Myth-busting – Electrical Safety installations Act 202011:19 AM, 3rd August 2020
About 2 weeks ago 83
I have a student HMO, one of the students who merely signed up 2 months ago for a 6 months contract without any deposit has contacted me today and advised that, as her University is closing due to pandemic she no longer needs the accommodation and would be returning back home as her parents are worried due to pandemic.
I am aware that, her parents are based here she is simply trying to get out of contract.
I have politely advised her that, I will not be able to release her from contract and I am able to agree a payment plan with her should she needs one. For avoidance of doubt, she is not a working student and her rent was transferred into her account by her parents. In addition, she has advised that she hasn’t any financial issues, but would simply like to get out of contract.
The rent is due tomorrow and she ended call by stating “I need legal advice and I will revert back to you”
Any suggestions/comments would be greatly appreciated.
