MOVING OUT OR STAYING ON?

 

 

Don’t be rushed into making a decision! Some landlords or agents will ask if you want to stay for the following year, within the first few weeks of moving in, but do not feel pressured into this. It’s important for you to give it time with your current housemates to see if you want to live with them for another year.

 

Don’t forget there is a surplus of good quality student accommodation in Liverpool so there is no need to rush.

 

 

MOVING OUT GUIDE


When the time comes to move out of your current accommodation, it doesn't have to be a stressful experience. There's often lots of things to remember to do before you leave, but we've created this handy moving out checklist to help you and guide you through this process, as well as giving tips to ensure you get your full deposit back.

MOVING OUT BEFORE THE END OF YOUR CONTRACT


Most student contracts are be between 9 and 12 months.  This means you're liable to pay the rent for the length of time stated in your contract.  If you choose to leave your contract before the end then you should inform your landlord/agent immediately.  You should then make every effort to find someone to replace you in the contract by advertising your room or house to others.  You can do this through LSH on our student notice board or within the office if the property is currently registered with us.

 

 

GETTING YOUR DEPOSIT BACK               


At the end of your tenancy your landlord will inform the deposit protection scheme that the tenancy has come to an end and how much deposit they think should be returned to you. You will then have a choice whether to accept this or to dispute it through the deposit protection scheme.

PACKING UP YOUR STUFF? HAVE A CLEAR OUT AND RECYCLE


Leave Liverpool Tidy is a hugely successful campaign run collectively between Liverpool Guild of Students, LiverpoolSU, Liverpool City Council, Your Place, Bulky Bobs and The Whitechapel Centre.

 

Leave Liverpool Tidy is a reduce, reuse, recycle student led volunteering project which aims to limit the amount of reusable items going to landfill during the summer months when student move out of their accommodation.  It also presents a great opportunity for you to volunteer and get involved in a really productive campaign. For more information on the Leave Liverpool Tidy campaign in your area go to 

www.liverpoolguild.org/lltemail: livtidy@liv.ac.uk, telephone: 0151 794 6868.

 

For large, heavy items Bulky Bobs will collect up to 5 items for free. Simply go to the Liverpool City Council Website and fill in the online form to request a bulky collection.  Or visit www.bulkybobs.co.uk
 

If you don’t choose to recycle your unwanted items then you must take them with you. The last thing you want is to incur charges from a landlord to remove/dispose of any personal effects that you leave behind.

 

For further information about waste and recycling visit the council website at www.liverpool.gov.uk or contact the call centre on 0151 233 3000.
