Tenants FAQ

Which type of documentation do I need to provide before I book with Myrooms?

What does my weekly rent cover?

This is for your room and the shared facilities or common parts of the property.

How do I pay the rent?

The rent has to be paid via automated card payment on a monthly basis in advance. All details for rental payments will be provided in your contract.

What if I don’t have a UK bank account?

You can pay your rent via the automated card payment system or international transfer if you do not hold a card. All transactions should be made in GBP and not in EUROS or any other currency.

I don’t live in the UK and don’t have a bank account, can I pay by card?

Yes you can still pay with an international credit/debit card or you can transfer the balance from your international account. Please bear in mind that there will be a bank handling fee if you transfer from an international bank account and there is also a 3% surcharge on all international card payments.

Why do I have to pay a surcharge if I pay by credit card?

The credit card companies charge us for taking your payment. Most companies just increase the cost of their products to cover the cost; however we don’t want to increase the rent for everyone. Instead we charge a surcharge of 3% as applicable- we think this is fair! This applies to all international credit/debit cards as well as UK credit cards.
