Hi everyone,



My Daughter has got herself in a pickle

- she is going to uni and against our advice re-signed her tenancy agreement that doesn't start till June 2018

my wife was the guarantor but she has not signed and my daughter has not paid any deposit yet.


she has now fallen out with the others that she is sharing with currently and does not want to continue staying there next year after the current agreement expires in June 2018.


She has been in touch with the letting agents who have told her that there is no way out since she signed unless she finds someone herself to take her place.


she only did this due to the amount of emails they kept sending and they were using scare tactics to tell her that if they don't sign some one else will take the property.


This and the Uni workload was stressing her so she signed it and now regrets that.


is there any way out of it now as Guarantor hasn't signed and no deposit paid ?


thanks for your help in advance

a contract is a contract so valid and enforceable.

Now the saving grace is the LL and the lettingagency have to try and mitigate their losses by finding another tenant and if they do she is in the clear as the contract will be suoerceded by the new one with the other people. If they try and find new tenants but fail then they can chase her for the money.

As for finding someone to take her palce, that is what they get paid for and they will lose a claim for mnies due to failing to mitigate their losses. They are just being lazy. Daughter could have a word with the student or college accommodation service, they are good at making people see sense because they have thousands of potentia customers for landlords and a letting agency being put on a blacklist for student accommodation in a university town ( other than London or Oxford) will damage their business massively and the landlords will be going elsewhere as well so a vicious spiral for them.

Dau should also attempt to mitigate her & Gs potential losses by advertising the place via other students, Students Union and College Housing Officer. She has decided not to occupy and withdraw from the joint Agreement and could be sued for her rent by fellow occupiers unless aware of her decision now!
