How to apply for student lettings or a residential home

We want to make the process of securing your Bangor student pad as easy and straightforward as possible, so we’ve put together some student letting advice and a few notes on how we work with you to make the booking procedure as smooth as possible. If you’re on the hunt for some residential accommodation this advice will still prove useful for finding your perfect home.  

Five simple steps to securing your home

1  View a home that you like the look of on our website and watch the available Video Tour if the property has one. Once you have decided you like the look of the property then get in touch with us through our Contact page and give us details of the property you wish to view. 

2  Attend a Virtual Viewing with a member of our Sales team, who will take you on an online tour of the property, providing valuable insight and answering any questions you may have.


3  Register your interest in the property by submitting a Tenant Details Form and providing details of a UK guarantor, if applicable. After this point you can then attend a physical viewing if you wish to. 

4  Pay a security deposit. The penultimate step in securing your home; details of this can be found on our FAQ’s page.

5  Finally, you must sign a legally binding tenancy agreement, details of which can be found on our FAQ’s page.


What to look for when viewing your accommodation

If you’re concerned about how you apply for your residential or student letting then there’s no need to fear. We will help to make the lettings process simple and carefree. First of all, you need to make sure that the property you are interested in has the number of bedrooms you require. We have accommodation to suit a wide range of needs so be sure to explore our entire range. With the exception of studios, only one person can be allocated to a room; therefore, if there are four of you looking to share a property, you will need to make sure there are four bedrooms in the property.  

If you or any of your housemates have a car it is also a good idea to consider if there is space for you to park nearby. Some of our properties do come with parking space(s) included and if this is the case it will be stated clearly in the property description.

How do I view a property?

The majority of our properties have Video Tours available. To view this simply scroll to the bottom of the specific property page and click play. To find out more about the property simply get in touch with us to book a Virtual Viewing with a member of our team.

What is a Video Tour?

A Video Tour is a walk-through of a property, where you are guided in a first-person perspective and shown every aspect of what could be your future home. This includes everything from radiators to bedside tables, so that our customers know exactly what the property entails.

What is a Virtual Viewing?

You can book a Virtual Viewing with a member of our team from Monday to Friday, 9-5:30 and 9-1 on Saturdays. These Virtual Viewings are online viewings whereby a member of our team hosts a video call on an application that suits you and talks you through the Video Tour. They will provide you with essential information and answer any questions you may have.

Can't I just have a physical viewing?

Of course you can, once we are able to. However, to cut down on unnecessary travel for all our customers, and to save your valuable time, we request that you schedule a virtual viewing first, so you can find out more about the property. Most people find that they don’t require a physical viewing once they’ve experienced a virtual one.

How do I go about booking a viewing on a property?

We know how much easier it is to not have to plan your life around appointments and to manage as many things as you can online, at the click of a button. For this reason our viewings are virtual in the first instance, meaning you can view your future home online by scheduling a Virtual Viewing with a member of our team. If you then decide you would like to have a physical viewing we can schedule this with you, once it is safe to do so. Contact us here to make an appointment.

I've seen a few properties I like online, when can I view them?

We encourage all our prospective tenants to watch the Video Tours for each property they like and book in Virtual Viewings for any that pique their interest. Get in touch to book a viewing.

Can I view multiple properties?

We want to do what we can to cut down on unnecessary travel, not just because it saves you time and effort, but also because it helps to cut down on pollution created by driving back and forth. Please schedule Virtual Viewings for any properties you are interested in and physical viewings only for those you are serious about renting.

How many adults can come on a viewing?

For the time being we are following government guidelines on viewings so please get in touch if you require further information. It is worth noting that there is no limit on how many people may attend a Virtual Viewing and no requirement for them to be in the same place at the time of the Virtual Viewing.

What are Varcity Living doing to ensure everyone's safety during viewings?

Your safety is of utmost importance to us, which is why we have worked hard to implement Video Tours and Virtual Viewings on our website. This allows our customers to move forward with their plans to move home without having to worry about compromising their comfort and safety to do so.
