So me and my friends have successfully signed for our house coming this September. Before we were asked to sign, the question was raised about whether we could move in straight away, and they said it's perfectly fine. As soon as the home is available. However, recently the landlord has now refused to let us move in until we pay for the first term. We don't get our student loan until the 19th September. This was never specified during the signing procedure and wanted advice on what I could do. Is what they are doing even legal?
What do you think?
