If we've notified you that referencing is complete and reports have been sent to the landlord, the next step is for the landlord to make a decision on your application.
There are three main options here that the landlord can choose based on the result of your referencing:
- Proceed to contract-signing
- Request a guarantor for you
- Cancel your application and refund your holding deposit
If you want to find out what's going on with your application, OpenRent lets you contact the landlord directly so you can arrange the next steps that suit you both - not a third party letting agent!
We encourage the landlord to make their decision very quickly so that you're not left hanging, but if you want to get in touch with them, just use the contact details you used to arrange the viewing, or send them a message via the site.
