Series of issue surrounding accommodation were been raised, which include agency, caretakers, landlords and students.
Some Agents (Students and non students) have been noted to be carrying out their work in an illegal manner hereby duping fellow individuals. Also the having of 4-5 agents on a single house and collecting different high agent fee has made accommodation price in the community at a high state. Stakeholders in the meeting were not against students or non students being an agent but it was noted that anyone who claims to be an agent must be duly registered under a legalised association. Anyone caught in the act of agency and not duly registered will be subjected to the law.
It was also noted that the leasing of hostel by agents, caretakers or landlords without giving out the agreed room or rooms at the due/agreed time will be subjected to the law. And also each hostel owner should have a security and welfarism contribution to the community.
Issuing of receipts and collection of receipt immediately after making a payment is emphasized to be important as it was made known that some students collect hostel accommodation at high price and still do not collect receipt. When issues arises, they claim they paid a certain price without evidence of payment from both the student and the agent/caretaker/landlord.
In view Of The above update
We the Students Union Executives hereby beseech our Students to comply with doing what is right. To be security conscious, get registered if involved in house agency, collect receipts/ written documents when involved in money transactions, avoid getting involved in any form of misconduct and quickly report any form of case to us.
