Now would be the time to start sorting out your groups and people you want to live with for next year as the student properties in Bournemouth are starting to go live. Bournemouth Student Lettings are looking to get all their student accommodation in Bournemouth listed by the beginning of November.

If you have already organised your group and are now thinking of where you want to live give us a call on 01202 805060 and we will help search your next student property.


Choosing the right property

Making sure you have selected the right student accommodation for your next academic year is important as this will be your home for the next 10, 11, 12 months. So making sure it fits your requirements and needs is a must.

You need to check for any issues with the property such as damp etc. So always take a pen and paper to make sure you list things before you view any properties and then tick or note any issues as you walk round. Always ask if the furniture is included and if the property will be decorated between tenancies.


Make sure you check your inventory when you move:

Making your sure that the inventory matches the condition of the property when you move in is very important as this will protect your deposit when you come to leave. Most inventories will be detailed to a high standard by a Bournemouth based inventory clerk, but some landlords like to compile their own reports and this can sometimes be of a lower standard.


Final Monies:

Most agents will ask for all of your final monies to be paid a month before your move in date. A suggestion would be to make a bank transfer as this will give you a record of all the monies you have paid. If you pay cash to the agent, make sure they give you a receipt so that you can prove that you have paid monies.

If you are in need of student help or student advice then please don't hesitate to contact us on 01202 805060.
