Tenant wishing to withdraw
My daughter has a student friend who signed a contract last Friday and paid a deposit by cash into the agent's bank account today.
It was a 12 month contract due to start 5th August.
She's now had an offer to move in with people she likes better and wants to withdraw.
The agents have told her that as she has signed the contract she can't get out of it. She's asked me for advice and my gut instinct is that as the contract hasn't commenced then there ought to be a cooling off period and she could legitimately ask for the deposit back.
Am I being naive?
