How you pay for accommodation
Usually, you will be expected to pay rent either monthly or termly. You might be asked to pay in advance.
Some landlords ask for a month or full term's rent in advance. You will have to pay this before moving in. Please note that this payment may be due before you receive any Maintenance Grants or Loans. You may have to arrange finance to cover this interim period.
You pay a down payment as a holding fee to secure your accommodation when you book - you should get this back when you are resident.
Some landlords ask for a deposit to be paid before you move in. This is what you pay the landlord as security against property damage etc. It is refundable when you leave the property, provided that it is left in the same condition as when you moved in. Please note that this payment may be due before you receive any Maintenance Grants or Loans. You may have to arrange finance to cover your deposit.
