  • What is the Housing Hand student rebate policy?

    Housing Hand will sometimes offer a rebate to applicants provided no breach of your tenancy agreement; during the term of the tenancy. Only certain applicants are eligible for rebates, and the details will be specified in your contract.

    *Please note* Only students that pay their Housing Hand fee upfront are eligible for a rebate. Students must request their rebate within 28 days of the end of the tenancy agreement. Rebates are not paid out prior to the end of the tenancy agreement. Must be paid within 28 days of bank details received and to avoid money laundering, these must be the tenants account details only. Rebates are paid out if no breach of your tenancy agreement has taken place during the period of the tenancy. It will be subject to a check with your accommodation provider to confirm all of your rent was paid on time and can only be paid out once your tenancy has ended. If you chose to redeem your rebate it will reset to the original 15%.
