    Just wondering how long it took for everybody to receive their tenancy agreements back after they filled in their forms?

    I've contacted Liberty Living who I sent my form off to and they are saying they can't find my details but that they're probably still in the call centre?

    Anybody have any ideas on how long it will take for the call centre to pass on details?

    Also the first rent payment of around £1000 is apparently due for me on 25th of August. How am I supposed to pay this if I haven't received any loans/grants etc yet? would i just have to pay from my own money for now?

    I havent heard back from them yet, but i think from previously reading the info we will only a few weeks before the tenancy starts. I didnt hear from them for ages after paying the deposit so not thinking they are good at getting back to you quickly.

    I had a similar problem about moving into Grand Central...they wanted like 1700 quid by 16 August!!! I have been told by my LEA that i wont get my grant until 1 September!!! So I realised what the problem was...when i filled in my form i had ticked the direct debit box to say 3 payments, which is why the amount is so large, when its easier to do it in 8 or 10 payments, bringing the amount i`ll have to pay down to about £500 which I can afford!!!
    Hope that helps

    If you are applying to a university residence i.e Dale, Rankin, Salisbury, McNair... They are kind enough to wait till around oct/nov for first payment. If you are living at Unite, Opal, Cosmo, you will need your money sooner. I had to pay mine for unite one week before I could move in.

    If you can't get the money by that date, I suggest you take the letter from the SLC detailing how much money you will be getting as well as a letter from the landlord or even better the tenancy agreement and go to the bank and ask for a temporary overdraft.

    Yeah, I'm moving into Grand Central in September, and on the letter I got it said the first installment for the rent will be debited from my account in September - after the loans are expected to come through (the option for 8/10 payments was checked as 'unavailable'). The thing with them giving exact dates is that they nearly never stick to them, I was at a different university last year and they never took the money for accommodation until two weeks after they said.

    They want the money first knowing that if, for whatever reason, you don't turn up, the room is still paid for and isn't just "going free" (on the offchance you may move in late too). But they have to be realistic aswell, as students, we're not likely to have £1000+ just sitting in our bank accounts. Most universities are good and take the money once the loans have come through, and if there is a problem and you haven't got yours when you expected it, they can come to an agreement with you.

    You have to think, the universities are getting paid for every student they have, and if some drop out because they can't afford the accommodation money being demanded before their student finance comes through, they're set to lose a lot more money than waiting a few days/weeks.
