Student Room Rentals is an online marketplace for booking student accommodation worldwide. We provide booking services for students, who are seeking for accommodation and for accommodation providers.
According to consumer law you have the right to cancel your agreement with the landlord. However, by using our services to book or accept a booking as accommodation provider during such cooling off period, you are requesting us to provide our services and, as a result, you will cease to have a right to cancel, under consumer law, from the time such booking is made. You will still retain your contractual rights to cancel.
Further, if you are using our services to book accommodation, you are likely to be required to pay a 1st Rental Payment (as defined below) to your accommodation provider via Student Room Rentals (who will receive it on behalf of the accommodation provider and then send it onto them). This 1st Rental Payment is payable to your accommodation provider and therefore is only repayable in accordance with your contractual rights to cancel.
Please read this document carefully. It contains important information about your rights and obligations. In particular, it contains:
a disclaimer of warranty and a limitation of liability, which together limit our responsibilities and liability to students and accommodation providers;
a reimbursement clause under which Students agree to reimburse Student Room Rentals in certain circumstances;
an indemnity clause under which accommodation providers, which are businesses, will indemnify Student Room Rentals in certain circumstance.
You are advised to review these provisions carefully before proceeding.
If there is an inconsistency between any of the provisions of this English language version and a translated version, the provisions of this English language version shall prevail. Any translated versions of these Terms of Service and the Terms & Conditions shall be for convenience only.
