– Landlord Guide:This handbook is intended as a guide to existing and potential property owners. It is designed to help you to let your property to students within the legal framework and details standards that have become the norm for students and Edge Hill.
– Code of Practice: The Code of Practice aims to improve the quality of accommodation available to students, encourage good practice in management and maintenance and provide an effective marketing tool for landlords who give a commitment to quality.
Student Funding is paid to students in three instalments; usually towards the end of September, the beginning of January and the end of April. It is not possible for this funding to be brought forward as the dates are set by Student Finance England.
Students who are studying on an NHS-funded course (Midwifery, Nursing, Operating Department Practice) receive their funding monthly, usually on the third Friday of each month. They also receive an instalment of maintenance loan three times per year; usually towards the end of September, the beginning of January and the end of April.
The West Lancashire Accreditation Scheme gives landlords in West Lancashire benefits and support. The scheme is operated by RLAAS, the Accreditation Scheme of the Residential Landlords Association and supported by West Lancashire Borough Council, Edge Hill University, Edge Hill Students Union and the West Lancashire Landlords Forum.
