Bills Inclusive Policy

Here at GLC Student Properties all our tenancies come inclusive of bill so there are no hidden costs. There is however a fair and acceptable usage policy, if you exceed the limits, or interim meter readings indicate that usage will exceed the limits at the end of the tenancy, then GLC Student Properties as the landlord is entitled to levy a supplemental charge to obtain reimbursement for the excess usage (as stated at the bottom of page 1 of our Tenancy Agreement). It is very rare for GLC to have to levy any charges.


Gas and Electricity

The maximum usage allowed per annum is shown below. If your contract duration is less than a year, these figures will apply on a pro-rata basis.
