PAYMENTS POLICY

  • A €450 SECURITY DEPOSIT IS REQUIRED TO PROCESS YOUR APPLICATION. PLEASE DO NOT PAY SECURITY DEPOSIT UNTIL YOU HAVE BEEN OFFERED A ROOM BY A MEMBER OF OUR TEAM.
  • If your application is successful, your booking deposit will be used as follows:

€450.00 Security Deposit*. Refundable after move out pending and inspection of the apartment.

*The security deposit is non-refundable when the lease is broken or terminated early.

€499.00 – Non-Refundable Utilities Contribution.  This money will be offset against WIFI provision, refuse collection, security and maintenance.

  • Payments are made in two instalments:
    • First moiety due on or before August 25th 2024.*
    • Second moiety due on or before December 1st 2024.
  • Failure to pay on or before these dates will result in your tenancy potentially being terminated.

* Please note as a result of late leaving certificate results, 1st years are not required to pay their fees until 3 days after the 2nd round offers. Access will not be given until fees have been paid and cleared.

Payment of the booking deposit, first and second moiety can be made by bank transfer or standing order due the 25th of each month.

Applications made after the 25th August 2024 will need to be paid in full within 24 hours. The booking/security deposit is to be made on application and the first rental instalment to be paid within 24 hours. We reserve the right to release the room for resale if the rental instalment payment is not made within 24 hours.

No access will be given to the room on the start date of the tenancy unless payment is received in full.


CANCELLATIONS POLICY – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

  1. All 1st Moiety payments should to be made in full by 5:00pm on 25th August 2024. Failure to make payment by this date will result in bed space being released for resale without deposit refund.
  2. If a 1st Year applicant wishes to cancel or is unsuccessful in their college application, he/she must cancel in writing no later than within three days of the first-round CAO offers. Cancellations by telephone will not be accepted. In the event of such a cancellation, a €250 cancellation fee will be deducted from the security deposit and the remainder refunded via bank transfer. No deposit refund will be made for cancellations after this date.
  3. If a 2nd, 3rd, 4th year, PG etc. applicant wishes to cancel he/she must do so by 5:00pm on 10th August 2024. Cancellations by telephone will not be accepted; they must be made by email. In the event of such a cancellation, a €250 cancellation fee will be deducted from the booking/security deposit and the remainder refunded via bank transfer. No deposit refund will be made for cancellations after this date.
  4. If any applicant cancels after 5pm on the 25th August 2024 (or anytime thereafter), having paid the moiety and utilities, a refund will not be given unless a replacement applicant is found and all monies due are paid in full. Glen Abhainn will endeavor to refill this bed space but cannot guarantee it. Failure to refill bed space will result in the applicant losing all monies paid.
  5. If the tenant cancels after having paid the first rental instalment, or at any time during the course of the lease agreement, a refund of rent will only be made after the bed-space has been resold and paid for. The cancelling tenant is responsible for rent for any period up until the new tenant moves in. We are not obliged to find a replacement tenant. If a replacement is not found the tenant may be held liable for any outstanding rent for the duration of the fixed term lease. Failure to refill the bed space will result in the tenant losing all monies paid. If a replacement tenant is found partial rental refund will be processed from when the new tenant moves in. The utilities fee will be refunded on a pro rata basis from the date of the payment of the replacement tenant. If a replacement tenant is found, once the tenant has departed an inspection of the property will have to take place before any monies due to the outgoing tenant can be refunded. Any rent arrears, damages, cleaning issues or missing inventory will be deducted from these monies.

Tenants insurance

We recommend you take out home contents insurance for your personal belongings as they are not insured on the Glen Abhainn Student Village policy.


Room Moves

Glen Abhainn Student Village reserves the right to move a tenant to another property of the same room type within the complex should the property suffer a decrease in occupancy at any stage during the academic year.


On Departure

Glen Abhainn Student Village has a duty to provide accommodation to you the student and to also care for the units on behalf of our landlords. It is expected that houses/apartments be returned in a similar condition to which they were received at the start of the year. Glen Abhainn Student Village staff carry out a thorough check on all units following student departure with a focus on cleaning, painting, inventory and maintenance. The condition in which the unit is returned will have a strong bearing on deposit monies returned and on future accommodation applications being accepted and accommodation references being issued

  • Please pay attention to the cleaning of your hob, oven, grill pan and extractor throughout the year.
  • Painting charges can also escalate so please take care of walls & woodwork throughout your unit. Each student is responsible for his/her individual bedroom. General wear and tear is taken into consideration for the common areas but excessive damage is payable by the student.
  • Maintenance damages are to be reported throughout the year.
  • Curtains – please be aware of smoke damage – smoking is not permitted indoors at Glen Abhainn Student Village.
