Have you lived in house that had loads of problems, which students should avoid at all costs? Or have you lived in a house with a helpful and supportive landlord, who you would like to promote to other students?
Either way, your Students’ Union believes that you should have more information before signing up to a property. Undeb Bangor are collaborating with Marks Out Of Tenancy, a review platform where students can openly share their rental experiences.
You are able to rate your landlord and/or letting agent, the house you lived in, and the location of the house. Future students can then use this information to find accommodation that is suitable for them.
At Undeb Bangor, we think it is vital that students are given honest and up to date feedback before signing a contract.
That is why we have joined other Students’ Unions across the UK, including Oxford, Brighton and Newcastle, in providing you with a trustworthy reviewing platform.
‘’One of the reasons I chose to stand as a Sabbatical Officer was to try and improve the housing situation in Bangor. I have heard too many stories of students signing up for a house before finding out there are major problems. By using Marks Out Of Tenancy, we are providing a practical way of ensuring students can access honest feedback, from other students, before signing a contract’’ – Mark Barrow, Vice President for Education.
You can share your rental experience on https://www.marksoutoftenancy.com/. Together, we can make renting more honest and open across Bangor.
