    Recently i got evicted for doing some silly things from Paragon in Brentford, at UWL.
    I've already moved out, but hadn't paid the 3rd installment of the rent at the time
    Am i liable to pay the 3rd installment even if i'm not there, because basically my contract got terminated right? Also do i get my deposit back?

    Any help would be amazing, so stressed as i haven't told my parents

    You probably have to pay the next installment unless they are able to relet your accommodation. If they relet they are still entitled to reasonable expenses associated with reletting. As for your deposit - if you've done silly things chances are there will be costs for putting things right that will come out of your deposit. Be prepared not to get any back. If the accommodation is university owned you probably can't graduate until you pay any debts.

    You need advice from your student union and you need to tell your parents exactly what you have done. They can't help you clear up this mess unless they have the full facts.

    Would there be a time period for me to pay that back? I don't plan to pay it back unless they ask for it,
    I'm too afraid to tell my parents as i can gauge their reaction will not be good at all

    All of this will depend on your contract. Sod your parents, what you need to do next is take advice from your student's union. They will have seen this situation before and will know the lie of the land, as well as being able to negotiate with the university on your behalf.

    The time period can be negotiated but you can't graduate until you've paid. The university will have a pretty good idea of your current finances and hence what would be reasonable to expect you to pay. In theory they could take it to court and send baliffs after your possessions but that won't happen if you agree repayments and stick to them.

    Speak to your student union, they'll have heard it all before. Your parents need to know you've moved out and they'll deduce you owe money. They will be angry but they'll come round.
