Cancellation Policy

Early cancellation?
You have the right to cancel your agreement for a period lasting 14 days following you entering into the Agreement. Your cancellation needs to be provided in writing to the village where you were due to reside. Provided such written notice is received by the village within 14 days of you entering into the Agreement you will get a full refund of your deposit and/ or rent advance (this may be subject to the administration fee provided at “Charges” below).

Is this your first time away from home?
If this is going to be your first year at university, and you do not yet have an unconditional firm offer from the university, you might be worried about what will happen if you don’t receive an unconditional firm offer. We understand this concern, and if you do not receive that essential unconditional firm offer you can cancel your room booking anytime up to 7 days after A-level results day. This cancellation needs to be provided in writing to the village where you were due to reside along with full supporting evidence from the University or UCAS, and if received within this time frame you will get a full refund of your deposit and/ or rent advance (this may be subject to the administration fee provided at “Charges” below).

Need a visa to study in the UK?
If you require a visa to study in the UK, but your visa application has been rejected, you may cancel your room booking up to 7 days after rejection of your visa application, and no later than 7 days after A-level results day. This cancellation needs to be provided in writing to the village where you were due to reside along with full supporting evidence of the rejection, and if received within this time frame your contract will be cancelled and you will get a full refund of your deposit and/ or rent advance (this may be subject to the administration fee provided at “Charges” below).

You may not cancel your room booking once you have arrived at the Village and accepted a room, and in this case, the terms of the AST will apply.

Termination in other circumstances
If none of the paragraphs above apply to you and you need to terminate your Agreement for another reason once you have signed your agreement or started your tenancy, or you do not comply with the time periods for Notice set out above then you will need to find a suitable replacement tenant.
