Details

Cancellation policy
Cancellation by us prior to you collecting your key
iQ Student Accommodation reserves the right to cancel your booking on notice if:

you notify us after the Deadline that you have decided not to enter into the Tenancy Agreement;
we take all reasonable steps to enter into the Tenancy Agreement before the Deadline and you fail to do so, for example, if you fail to complete your application or provide guarantor details and supporting documentation in good time;
you provide us with relevant false or misleading information;
we are prohibited from entering to the Tenancy Agreement with you because of the Immigration Act 2014 (persons disqualified by immigration status). In the case we cancel your booking for this reason, you will not be liable for the contractual obligations laid out in the Tenancy Agreement from the date of cancellation, irrespective of whether you have signed it;
we have determined following undertaking Screening Searches that you appear on Sanctions Lists and/or Law Enforcement Databases;
you fail to cooperate with any Screening Search Additional Information Request(s);
you have not paid any amounts that have fallen due (including but not limited to, your first rental instalment, any previous year's rent or damage charges); and/or
you have committed any breach of the Tenancy Agreement or any previous tenancy agreement with us.
We may also terminate your Tenancy Agreement for any of the reasons set out above, as set out in more detail in clause 2.4 of the Tenancy Agreement itself.

If you enter into the Tenancy Agreement, and you then fail to collect your key within 2 weeks of your Tenancy Start Date, iQ Student Accommodation reserves the right to: (a) cancel your booking and terminate the Tenancy Agreement and (b) re-let your room. In these circumstances any rent paid by you (including any Booking Fee allocated to the first payment of rent) will not be refunded to cover any losses incurred by us for empty unlet rooms. This provision takes precedence over any provisions in the Tenancy Agreement.

If your booking is cancelled in such circumstances, any Booking Fee you have paid will be retained by IQ.

Cancellation by you – prior to collecting your key
If you have not entered into the Tenancy Agreement, the Deadline has passed and you wish to cancel your booking, then any Booking Fee you have paid will be retained by IQ.

If you have entered into the Tenancy Agreement and you wish to cancel your booking, you will remain liable for the contractual obligations set out in the Tenancy Agreement and you may not cancel the booking unless you can provide proof that you fit any of the following criteria and have not yet collected your key, and provide the evidence required within the timescales as detailed below:

you notify us of your intention to cancel your booking prior to 1 August or, if your Tenancy Start Date (as defined in your Tenancy Agreement) is in any month other than September, 28 days before your Tenancy Start Date.

Your UK Visa application has been denied.
You have not obtained the required qualifications to get into your first University of choice
You are deferring your university entry.
Where proof is provided in accordance with these terms and conditions and to our reasonable satisfaction, you will be entitled to cancel the booking and you will not be liable for the contractual obligations laid out in the Tenancy Agreement from the date of cancellation.

All cancellation notifications must be made via the 'cancel my booking' button found in your iQ Account using the iQ app or the online resident portal or by emailing Hello@iqstudentaccommodation.com

Where the reason for cancellation is not one of the five matters listed above (e.g. you have changed your mind, booked a different accommodation, voluntarily withdrawing your university entry etc.), you will remain liable for the full contractual rent, unless and until a replacement tenant is found for your accommodation. You are responsible for finding an eligible replacement tenant, although site staff will assist where possible.

If you wish to cancel the booking and a replacement tenant is found, subject to our agreement, you will be released from the contractual obligations set out in the Tenancy Agreement. Once the new replacement tenant has signed their Tenancy Agreement and paid any rent due, any overpaid rent money will be refunded to you, less an amount equal to your Booking Fee (if you have paid a Booking Fee) as a cancellation fee. Please note that all tenancies commence on a Saturday; therefore the relevant site team will confirm your official release date from your contractual obligations under the Tenancy Agreement.

Evidence required where there is a cancellation by you

Supporting written evidence from the University or UCAS to confirm deferral
In these circumstances, any Booking Fee will be retained as a cancellation fee.

Cancellation by you after date of key collection or commencement of Tenancy Start Date - Tenancy Takeover
Once you have collected your key or the Tenancy Start Date has passed, the only way to release yourself from the Tenancy Agreement is to find a replacement tenant who will take on the full contractual obligations under the Tenancy Agreement. If you wish to end your tenancy early and have found a replacement tenant, we will, acting reasonably, consider terminating your tenancy and entering into a replacement tenancy with a new occupier (a "Tenancy Takeover"). We will only consider Tenancy Takeovers in the period starting one month after your Tenancy Start Date and two months before your Tenancy End Date ("Permitted Period").

If we approve a Tenancy Takeover during the Permitted Period, you will pay any rent arrears before we release you from your Tenancy Agreement. Such release shall be effective from the start date of the replacement Tenant's new Tenancy Agreement.

Once the new replacement tenant has signed their Tenancy Agreement paid any rent due and moved in, any overpaid rent money will be refunded to you within 28 days of the replacement Tenants new Tenancy Agreement, less an amount equal to your Booking Fee (if you have paid a Booking Fee) as a cancellation fee. If you have occupied the Room prior to this, the cost to prepare the Room for the replacement Tenant will also be charged, and deducted from any refund due (please note that all tenancies commence on a Saturday).

Student Accommodation in London

When is the best time to look for student rooms in London?

The best time to look for the best student housing in London starts in May, although there will be student accommodation available all year round. But this is when landlords and London student accommodation providers begin advertising available properties for the upcoming academic year. First-year and international students generally start looking in January for student halls or shared housing in London. It'll be better to start your search as early as possible, ideally six months in advance, to have a wider selection of international student accommodation options and to secure the best deals. Start early if you want to book affordable accommodation in London!
