You'll need to pay a £250 damage deposit to book the room, which will be refunded at the end of your tenancy unless there are charges for repairs or unpaid rent. We'll also ask you to pay five weeks' rent before your contract starts.
Important information: The Railyard asks you to give details of a UK-based guarantor. If you cannot, you can instead choose payment plan 2 or 3 below.
