    Before coming to the university, i secured a room with Broadgate park. But a few days before arriving in uk, i instead got a private accomodation because it was cheaper and much better. I did not pay any deposit, thinking that my broadgate offer would automatically get cancelled once the due date passed. But till now I'm getting emails from them to pay saying that its legally binding for you to pay. I never lived in broadgate park even for a day amd paid no deposit fee. What should i do?

    have you signed a contract? if you signed a contract you will have to pay, doesn't matter about the deposit

    you really should have let them know, plenty of people pay a bit late and they might have missed out on getting another tenant because of you

    I did not sign any tangible contract...but accepted the accomodation offer online. I told them about my decision of not taking the accomodation in August i.e., before start of the session. But according to them I had the right to cancel the contract only within 7 days of accepting the offer, which I did back in March last year
