our services and fees

Home Run – Property Accreditation Scheme
Home Run is our property accreditation scheme and is primarily aimed at landlords who manage their own properties.
Landlords wishing to accredit their properties through Home Run are required to abide by the Home Run minimum standards. This includes supplying gas and electrical safety certificates and not charging fees to students. At present we do not routinely inspect Home Run properties but rely on student tenants to advise where they believe properties do not comply with the minimum standards. Once a property has been awarded accredited status, it can be included on the housing list. Click here to view the Home Run Landlord Information Pack.

How do I accredit my property with Home Run?

  1. Return a completed property registration form to homerun@uea.ac.uk. By signing and returning the registration form you are agreeing to comply with the minimum standards.
  2. Send us your latest gas safety certificate (under one year old), electrical certificate (under five years old), energy performance certificate and HMO licence (if applicable). We are able to accept certificates by email. 
  3. Submit payment of the registration fee (£40 per property). We are able to accept payment by debit or credit card in the office or over the telephone (a 1% charge will be applied to all card payments) or by cheque made payable to ‘Students Union Services (East Anglia) Ltd'. 

On receipt of all of the above, properties will be added to our database and you will be issued with a landlord reference and password. This will allow you to log in to our property portal and upload property images. We will be unable to advertise properties until photographs have been uploaded to show a minimum of one photograph of the outside of the property, one of a communal space and one of a bedroom.

You will also receive:

  • A copy of the Home Run Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement and guidance notes
  • Home Run newsletters via email
  • An invitation to our annual Landlord Meeting
