Welcome to Just Answer, I am a practicing solicitor in England and Wales and I will be dealing with your case today.
Kindly note, I am not available for phone calls at the moment, however I can easily assist you via this online chat.
Could you please attach your tenancy agreement here.
You have to attach it here by clicking the upload icon on top of your reply box.
You can copy paste the relevant clause here-
Term and termination
Thank you. I will go through it and will be with you shortly.
Where is the duration, term of this contract?
so, it is a fixed term contract.
A fixed-term tenancy can be terminated -
by exercising Break clause
or on the expiry of the fixed term tenancy.
Or by surrender of the tenancy in favour of a new tenant , if mutually agreed with the Landlord.
Tenant remains liable for all rent payments till the new tenant takes over the tenancy , in surrender of tenancy.
tenancy agreements are binding contracts and can not be breached without having financial implications.
It is for University to determine , if they have to close the accommodation due to health and safety reasons.
You can ask your university to early release from this agreement
Is there any personal guarantor who signed it for you?
So, no personal guarantors or advance payment of rent?
Is there online classes now?
right, you with other students have to speak with the university’s accommodation or housing office, explain your situation and try to negotiate with them, and try to cut your rental agreement short, or rent reductions.
You might not be able to terminate it though, unless mutually agreed with the University.
if your accommodation is tied to you attending a course in a particular location but the course is now being delivered mostly online, you might be able to make the argument that your rental agreement has been frustrated .
yes, it is possible , all of the students have to take joint action, and collectively pressurize the university authorities
No, for the first reply.
Yes, if university has terminated some or any of the student early, then it can be used as a precedent for others.
You can use that argument that other student has been released early by the university , and now you should be given the same opportunity .
My pleasure, thanks again and all the best.
