According to a recent study 8 out of 10 students overpay for their student accommodation. And, worst, most students do not even know if they are overpaying or that such legal options are available.
As a student the most important thing you can do is check your rent to make sure you are not overpaying
The national student union, LSVb, has set up the housing hotline; a legal service that offers legal advice to students that need it. It is a perfect place to start if you feel like your landlord is doing something illegal.
