Petition Action

Let University Students Cancel their Tenancy Contracts with Private Landlords

Petition Details

I would like the government to consider allowing students to be released from their private landlord tenancies, relieving them of paying rent for places they are not actually living.

Additional Information

Many university students are paying rent for student houses when a lot are moving home due to the fact they do not have to attend university. It is extremely frustrating for students like myself to be paying thousands of pounds of rent for somewhere they are not living and the rules need to change

We can't accept your petition because the UK Government aren't responsible for the issue you raise. Private contractual arrangements would be a matter for individuals and landlords.
