a couple (3 maximum) of houses on our housing list.
  3. Email us the houses that you would like to view (with a time and date good for your group) to arrange a viewing.
  4. Decide on a house (Read all the details /rents /what is included /length of contract etc).
  5. Complete an Application Form.
  6. Commit to your booking by paying an Application Fee and returning the Application Form.
  7. Sign your Tenancy (Guarantors to sign where needed).


To View a Property:

  1. We only rent our properties to whole groups. When you book a viewing appointment you will need your group already arranged.
  2. Book at least 24 hours in advance of the viewing, so that we can give existing tenants adequate notice.
  3. Appointments will be booked on a first come, first served basis and will be accompanied by a Key10 Lettings representative.
  4. Viewing times are Monday to Saturday, 11.00am to 7.00pm
  5. A maximum of 3 properties can be viewed in one block.
  6. Email us on  with the houses you would like to view and a few days and times your group is available.

General information:

Most agreements for student housing are joint tenancy agreements, meaning you will all be jointly responsible for the house and the rent. Please think twice about signing a contract with someone who is likely to cause problems.

You don’t want in your group the person who never does the washing up, can’t ever pay their share of the rent, and is likely to put their foot through the TV when back from their wild night out.
