Booking Details

Cancellation Policy

You can cancel your application up to 14 days after the date your booking is confirmed (the Initial Cancellation Period). For bookings made from 1st August to 30th September, the Initial Cancellation Period reduces to 7 days. As confirmed in your agreement, we will refund the full security deposit.

Please note, 20 will be deducted from the refunded amount to cover international bank charges for deposit refunds made to non-UK banks under these circumstances.

If you cancel your booking after those 14 days, you remain liable for the weekly rent (for each and every week or part week) until you are able to find another tenant that is acceptable to Homes for Students and we are able to re-let the room. The replacement tenant must be over the age of 18 and a have the necessary student status (it is your responsibility to find another tenant and provide them with the correction information). If you find a suitable replacement tenant and the room is re-let we will refund your deposit, less any appropriate charges, as well as a deduction of 50 for the variation of the contract.


Covid-19 Special Tenancy Procedures for 2020-21 Academic Year Bookings 

Tenancy Agreement 

The tenancy agreement is a legal contract between the tenant and Homes for Students. The tenancy agreement is for a fixed term and the student (and guarantor) are liable for the full term of that agreement unless and until express written release is granted. 

The usual Termination of Student Tenancy Policy applies for all cancellation requests that are not EXPLICITLY related to the COVID-19 (Corona virus) outbreak. 

Initial Cancellation Period A student can cancel a tenancy agreement for up to 14 days after the date the booking is confirmed (the Initial Cancellation Period). For bookings made from 1st August to 30th September ahead of the academic year the booking is for, the Initial Cancellation Period reduces to 7 days. We will refund the full security deposit. 20 will be deducted from the refunded amount to cover any international bank charges for deposit refunds made to non-UK banks. 

Outside the Initial Cancellation Period If a student wishes to cancel outside of the Initial Cancellation Period, and the cancellation reason is explicitly related to COVID-19, then the following applies: 


COVID-19 Special Cancellation Policy (2020-21 Academic Year) 

Outside Initial Cancellation Period You may cancel outside of the Initial Cancellation Period in the following circumstances: 

20-21 Course which is reliant on IELTS/Pre-sessional course If the student is a prospective first year Undergraduate or Postgraduate student and the offer of a place at the University or Higher Education Institute in the UK is subject to completing and passing an IELTS (or equivalent) in the UK or in the students country of origin, and this is unable to be completed because the IELTS (or equivalent) is withdrawn entirely, the student may be eligible to be released from the 20-21 tenancy agreement. 

The student must provide written evidence that the course is no longer taking place at all within 3 days of being notified by the education institute and we will release the student from the 20-21 contract without penalty and refund the deposit paid. 

Travel Ban If the student is unable to travel to, or enter, the UK due to a restriction on leaving their country of origin, or a restriction on entering the UK which means they cannot arrive in time to start their course, the student may be eligible to be released from this agreement subject to evidence being provided of a formal travel ban being in force. 

There must be a specific government ban in place at the start date of the students course that prevents the student coming to the UK, or entering the UK in time to start their course, and there must be no realistic prospect of a delayed course start date. 


Covid-19 Special Tenancy Procedures for 2020-21 Academic Year bookings 2020

20-21 Flexible Start *SOME PROPERTIES ARE EXCLUDED FROM THE 2020-21 FLEXIBLE START POLICY, THIS IS ONLY APPLICABLE AT PROPERTIES AS DISPLAYED If the course start date in the UK is formally delayed by the University or Higher Education Institute, the student may be eligible for a reduction in the 20-21 tenancy length, and start the tenancy later. 

The student must provide written evidence that the course start date has been delayed within 3 days of being notified by the education institute, or this must be publicly available and formally announced by the University, the contract may be adjusted accordingly. 

If a tenancy agreement is adjusted, the reduction in tenancy length will be by a maximum of the length of the formal delay to teaching unless specifically stated otherwise. Some properties may have a maximum length of delay. 

Termination by Choice A tenancy cannot be terminated outside of the Initial Cancellation Period by a student who is already in the UK, or by a student who does not want to attend the university, or who does not want to come to the UK of their own choice. The student remains liable for the entire rent until a suitable replacement tenant is found and all clauses within the tenancy agreement remain applicable. If the room is re-let we will refund the deposit, less any appropriate charges and a deduction of 50 for the administration of the variation of the tenancy agreement.
