Guarantor Refusing to SignWatch this thread
Student life, in partnership with UEA
You are in your own position to negotitate with the land-lord. The power isn't all just in their hands.
I'd be very careful before comitting to a contract, because these are legally binding, so you want to make sure the terms are acceptable to you.
There are tennancies available without guarntors.
The private student housing market can take advantage of students lack of experience. They want your money. They may pressure people into signing contracts, because otherwise you'll "Lose the house" However, in a place like Manchester, the availability of accommodation will be massive.
Personally, I've found private renting such a hassle, I'm gathering a group of friends together and just getting the same flat in halls with each other instead
Fantastic, thank you very much for your help. Glad to hear there are people out there with similar experiences as it doesn't half feel like I'm the only one with the cautious parents. I think if it comes down to it I'll suggest the double deposit resolution as its frustrating being at the behest of my parents. Thank you very much for your help though and sorry to hear that you've found your experience to be so frustrating you've had to opt for halls.
