It will be your responsibility to find a replacement tenant and we will have sole discretion on whether the new tenant passes all administrative checks. Please note that we will not agree to a replacement tenant unless all outstanding accounts with us are settled.
If we agree to accept a replacement tenant you will be required to pay an administration fee of £50 to us for our administration costs. Once the replacement tenant has entered into a Tenancy Agreement and paid their first instalment of Rent, you will not have to pay any further Rent for the Room. Please note that no replacement tenants will be accepted for any tenancy which is terminated after 1 June and that you will be responsible for the costs of cleaning of the room once you have left.
Any decision made to release you from your Tenancy Agreement for any reason that does not fall within these criteria is made by us, at our sole discretion on a case by case basis.
