Please email or write to your Property Team explaining the reason(s) you need to cancel and enclosing official written evidence from the relevant University and/or Summer School and/or UCAS and/or visa authorities/embassy supporting the reason(s) why you cannot attend the relevant University.

    If sufficient evidence is provided to our satisfaction, you will be eligible for release from your tenancy agreement from the date of our approval of your cancellation request (which will not be earlier than the date we receive satisfactory evidence) and we will arrange to return your deposit (if you have already moved into your accommodation, this would be minus any deductions relating to unpaid rent owed (if any) for the period you have occupied the Accommodation up to the approved date of cancellation and the condition of your room/flat upon your departure).

Please note that you will remain liable for the rent until the replacement person has signed their tenancy agreement and paid the deposit, any applicable cooling-off period has expired, and their tenancy period has started.
