The house is very new, the facilities are perfect, and it is relatively quiet. I have to take the big stairs to go to school, and I am tired all the time.

To cancel the booking please email the Residents’ Team within 72 / 24 hours of being sent the ‘Lease Agreement

It may be possible with the Landlord’s agreement to transfer your obligations to someone else who is eligible to live at the property. There is no obligation on our part to find you a replacement tenant. You can advertise your
accommodation or undertake your own search for a replacement tenant. If you find a replacement, we will need to do some basic checks to confirm their eligibility to enter into a tenancy.

Once the new person has signed the Tenancy Agreement and made the first rent payment they will take responsibility for future rent payments and all other obligations as stated in the agreement.

tenant and guarantor are then legally committed to paying the rent in full even if the tenant does not move into the
property or chooses to leave the property early.
If the agreement is not signed by the applicant and guarantor during the five-day period, the booking may be cancelled
without any penalty on our part and with immediate effect.
