3. Extenuating circumstances e.g.: ill-health, family circumstances
Evidence of a) or b) should be supplied to iQ Student Accommodation within 72 hours of receiving official confirmation.
Where the reason for cancellation can’t be proved in line with the above, the student will remain liable for the full contractual rent, unless and until a replacement tenant is found. The student is responsible for finding an eligible replacement tenant, although site staff will assist where possible. If a replacement tenant is found, the student will be released from the contractual obligations laid out in the Tenancy Agreement and any rent money will be refunded. The booking fee will be retained.
