faq-icon-faq_9

What should I do on my Check out day?

Here you have some tips you have to follow in order to avoid check out penalties:

-Give the keys back with the tag to identify them.

-You have to check the room. Start from the mattress: the cover clean and dried on the mattress at the check out moment (not in the washing machine or on the rack).

-The room must be clean. Do not forget to sweep and clean the floor. Do not forget to clean under you bed! Clean the furniture of the room (inside the closet and in the drawers, the dust on the furniture, etc.)

-The light bulb must work correctly at your check out moment. Otherwise, the price will be of 5€ for each one. If you want to change a bulb, but you don't know the model to buy it, don't hesitate to contact your flat manager.

-Get the trash out and clean the bin.

-Don't leave any kind of personal belonging (such as pillows, duvets, etc.) or personal furnitures.

-Put the cutlery in your room (big dish, small dish, deep dish, glass, cup, spoon, fork, knife, teaspoon). Make sure they have the number of your room.

Payments and Discounts

faq-icon-faq_10

How can I pay my rent?

Most of the tenants pay their rent online by card or PayPal. You can also spay the rent in the office by cash or credit card. If you prefer, you can also pay by bank transfer.

faq-icon-faq_11

This month I'll pay later.

Thank you for telling us! Do not forget that we can just give you 5 more days to pay. After this period, we will charge you with the cash penalty for the payment delay. Do not forget to send us the receipt of the payment once you achieve to pay the rent and the bills.

faq-icon-faq_12

Why do I have to pay the bills if I am not living in the flat anymore?

As you can read on the bill details, the expenses refer to the previous period, before than yor check out. You can download the complete bill document on your online account. You always pay just the amount corresponding to the days you actually lived in the flat.

faq-icon-faq_13

Why did my flamate pay a lower amount of the bill expenses?

Each tenant pay the bills depending on the days he/she stays in the flat. If your flatmate gets in the flat after you do, or he/she gets out before than you, than his/her the amount is lower.

faq-icon-faq_14

Why is the bill so expensive this month?

The amount of the bill represents exactly how the tenants use the service; therefore, if it increases you might talk to your flatmates about this irregular consumption of energy. You can download the complete bill document on your online account (the total is divided into all the flatmates). You always pay just the amount corresponding to the days you actually lived in the flat (considering check in and check out dates).

faq-icon-faq_15

Why haven't I received my deposit back yet?

As written in the contract, we have 60 days after the check out date to give you the deposit back. If you haven't received it yet, it means that we are already waiting for some bills of your flat. In case the bills do not arrive within 60 days, we will estimate the average expenses of the consumption in your flat and you will receive an email to confirm the bank account number for the transfer of your deposit.

faq-icon-faq_16

My study period will end before I thought and I want to interrupt my contract before the established date.

Keep in mind that the contract length can't be changed once you sign the contract; you can just change the check out date. Get a look at the type of your contract and read the terms and conditions, in order to check if you have the option to find a substitute or you lose the deposit for early check out.

If your contract gives you the chance to find a substitute, the new person has to sign a new contract with us (the minimum length is 3 months) and then you can have your deposit back.

faq-icon-faq_17

How can I pay online?

You can pay logging in your online account here. To log in you need your ID and password that we automatically send you by email on the check in date (always check also in your Spam box and if you can't find it, please contact us).

We will send someone over as soon as possible to fix the problems. 

faq-icon-faq_25

We run out of hot water.

Remember that the flat has an electric water heater, that works by accumulating water. Therefore, once the volume of the tank heats up, you can use this quantity of water and as the cold water gets in the heater, it needs a while to get warm. Probably, some of your flatmates had a shower before you and you need to wait a little bit in order to make the water warm again.

faq-icon-faq_26

The light bulb in my room doesn't work.

Our maintenance service does not cover damaged bulbs for each tenant's room. If the ceiling in your room is very high, we can send someone to replace it, but you should buy it and let it in your room, so that the maintenance staff can fix it. Send us a picture of the current bulb in your room and we will let you know which one you have to buy.

House rules

faq-icon-faq_27

What are the basic rules in the shared flats?

The most important for us is that there is a good atmosphere in the house. Basic rules are: no parties, no smoking and no pets. * Hosting parties (in the rooms or apartments) is strictly forbidden and it can cause the termination of the contract between the tenant and the company.

faq-icon-faq_28

Can I have friends and family over?

You can invite friends or family to stay over in your flat. The only conditions are that the visitors sleep in your room, that you inform your flatmates and that it is for a short period of time.

faq-icon-faq_29

Can I furnish my room?

All of our rooms have a bed - single or double -, a wardrobe, a desk and a chair. You can decorate your room as you want and fill it with all you need, but be careful not to damage anything (furniture, paint, etc.). If you want to buy an extra piece of furniture, please let us know beforehand.
