Broadgate Park- Late Payment Fee Of £250!!!

I have just rang Broadgate Park and attempted to explain that I cannot pay my Hall fees until my student loan comes through... To which they said if that's the case I have to pay an extra £250.. this is the most skankiest thing I have ever heard!

The point is- the people who cannot afford to pay their hall fees now is 80% likely that they are skint and can't afford to do so, so it's unlikely that they can afford to pay an extra f****in £250!!

All this might I add is AS WELL AS THE DEPOSIT!!

I am so p***ed off...

Make a formal complaint, I'm going to because I still haven't had my damage deposit back yet! You should definately do it, UPP take far too much money from us for such a little amount of service

This is another extra £250 in addition to the £250 damage deposit, right?

Yeah, that's what she said! £250 if I pay after the 23rd, and £250 deposit.. so £500 plus £1495.. this is stupid..

Don't accept that - 'late payment fee' is usually only £40 anyways. Even still, we'll help you out making a complaint to UPP - I'm in the process of trying to get my damage deposit back at the moment!

Exactly, it even says that on the forms, that the fee is just £40, so why do I have to pay an extra £250, that's ridiculous..

You won't have to... don't worry about it! You got Duncan on your side, and if there's anyone you want on your side, it's the president of the BPRA :wink:

funkybambino i dnt blame you for being P****d off. Surely they should try and understand. I rang St. Peters Court a while ago to ask them if they have received my Security Deposit and if i will be getting conformation of the payment. I sent it almost a week ago, and they say they haven't received anything!! Come On SORT IT OUTTTTTTTTTTTTT

I think it's ridiculous that they expect you to pay large amounts of money before you get your loan in, andit's utterly ridiculous that they're going to charge you £250 if you can't! When I was in cripps they were really understanding about it, I didn't pay them till November and all I had to do to get off the £40 was go and explain to them that I hadn't had my loan yet. Meh, this kind of thing really annoys me!

I hope this isn't the shape of things to come!

I am gonna ring the big boss man on Monday (been at work all day today), dunno if they're open tomorrow???

They can b*****x if I'm paying £250 for something I can't help.

I bet they're loving raking in loads of £250 payments from people, to feed their fat asses at their Xmas party...
Like I heard from one great man... what do you think pays for their xmas meals and pissup?! :P
I sent a letter to Nottingham Hospitality explaining that I can't pay my first installment until my loan comes through, they asked me to send in proof of my loan agreement, and that was that.
