Guidelines for Students to Help Them in Getting Rented Edinburgh Student Accommodation

By Jessi Ashley Subscribe to RSS | June 2nd 2012 | Views:

Most of the time, when a person rents a property for the very first time in his life is when he is a student.Frequently, when a person is going to live away from his home for the very first time is when he stepped in college.If you are going to a college that is far away from your hometown and you prefer to live in private flats instead of college hostels, luckily or unluckily you are not the only one in hunting Edinburgh student accommodation for you. Housing market for rental is largely comprised of students but actually what are the demands and requirements of the student tenant are not the same as the other kinds of tenants.

Before renting a particular home, try to make it sure that you have chosen the right area for you which is in easy access to your campus. Also make sure before moving in that you have fulfilled the entire requirement given under the law and also by the landlords. Once you have selected the right place, things are going to be easy for you.

What a student needs is a short term tenancy agreement unlike to the longer tenancies of families. May be a student has to live in Edinburgh student flats just for nine months or as long as the duration of their course is. As a student pocket is not big, therefore, you may also look for someone to share your rental burden.

Keep in mind, you being a student has access to certain benefits which the other tenants don’t. You are provided with certain resources reserved only for the students and not for the public. There are student unions, like there are student accommodation offices or service offices in the universities which guides the student through the process of gettingEdinburgh student accommodation for them. These unions also provided you with their services in checking the tenancy agreement between you and your landlord on your behalf to make sure there is safety for you.

These unions may also have the properties listed in their data bank that are meant for Edinburgh student accommodation. So, you are offered with choices in selection of an accommodation for you. The other benefit of these unions is to give you their assistance if there arose any dispute between you and your landlord.

In case you are going to share rented Edinburgh student flats with other students you should plan for it properly. Living with other students has its own pros and cons. On the one hand loneliness will not bother you and you will get help in your studies while on the other hand if your flat-mates don’t share your burden regarding monthly rent and other finances you will suffer a lot.

Again try to make it sure that all your friends or even if they are strangers possesses their own tenancy agreements separately with the specification which room in the Edinburgh student flats each one of you are going to inhabit. Following this very tip you have the responsibility only to the extent payment of your part of rent only. The flaw back in a joint tenancy agreement is that, when one amongst you steps out of the tenancy or is playing tactics to avoid payment of rent on his part remaining co-sharers are going to suffer. That is now you would be held equally responsible for arrears of rent, if any.

As a student you are not to be taxed by the government. Even then make it sure that you have made registration with Council Tax. Although you as a student is not going to be taxed but other co-sharers, if they are not the student might have the liability of taxes.Always try to be on a safe side.
