    I'm not sure whether anyone can help me with this but are there ways of requesting to leave Peel Park without having to finding someone to fill the flat. Various personal circumstances make it difficult for me to stay in the student halls so I wanted to move to private rented accommodation but the department said although I can leave anytime I would have to pay the rent until someone else moves in...ie tough !

    cheers

    I had a look, but I cant see the terms of the licence accommodation. I expect it to say you are liable till you find a replacement.

    In rare circumstance a uni might depart from that i.e you ot run over or someone died, but generally speaking they are not interested. A few unis might allow for this. I have seen ones in Scotland just charge you for the term, but I wouldnt bank on it.

    I would think the fact you are moving into private rented would count against you. You can try and offer a discount just to get rid. Holding you to the agreement is the same for everyone else.
