If the property is suitable and you would like to proceed with an application please contact Lisa's Homes on our office telephone number, we will require some information about your current situation, income, address and credit history for the past 6 years to check the property will be suitable for you.
APPLICATIONS: Applications for tenancies are subject to the provisional approval of the owners of the property before the application is completed with Van Mildert our Credit Referencing Company. Tenants & Guarantors will be contacted by Van Mildert, they will complete a Credit Search, Affordability Assessment and obtain Employment & Landlord References. They will also require identification and proof of income.
HOLDING DEPOSIT: In order to secure a property and remove it from the market while Van Mildert completes your application and obtains your references, a Holding Deposit equivalent of one weeks rent will be payable to Lisa's Homes before the application can be completed. Listed below are grounds on which the holding deposit is NOT refundable:
1. If you the tenant pulls out of the tenancy before the contracts are signed.
2. If you the tenant fails a Right to Rent check.
3. If you the tenant provides false or misleading information - this does not mean failing referencing. If you the tenant provides completely accurate information, but still fails referencing, that will be classed as the landlord or agent pulling out. However, if you have actively provided false information and we can prove you have, we can withhold the holding deposit.
4. If you the tenant doesn't enter the agreement by the deadline.
5. If you the tenant are dragging your feet and not responding to emails, not giving the referencing agency what they need for longer than 15 days, you will also forfeit your holding deposit and the property will be re-advertised.
RIGHT TO RENT: Van Mildert will confirm what Identification will be required at your move in meeting with Lisa's Homes. We will need to see the original Identification so that this can be certified. A copy of your Identifcation will be retained.

Our agency will not progress an application until the holding deposit has been paid and an application form is completed and returned by the applicant(s). To avoid unnecessary delays, it’s important that you return your application form(s) within 48 hours.
The holding deposit is the equivalent of one week’s rent, which once paid, is offset against the total balance due.
A tenancy cannot be completed until the agreed first month’s rent and bond are paid in full. On occasions, the Landlord may request a guarantor in order to offer a tenancy subject to referencing. The holding deposit is non-refundable should following referencing, it is discovered that key material facts have been omitted or prove false which then leads to the Landlord declining your application.
By paying the holding deposit, the property you have reserved will be taken off the market and all future viewings cancelled, and it is therefore deemed fair that the tenant will receive no refund should they later decide not to take up the tenancy or fail to move in on the agreed proposed check in date.
If the Landlord decides against proceeding with the tenancy, the tenant will receive a full refund of all monies paid.
