My son and his friends are looking for accomodation for the second year of their studies. They are all currently in Halls of Residence.
They have found a suitable house but the landlord says the contract is from June for a full 12 months. I am just clarifying this is normal. I appreciate landlords need rent but would have thought they would just factor it in to the rent over the 9 month period.
It seems absurd to be paying for three months of rent when he wouldn't be there. Any ex students or landlords able to confirm I would appreciate it. Thanks
