Team Stint has worked to equip the houses with everything from cutlery, linens, cooking utensils and much more. If you think you something is missing, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org, please make requests reasonable (i.e. we can’t install jacuzzi’s sorry!).
Any maintenance and/or repairs will be done by our maintenance team, please make us aware of anything you know needs replacing or repair through your house Slack channel.
The Nitty Gritty
By living in Stint housing, you have agreed to our Tenancy Agreement. It’s important that you understand the T&C’s so please ask Team Stint if you are unsure of anything.
Likewise, you will have been sent a copy of the House Rules. These rules are in place to help aid a happy living environment for all – it is important you make every effort to do your share i.e. bins, cleaning up, keeping noise to a minimum and bathroom time.
We also encourage you to keep in touch with us so that we can offer a helping hand where needed.
For the duration of your time in a Stint house, it is our priority that you feel comfortable.
Your house is located in a residential area and you do have neighbours. We ask that you show respect for those around you. As you are a Stinter, you are representing Stint at all times.
Remember you are living in shared accommodation so always keep your housemates in mind.
What To Do
- Ensure you give Stint a minimum of four weeks (28days) notice.
- Request a landlord reference from Stint.
- Request an employer reference from your job.
- Keep Stint updated on your search.
- Ensure you have a deposit and one month’s rent ready as most landlords will ask for this upfront.
Where To Look
Keep in mind that the Northside (most areas) is cheaper than the Southside.

Things To Consider
Decide a realistic budget: how much do you want to spend on rent and bills.
The further outside the city, the more expensive public transport will be. Assess how much you will spend on public transport from a prospective place before committing.
Have a clear picture of what you want. Close to shops? Parks? Or do you want to stay in a student area?
Do’s & Don’ts
- Do go to check out the area and house.
- Don’t pay a deposit without seeing the place first.
- Do check what bills (if any) are covered in your monthly rent – you want to avoid hidden costs. Wifi, Electricity, Gas, Waste Disposal, TV may all be separate.
- Don’t rush into a decision.
- Do ask for advice if you need it.
- Don’t lose motivation!
