Intro

COVID-19 Cancellation Policy

If a government lockdown is still imposed come September (whether it be the UK or internationally mandated) and it impacts the tenants ability to arrive at your accommodation, then the tenancy start date and consequent rent balance will be amended to reflect this.

Furthermore, any other COVID-19 related issues outside of lockdown, that impact the tenants ability to utilise their tenancy at Manor Villages can be assessed on a case by case basis by our directors. Comprehensive evidence will need to be sent to the property email for review. This falls in line with their normal cancellation policy.

By law, if you pay a deposit to your landlord or letting agent then they must protect it in a government-authorised tenancy deposit protection scheme. It applies to all landlords and agents in England and Wales who have an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) agreement (the contract) with their tenant.

It was introduced to ensure that you are able to get your deposit back from your landlord or agent when you move out.


What happens if I change my mind after booking the room? Before/after I move in, before/after I send my contracts back?
