The Rent

The rent for the 21/22 tenancy is £737.33 on average per calendar month.

As Unipol calculate the rent due on a daily basis, the amount due each month varies slightly according to the number of days in the month. Rent includes water charges, WIFI and personal possessions insurance.

Rent includes water rates and contents insurance for your personal belongings. Unipol bill tenants monthly for their gas and electricity usage. Meter readings are taken frequently to ensure that billing is accurate. Tenants pay a set monthly charge of £58.00 on top of rent. Usage is monitored and reviewed every 3 months. If you use more energy than you have paid for you'll be invoiced for the difference, if you have used less energy than you have paid for a credit will be applied to your account. The set monthly charge can be adjusted so it's more in keeping with your typical usage.

Tenacies at Dyers Court begin on 1st August each year and run for 12 months until 31st July the following year. Current residents are offered the chance of renewing, so long as their studies remain ongoing.
