I have sent a landlord a few messages in the last 24 hours aswell as putting down a holding deposit but I’ve had nothing back, I’m feeling slightly uneasy that I may have been scammed…
Nicola12 did you send thru openrent? or did you give money direct to the landlord ?
I sent it through openrent
then it should be safe. they will reply to your statement .good like that
Thank you for the advice
Can you tell us the outcome?
Hello, there has been no response from the homeowner for 48 hours, although the website says 24, I paid a deposit, what should I do, didn’t they cheat me?
We would always recommend reaching out to the landlord prior to making an application.
However, if this has not been done then you can withdraw the deposit after 24 hours of placing it if there is no response from the landlord by using the following link:
Where the landlord is unresponsive we will chase them for a response and you are welcome to also reach out to them directly - the landlord has 96 hours to reach a decision on how to proceed.
if you have any further questions, or wish to discuss this further, you can reach our customer support team by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org
