Once a date and time have been agreed, individual students can travel to their university accommodation to pick up their belongings. The AberSU Housing Fair in mid-November is another great opportunity for you to start a conversation with local providers and find more information on how to find the perfect accommodation. We carefully check who is invited and ensure that all participants are registered with Rent Smart Wales. Our study advisor will also provide you with advice and guidance to inform you of your rights and obligations regarding rental contracts, bills, security, energy savings and much more. An offer of accommodation will be sent to you once you have met all the academic requirements listed in your study offer at Aberystwyth University. It`s important to make sure that no matter who you use, you make sure they`re licensed with Rent Smart Wales. This mandatory registration system, required by the Housing (Wales) Act, was introduced in 2016 and all property leased in Wales must be registered with Rent Smart. Rental agreements will often ask you to behave “like rent.” This includes, in particular, the payment of rent as agreed, the maintenance of the property and the declaration of defects, the payment of electricity bills as agreed in the contract and compliance with all other fair conditions, as stipulated in the rental agreement. Christina Fraser, Chief Inspector of Dyfed Powys Police, said: “The Welsh Government`s rules clearly state that travelling to retrieve property from student shelters is permissible and appropriate if this cannot be postponed and must comply with the terms of the accommodation contract. Refundable at the end of the lease agreement, unless there is residue or damage. Never pay money until you are satisfied with the property and have signed a lease. If you pay and then change your mind about taking charge of the property, it can be difficult to get the money back.
Always pay your deposit and all fees by check or debit/credit card and receive a receipt showing the amount paid and its coverage. Keep this safe with a copy of the lease, so that it is not lost. All promises made at the time of the visit, whether it is the reorganization of a space, the entertainment system you have always dreamed of or other property complements should be included in the rental agreement with an agreed deadline for completion. Make sure you like to reside in the property if any additions, improvements or repairs you were promised are not done. . . .
