Welcome to Rivendale Estates. We specialise in providing student accommodation in the Bristol area. From 3 to 8 bed properties in Clifton and the City Centre, and 3 to 7 bed properties by the University of the West of England (UWE), we have an extensive range of flats and houses to choose from. COMING SOON - watch this space in November for the 2023/24 lettings
We have worked hard over the last 40 years to provide exceptional service and care for our student tenants. We take pride in our work and the quality of our properties. Most of our tenants have come to us by word of mouth and many have continued staying on in our properties throughout their course. Our team are professional, friendly and knowledgeable.

All you need to do is carry out a search through our property portfolio. When you see one you like, you can simply book a viewing via our online booking form, call us on 0117-9736723 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Just remember, we need 24 hours to inform our current tenants of potential viewings on any properties. All viewings are carried out on weekdays between 10am and 5pm.
All tenants will require a UK guarantor. A guarantor is someone who agrees to vouch for a tenant's ability to pay rent, as well as vouch for the tenant's ability to meet all his/her obligations under the tenancy agreement. Should the tenant default on rent payments and/or fail to pay for any damage caused to the landlord's property, the landlord may look to the guarantor for recompense. If tenants do not have a UK guarantor, the full rent will be required upfront.
Our properties are let as "rent only", with tenants arranging their own utilities and wifi. From feedback we have found this gives tenants the freedom to choose their own energy provider and tariff. We also found tenants wanted the choice of different broadband providers with a package most suited to them. However, we may also be able to offer a bills-included option for some properties – please ask us for more information.
Rent can be paid by either monthly or quarterly payments. We recommend setting up a standing order directly with your bank. The bank account details and a payment plan will be emailed to you around 4-6 weeks prior to the tenancy start date. We can accept debit/credit card payments, bank transfers or cash. First rent payments are usually due two weeks prior to the tenancy start date as we require cleared funds from all tenants in our accounts before you can move into your property.
Deposits are £500 per person. All Rivendale Estates deposits are protected with 'mydeposits' tenancy deposit scheme. Deposits must come from the tenants directly, not guarantors or other third parties.
All our tenancy agreements cover a 12 month tenancy period. There can be no amendments to contract start or end dates. On an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement, you're legally bound until the end of your tenancy period. We can however consider ending your tenancy earlier if you have a replacement tenant. This individual will need to meet all of our criteria and be able to provide full guarantor details prior to the process being complete. There is a fee of £50 to the outgoing tenant and the incoming tenant will be required to pay a new deposit. If you need any further information on this process, please contact us.
