    I am, its been ongoing now for just over two weeks and in that time we have had to chase them up most of the time. It has been stressful.

    Went to the letting agents yesterday to take ther gaurantor forms. Was told that they were still waiting for the landord to get back to them to discuss the application again since they spoke to my fiance on thursday. I was told that my reference had come back ok. So not sure if i need a gaurantor or not. We were told that they would get the person who is dealing with it to phone me on monday morning to let us know what is happening.

    Problem with the letting agents is that i get told they will phone me and then they do, this has happned numerous times now.

    So now confused.

    We both need one, my fathers income wouldn't cover my fiance as well. Now getting worried as the letting agents have put the to let sign up outside the house and i think it will go on the website on monday as thats when they update it and what happens if someone like this house and applys for it and the other house falls through. I know that the landlord needs to find someone else for this house if we move out which is fair enough. It seems that in me and my fiance its only me that is worried.

    Hi thankyou for your help, am very grateful. I phoned the letting agents and they said they need the actual documents. Now hoping that my fiance mum will be his gaurantor.

    Again, there is no set time for how long the guarantor forms will take to reference. The more information, and supportnig documentation the guarantors can provide to proove their income the quicker it will be, esp in the case of private pensions, independent means or a combination of incomes. The homelet forms should indicate what they need to provide, so make sure they are read carefully & filled out correctly. Call Homelet if your guarantors are unsure of anything
    Thankyou very much for your help. Does the documentation need to be an orginal or can it be photo copied.

    If the agents are fully referencing you then Homelet will insist that any student of benefit applicants have a guarantor. It might be though that they are just carrying out a credit check on yourself and fully referencing your fiance for the full rent amount, however, with his credit history which you have indicated earlier, chances are he is going to need a guarantor too as although his income may be high enough, his credit rating may be low.
    Hi thankyou very much for your help.

    We have heard back from the letting agents today after chasing them up. I need a guarantor and so does my fiance. He has sent the form to his mum which she has recieved today and are hoping that she will be a guarantor for him. If she agrees to it, my fiance is going to take my form in tomorrow as he will need to wait for his mum to post the form back for him.

    They said that my reference has not come back yet and when they spoke to my fiance they said it had partly come back.

    Will the guarantor ones be quicker as both the guarantors are retired and own their own homes?

    The landlord has said he is happy as long as we have guarantors.

  • Reply to Unilateral Break Clause
    by leaseholder64
    If this is verbatim, it is atrociously drafted. You don't, for example, receive a break clause. I'm still trying to work out how to interpret the smoking clause. I think this would have to go to court before one could say for certain what it means.

    Hiya, I'm not good at this kind of thing.

    I moved​ ​​into a flat in London two weeks ago with a verbal agreement that the other T would not be smoking indoors, at the viewing. This is a joint contract.

    The contract says: "Smoking inside the property is not permitted...

    Based on recommendations on this site we used uPad and we had what we thought was excellent service - sadly they have closed.

    What are the members current recommendations for online letting agents?

    Many thanks

    Don't commit to anything until you have a proper evaluation of "leakages".
    You can negotiate at any point up to exchange of contracts - after that is possible but can be costly.

    As for fraud, yes, don't use email to do anything involving money.

    Hi,

    We have made an offer to a property in London and we are waiting for the mortgage to come through. However, offer has been accepted and process started. We heard the flat has some leakages so we are asking access to view the property with a plumber so he can tell the work that is needed....

    Hi, I am currently going through the process of evicting my tenants in a property via for not paying the rent.

    Is the leak from the flat above? In which case, that would be access to someone else's property. You don't have a right of entry. Or is it a leak from the roof, in which case, it is a shared building costs (so all the neighbours needs to pay for repairs).

    If it is a water pipe leak, it...
