    Hi guys I just wanted some advice as to what I could/should do in my situation. Essentially I signed a contract for a student house back in January, but since then have started working full time and am not going to be going back to university this September. I have tried contacting the letting agency several times and have not received any help on the situation (they haven't actually contacted me about the house at all since the signing of the contract back in January!?).

    Start advertising the contract that you signed (Your part) on websites, and leave your contact details in the hope someone takes your room. Or offer it at a slightly cheaper price and take a slight financial hit but you'll save most of the cost of the contract.

    Any websites you could recommend? I emailed my student union yesterday but haven't received a response yet.
    Yeah I was thinking that if I find someone I could get the contract switched over to them and then pay the first month for them?
