We’ll be sorry to hear that you no longer require our accommodation! Please inform our office of this decision via email, so we can send you the Tenant Change Over Procedure.
The Tenancy Agreement is legally binding, therefore, you must continue with all payment obligations until the tenancy ends. Or, find another student to take over your tenancy (with the consent from the other tenants, if applicable).
Once you found a potential tenant, they must sign a new Tenancy Agreement along with the other tenants in the property and pay the deposit and/or rent. You will be released from the contract once all documentation and payments have been completed.
Please be aware, there will be a £50 administration fee paid by the tenant vacating the property, as stated in the Tenancy Agreement. This will be deducted from the deposit held on file and the rest refunded back to you. If you have taken a bills package, please refer to the terms of your bills contract for any other charges that may apply.
Important: Drake & Co/your Landlord are unable to facilitate a tenant changeover if your tenancy has less than six months until the end date. For example: if you have signed a Tenancy Agreement for 1st July 2023-30th June 2023, the latest we can complete a tenant swap over is 1st January 2023. If you are unable to find a tenant by this time, or wish to end your tenancy early after this e.g. two months prior to the tenancy end date, we are unable to accommodate this request and you will be required to continue with all obligations until the end of the tenancy.
