Students



We have a wide range of properties, from one-bed apartments to nine-bed houses, located in some of the most popular student areas in Newcastle. No matter what your specifications are, just let us know, and we will use our expert local knowledge to find the perfect place for you and your friends!

Guarantors

Students renting a property through Red Ridge are required to have a guarantor. The guarantor must be a UK homeowner, and provide photographic ID alongside a completed form in order to guarantee the rent. For more information on guarantors, or to take a look at the guarantor form and obligations, just get in touch.

Rent Payments

Your first month’s rent is required to be paid prior to your move in date. After that, rent can be paid monthly, but most students pay termly when they receive their student loan. For termly payment dates and amounts, drop us an email.

Deposits and Fees

Deposit amount is one month’s rent, with a UK homeowner as guarantor. This is protected and held through the Deposit Protection Scheme for the duration of the tenancy. Our agency fee for new sign-ups is just £95, one of the most affordable around!

Maintenance

All repairs are reported by email to Red Ridge, and our dedicated team of trade professionals will ensure all required work is carried out as quickly as possible. We even have an out of hours number, where you can report urgent issues on evenings or weekends.

Safety and Security

All of our properties are frequently inspected to ensure they meet all the necessary regulations. Each one is fully alarmed, and feature double lock front doors. When you move in, we provide all students with a welcome pack, which gives advice on all aspects of keeping your property safe and secure.

Utilities

With most student properties, utilities such as gas and electric are not included in your rent price. We are happy to advise you on how to set up your accounts, and will even recommend some of the best companies! If you’d like to include a bills inclusive option to your price, just ask – we work closely with Unihomes on all-inclusive packages, to ensure the most stress-free student experience.
