With most universities now adopting remote learning and students being actively discouraged from returning after the Christmas/New Year break, many students (and their parents) are wondering why they are continuing to pay rent for university accommodation. The issue has already attracted the attention of the Competition & Markets Authority and numerous MPs. In this webinar, barristers from Landmark Chambers examine the issues involved and outline possible remedies.
