Roseworth Student Lettings are sad to see all of our Newcastle University and Northumbria University student tenants who are moving out go!  We wish you all the best with your future endeavours!

After moving out of your Newcastle student rental property Roseworth are sure you all would like your deposit back to spend on summer holidays, festivals and basically having a good time!!  We have therefore prepared 5 tips in what you need to do to help get your deposit back from your student rental property.  We will also email a Moving Out Guide.


Obtain a copy of the inventory that you completed at the start of your tenancy from Roseworth’s office.  We will use your original inventory to check the condition of the property and ascertain if there are any monies to be deducted from your bond for remedial works.

All items detailed on the inventory of your Newcastle student property must be present and within the correct location, if items are missing then the cost to replace these will be deducted from the security deposit bond.

Please ensure that you replace all missing light bulbs and crockery as the cost of replacing these items will be deducted from your bond.


You MUST ensure all keys are returned to Roseworth’s office on or before the last day of your tenancy.  The cost of none returned keys will be deducted from your deposit.   Roseworth also reserve the right to change the locks if deemed necessary and the cost of this will be deducted from the bond.

Unwanted Personal Items:

All personal items are to be removed from the property.  Do not leave unwanted personal items in the property or in any outside space.  Roseworth’s contractors will invoice for the removal of these items and the cost associated will be deducted from your bond.

Should you have any furniture items that need to be removed, you will have to contact Newcastle City Council on (0191) 278 7878 to arrange a special collection, for which two week’s notice is required.


As per the terms of your Tenancy Agreement, you MUST ensure that the property is thoroughly cleaned to a professional standard at the end of your tenancy. You will find Roseworth’s cleaning guide for all our Newcastle student accommodation at the back of the Moving Out Guide which will be sent in due course.

Window Cleaning:

If your Newcastle student accommodation is a standard Newcastle private student property and not in a block managed property then, as per the terms of your tenancy agreement, please ensure that your windows have been cleaned. Book a window cleaner in advance before moving out and provide a copy of the receipt to the office.  If we need to instruct a window cleaner, the cost of this will be deducted from your bond.

Please note that the date of the window cleaning is to relate to the date of the end of the tenancy and not the date tenants vacate the property if vacating early.

Roseworth has emailed all tenants a checkout letter that details the date and time of the checkout of the property along with a moving out guide.

Should you require any further information on the check out process then please do not hesitate to contact Roseworth Student Lettings on 0191 222 1225 or email
