Is there a FREE cancellation period if I’m still undecided on what to do?
Yes! If you have booked a 21/22 academic year room with us here at dwell, you can cancel your 21/22 contract up to and including the 31st May 2021 without being tied into the contract or being responsible for any rental fees. This is not applicable to any students that have deferred their 20/21 contract to the 21/22 year.
If you are cancelling after 31st May 2021, then the below Cancellation Policy applies.
What if I sign/signed my contract on or before the 31st July 2021?
Up to and including the 31st July 2021, you can sign your contract but then request to cancel within 3 days of signing your contract. This is known as your 3-day cooling-off period.
If however you signed your contract on or before 31st July, but you request to cancel outside of your 3 days cooling-off period, then you will be tied into the contract until a suitable replacement tenant is found.
What if I sign/signed my contract on or after 1st August 2021?
If you sign your contract on or after 1st August 2021, you will be immediately tied into the contract as we do not offer a cooling-off period on or after this date.
