Student rental accommodation
Hello im new to this I hope I'm in the right forum! My daughter and 5 of her uni friends had decided to look at a 6 bed house to rent next year in leeds instead of the halls which they are in now. They looked at the property were happy with it and signed a tenancy agreement but they all needed a guarantor,were told they needed to pay 300 deposit but 100 would be OK for now until they got there next student loan payment then they could pay the next 200 then. 1 parent has signed as a guarantor 2 girls have dropped out so theyve all decided not to take the house now. The estate agent is saying he's going to take legal action against them if they don't take the house and find 2 more people to take the spaces. Surely this can't be correct as they haven't even paid the deposit in full or have guarantors in place bar the 1 girl who has her guarantor. Hope this all makes sense any advise appreciated.
