Viewing a property

Unipol will encourage potential tenants to view properties virtually in the first instance and to look at floorplans, images and the film walkthroughs to help with that decision. 

Students are welcome to view a property if they are very interested however, during the on-going pandemic it is important that we continue to keep existing tenants, staff and those on the viewing as safe as possible. 

Quality viewings

To reduce the risk of transmission, digital information can be used to eliminate unsuitable properties without the requirement for a viewing in person. Emphasis is being placed on providing a good quality viewing experience by showing the most preferred property.

The Viewing

  • Staff and viewers will meet outside the property
  • Staff will encourage viewers to wear a face covering when inside the property.
  • Staff will wear a face mask
  • Staff and viewers will seek to minimise contact with surfaces.
  • It is preferable if current tenants could vacate the property at the time of the viewing. If this is not possible, then the different parties should keep their distance from each other.

Prior to a viewing both the viewees and tenants of the property should confirm that they do not fall into any of these categories. No property should be visited where someone is: 

  • self-isolating
  • showing symptoms
  • is known to have Covid-19

Existing Tenants

Viewings will take place on your property if you do no plan to stay next academic year.

Make sure we have your correct mobile number so we can inform you about a visit. Tell us if you have recently changed it - housing@unipol.org.uk

Unipol is a 'not for profit' organisation, so it is essential that we let every single room in order to keep our services going. The rental income is how we fund the important work we do with students.

Do I have to be in for the viewing?

No, Unipol staff will always accompany the person or group coming to look around your property and have a duplicate key for access.

Will they go in my bedroom?

Yes, they will want to look at all the bedrooms so they can make an informed decision about if this is the right property for them.

How will I know if a viewing is booked?

Unipol will text you details of the appointment the evening before.

This might be inconvenient?

We understand that having a viewing on your property is not always convenient. However, as all viewings are done by a Unipol member of staff, they are supervised and we do ask for your co-operation. The quicker we can let your house, the quicker we can stop visiting you!
