Petition Action

Stop students PAYMENTS for rent, in halls and outside of halls if not in use.

Petition Details

The government could work with the universities and potentially have a stronger say on these companies that treat students badly.
This should allow students to get out of contracts if they are not living there.
Landlords are known not to care about students and this is what is happening now.

Additional Information

Students have been unable to get out of contracts that were signed in 2019 and have had to pay thousands of pounds for something they do not use as well as paying additional charges for alternative rent (such as being at home).
All we are asking as students is for this to be looked at and recognised as a problem, things are hard for everyone we understand that, but we also have had it hard in the past year, but it is not discussed as much by the government unless questioned about it.

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

Suspending payments for rent or ending a tenancy early is a matter for individual landlords, and not the UK Government or Parliament.
