Paying your Rent Rent is payable calendar monthly by Standing Order Mandate. A Standing Order is a preauthorised payment under which an account holder authorises a Bank to pay a fixed amount (such as a rent payment directly to a Landlord) at a specified interval. Your rent will be collected automatically once this has been set up. Your rent will be due in advance starting on the first day of the Tenancy. If you wish to pay quarterly or annually please contact us for terms. Anyone can pay rent on your behalf, so if your parents have offered to foot the bill - that's great! However, the legal responsibility lies with you. Managing the Bills With Q Student, you have the option to have bills included or excluded from your monthly rent. If you decide to sort out bills for yourself then all tenants of the property must agree to this. Upon moving in, you should then take a note of the meter readings and serial numbers and contact the your chosen utility providers to register the gas, electric and water in your name. Q Student will also require a copy of this information. Please ask us if you require assistance. If you opt for our Bills InQlusive package then this is all taken care of for you.
