    Soo, im thinking of living in student house share. The contract is for 10 months and its a student only house..

    I was wondering what would happen if i quit the course? and got a job?

    Would i have to move out? If i did, does anyone know how easy it is to find a replacement tennant?

    If anyone could help that would be great

    Thanks x

    Er, don't tell them and you should be fine.

    Or, don't quit the course?

    You could stay, but you'd have to pay 75% of the Council Tax.

    75% for the whole house?! I have no idea how much council tax is...

    I need to decide by Thursday if i want this room, but im having doubts about the course and if i can stick to it :/

    Yes, 75% of the whole house. This can be an issue, especially if it's a large house. If you look on the website of the local council you should be able to get a rough idea of how much it would be.

    From a tenancy point of view, do you know what sort of contract you would be on? Would it be an individual contract for your own room, or a joint tenancy with the other people living in the house, or would the landlord also be living there and letting out rooms? It varies as to what measures the landlord would have to take to get you to leave, and how likely they'd be to actually bother doing it just because you weren't a student.

    I know someone that did this last year basically they just didnt tell the landlord as they intended to keep the same house this year when she will be back at uni but on a different course. Tho that is illegal so i wouldnt recommend it

    Assuming tuition fees are already paid, don't 'quit' university. Simply stop going to lectures/ don't turn up for exams and work full time until the contract is satisfied
