Information for Students using Cool Pads

MOVING INTO ONE OF OUR STUDENT HOUSES LINCOLN 

It’s always a big decision, where to live. If you are living in halls you are probably sharing an apartment with students who you might not normally choose to be with. If you make the move to one of our student houses you will be able to choose the friend’s you want to share with. 

We are here to help you every step of the way from the viewing and signing. We are also available after the move continuously offering guidance and help during your stay to ensure it is a happy one. Cool Pads has choice of quality 3 bedroom, 4 bedroom and 6 bedroom student accommodation which are all centrally located.  

Here are some of the advantages of renting one of our student properties in Lincoln:

The Process is Simple:

Contact Sally on 07950 323443 to organise a viewing.

We will accompany you on the viewings to all available properties you would like to see and find the one that suits  your group best.  

You can then take a look at the sample of the tenancy document for the house you choose.  We will then arrange for you to complete a student details form, sign the tenancy document and pay the returnable deposit. 

Licensing:

Where relevant regulations require HMO licences we have them available.

Maintenance:

During July all the student properties are thoroughly cleaned, maintained and decorated to a high standard ready for the new or returning students.  

In line with the University Code of practice all our houses have the relevant Gas Safe Certificates, Electrical Testing reports, EPC Certificates.

All the plumbing is checked for leaks, tap drips and that all appliances work in line with their role.

Security:

We also have annual Smoke/Fire detector certificates.

All the doors have adequate locks.

Each of our student properties has a key safe. (If you lock yourself out there is no need to panic as you can access your student house and bedroom at any time of day or night using these keys. Other agents will charge large amounts of money to let you into the house and your room.  They may also charge you up to £100 for a new set of keys. That’s not the case with us.  You can take the spare set of keys and get a copy made.)

So you have viewed the student property and you like it.  We will then go through the tenancy document with you to make sure you understand it. You then simply sign, pay half the returnable deposit and complete the parental guarantee form we provide. Its all done and you will have secured your student property for the beginning of the next academic year.

Paying Rent: 

A major plus is our rents are very reasonable and paid termly to coincide with your student loan payments. Although our tenancies start on 1st August each year your first payment will be made at the end of September when you receive your student loan. Most other landlords and letting agents will expect you to start paying at the beginning of the tenancy.  

No Hidden Costs: 

We do not charge any extra fees. The weekly rental payment for our Lincoln student accommodation includes all the utility bills (gas, electrictiy, wifi and water).   This means you can budget accurately every term.

Fair Wear and Tear: 

We are very quick to replace any electrical equipment such as fridges, freezers, ovens and washing machines that are not working due to fair wear and tear.  We will always replace old with new.  Our fair wear and tear policy ensures that you do not get extra charges during the tenancy that you should not have to pay.                

Management:

We provide ongoing maintenance during the tenancy. There will be a caring friendly voice at the end of the phone. You will be talking to someone you know not to a call centre or someone in an office  who doesn’t care. Our electrician, maintenance or plumber will be over to sort out the problem quickly and efficiently.

So you can be assured it will be clean,  safe and decorated in a contemporary style.
