How to get out of a housing contract

Hi. I entered into a housing contract that I no longer want to follow through with. Does anyone have any advice on finding someone to take my place?

Hi there,
Firstly, I'd say to get in touch with your accommodation provider/estate agent to let them know and confirm whether or not you meet their cancellation policy. If not, they may have a waiting list or be able to offer guidance. It's important that you acknowledge that you're still liable for the rent until a replacement tenant is found.

In terms of finding a replacement tenant, using forums like TSR or sites like SpareRoom are good options. Sharing on social media and word of mouth can also help.

Hope this helps!
