If you feel that you can only express your issue via email however, then do please get in touch with your community manager and Ellie will be more than happy to help.
Currently we don't provide locks on any bedroom doors. This is because:
Our licence : All of our homes are Homes of Multiple Occupancy or HMOs. This means that we have a licences with is managed by the local council where each of our homes are based. By have an HMO we follow a number of strict rules, which include locks on bedroom doors. If we add locks this changes the status of a room which is why we don't provide them
Health and Safety: Emergencies can happen and often by having locks on doors it can cause huge problems in terms of our member welfare. By having no locks this removes this concern for our members.
Community: We are a membership community and we are looking to have an open and welcoming environment. If you are looking to live in a home and stay in your room, then this isn't quite the right place for you. We want to remove any boundaries and we feel that locks are a big part of this.
Renting with us means so much more is included with your monthly rental payments than just the fixtures and fittings of your home! Your rent includes:

This is your room and we want you to be comfortable here. You can add/remove any furniture (including hanging of pictures) as long as the room is returned to its original condition at the end of your tenancy.
Please note, each room is rented fully furnished and equipped. We do not provide any removal or storage services and there may be charges if the room is damaged.
We love all pets, but sadly we can't allow for pets in our homes. You are sharing your home with others who may not love sharing their space with animals, and we want to make sure everyone can be happy in their homes.
If there is a gym in your building it will be included in your rent. We recommend speaking to your concierge to book an induction (if you need one). Most of the gyms in our buildings have set opening hours. To find out specific opening hours either reach out to us or your concierge.
