All Sinclair student properties now include ‘Bills’ as standard!

Sinclair Properties have negotiated hard to get you the very best utility package and therefore all our properties are now only offered inclusive of all utility bills.

Your ‘bills’ package will also include Virgin High Speed Fibre* broadband, giving you some of the fastest internet speeds currently available in the UK. We are confident that this offer gives you the best bills inclusive package of any Agent or Landlord in York.

Our website displays both the Rent and the Rent Inc. bills shown separately. This is done to show exactly what proportion you will be paying for your share of the rent and what you will be paying to include your share of the utility bills. Each student pays the ‘Rent Inc. bills’ figure, split into four payments over the year, with three being collected ‘termly’ one week after your student loan payment dates.

So exactly what bills are included?

  • Virgin High Speed Broadband (with up to 350Mbps speed) or, *where Virgin infrastructure is genuinely not available, we will install the very highest broadband speed available to that property
  • Gas (where installed)
  • Electricity
  • Water
  • Sewerage rates
  • Utility service charges
  • TV Licence
  • Contents Insurance with Endsleigh Insurance covers up to £5,000 of your personal effects for each person in the house

What do the ‘bills’ cost, per person per week (pppw)?

1 bed - £42 pppw                         6 bed - £14 pppw
2 bed - £28 pppw                         7 bed - £14 pppw
3 bed - £20 pppw                         8 bed - £14 pppw
4 bed - £16 pppw                         9 bed - £14 pppw
5 bed - £15 pppw                         10 bed £14 pppw 

Can we use as much energy as we like?

No, there is a generous and fair 'allowance' of energy, so usage is not totally unlimited. The allowance for Gas, Electricity (and Water if metered) are calculated based on the actual annual usage on similar sized student properties across the UK.  Therefore, as is always the case when bills are included, the tenancy is subject to a ‘Fair Usage Policy’.

All Sinclair houses and apartments will be fitted with new Smart Meters within the first few months of the tenancy enabling you and the supplier(s) to monitor your energy usage easily and accurately.
