Change or cancellation of 58-61 week tenancy agreements
We understand that due to the current situation many students will no longer require the summer weeks in the 58-61 week tenancy agreements. This may be due to courses being taught online; being unable to access IELTS centres or already meeting the English language conditions of their university offers etc.
The policy on changing / cancelling tenancy agreements is:
-58-61 week stays can be amended to 51 week stays
-Students need to provide evidence from the university that the course has moved online / they no longer require the summer stay
-A new offer will be sent to students for the amended tenancy which students will need to accept before being released from the original agreement
-The new offer will be at the current advertised rate at the time the request to change is made
Any students who wish to cancel the full tenancy agreement can do so in line with the ‘no place, no pay guarantee’ or our standard re-let policy.
