My daughter, a rising sophomore at a college in Georgia signed a contract for dorm housing back in April thinking she was just signing the application to reserve her room of choice. She is 18 and of course is of legal age, but did not read the fine print which states she signed a legal contract between her and the university. If the contract is cancelled, we are still responsible for the cost of staying in the dorm, which is $4,000 for the year. We have found an apartment off campus that is less expensive than the dorm room and we have been pleading with the housing department to let us out of this contract but they want their money, even though I know they would place another student in that room in place of my daughter. I have read the contract over and over trying to find a way out. The only glitch I see on the contract is that they stated the period of the contract beginning 8/10/2007 and ending 5/03/2007. Obviously the contract should state it ends 5/3/2008. My question is, is this enough to make the contract non-binding, the fact that they listed the date wrong? Thanks for any help anyone has to offer.
