Please tell us as soon as you have transferred the deposit. Other people may be wanting the same room. We will then reserve you the room and prepare the Lease.

The full deposit OF £500 is always required before entry to the property

This deposit is returned at the end of the lease.

The first rental instalment is also required before entry.

The deposit is sent to Safe Deposits Scotland at the start of the lease.


Please ask us for the bank details, then transfer the deposit to the given account. You must ask at your bank to pay all the international transfer fees) otherwise we will not receive what we have asked for. TransferWise is a good way to pay from outside the UK.. Make sure to name your transfer, so we can identify you.

If we receive less than the full deposit due, we will ask for the balance when you arrive at the beginning of the lease.


There is fee of £200 for administration of our services if you drop out after signing the lease, but before your arrival. You may not, of course, withdraw from the lease after the start of the lease date.


After receiving your deposit, we will draw up a lease for the dates stated.
