Viewings of any of our properties to let in Bristol are by appointment only and must be arranged through our office, we have to give existing tenants at least 24 hours notice to ensure any disruption is kept to a minimum. The majority of our viewings during busy periods are carried out as block viewings and are always arranged to meet at the property unless otherwise stated.
Once you have chosen your property you will be required to pay a deposit of £450 (or equivalent to a months rent if this is more) plus an administration fee of 40% of a months rent plus VAT (48% including VAT,) this can be paid by cash, cheque or card at our office. The deposit is held as a security deposit against damages. The deposit is held by Digs in a ring fenced deposit account and protected by tenants deposit scheme.
Rent is generally exclusive of other outgoings such as water, sewage, electricity (excl. common supplies), gas & telephone, unless stated otherwise. Each property has separate supplies for all services. When you move into the property we will take a meter reading and advise the service companies accordingly. When you vacate the property a meter reading will be taken again and ask that you do not arrange for any services to be disconnected.
Professional tenants are responsible for making their own council tax payments. Please note that if any professional tenants live with students tenants they would be responsible for paying council tax for the whole property not just their share of it.
For those of you with bikes we offer covered storage in some of our properties. Parking permits (although in limited supply) are available from Bristol City Council in certain areas.
This will either be via Bristol City Council, or in some instances there is a private collection which is charged in addition to rent. We will inform you of the bin collection days. Please make sure that all rubbish is put into black bags, secured tightly and only put outside the flat the night before collection day. There are some exceptions to our rubbish collection service where our vehicle cannot gain access due to the road being too narrow, in these cases the normal council collection service would apply.
If we manage your property we have a maintenance team that are on hand daily to deal with any problems that may arise during the course of your tenancy. All maintenance problems must be reported to the office where a member of our maintenance team will be instructed to attend. We also offer a 24hrs maintenance service, this is for emergencies only.
Locking yourself out of your flat or losing your keys is not classed as an emergency and there will be a charge of £50 if maintenance staff are asked to attend such matters.
A minimum of Quarterly inspections are carried out on all our properties to ensure that you are happy, general maintenance standards are maintained and the property is being looked after by the tenants.
If the property requires maintenance work to be carried out on it that has been caused by the tenants and it is the tenants fault, this will be invoiced to the tenants(s) immediately after the works have been carried out. Payment is to be made to the Digs office and not taken out of the deposits.
It is very important that the flats are handed back to us at the end of the tenancy in a clean and undamaged state. A cleaning guideline sheet will be sent out to all tenants to make sure that we are all clear on what needs to be cleaned and to what standard. If the property has been left clean and maintenance free your deposit will be returned to you quicker and without deductions.
If however the property is not left in the same condition that is was at the start of the tenancy (after cleaning) we typically would charge £20 per hour for cleaning services and £25 per hour for decorating. Carpet cleaning and other damage will be assessed and charged accordingly.
