    Hey guys
    I signed a contract about a month ago for a room in private halls for a certain amount a week. I've just looked on their website again and they've reduced the price of the same room by £15 a week. I haven't heard anything from them about reducing my rent so I'm guessing Im expected to pay the extra £15 a week.*
    Is this something they're allowed to do? What can I do now I've signed a more expensive contract for the exact same room?
    Thanks for any help! *

    Since you signed a contract, you agreed to pay that price. You can ask if they will let you pay the cheaper price, but they probably won't agree to it. It's the same as if you buy something from a shop and then later it goes into the sale - you have no rights to demand the lower price.
