Although we will be very sad to see you go, we understand that sometimes circumstances change. Our cancellation terms can be found within section 6 of your tenancy agreement and are as follows:

  • You will need to notify us in writing that you intend to cancel, complete and return a cancellation request form; please do this via email or bring a letter into the accommodation office. 
  • For those within their cancellation period, you will only need to return the signed cancellation request form and pay a £50 cancellation fee.
  • For those outside of their cancellation period, you will be responsible for finding someone else to take over your tenancy. Therefore, you will be responsible for paying your tenancy fees until a replacement has been found. Once the replacement tenant has signed their tenancy agreement, paid their deposit and are outside of their cancellation period, you will then no longer be liable for the payments.
  • If we are fully booked when you notify us that you would like to cancel, we may have a waiting list of students wanting to move into The Pinnacles. If this is the case, we will notify you as soon as we have found a replacement. Please note that this isn’t guaranteed and shouldn’t be relied upon and it is ultimately your responsibility to find a replacement.
  • Once a suitable tenant has been found to take over your contract and they have followed the steps above, we will release you from your contract and deduct a £50 cancellation fee from your deposit.
  • If you have underpaid your rent, we will require you to top up your accommodation fees until the date the new tenant has agreed to start the contract before we can release you from your contract. However, if you are owed any money due to moving out early, we will reimburse you via the account you provided; you should expect to receive this within 10 working days from your tenancy end date.

Extenuating Circumstances 

If you feel the situation falls under exceptional circumstances, meaning you need to be released from your tenancy urgently due to health reasons for example, we will require supporting evidence for this. Any evidence you have should be sent to the accommodation team via email. Once we have received your request, it is then passed on to our senior management team who will determine the outcome based on your case.
